Abstract:

The derivation of an approximate summary measure which would relate measurable photographic parameters to judgments of target interpretability was investigated. An alternative technique for the visual ordering of photographs according to image quality was also studied. Precise and approximate analysis techniques of microdensitometer data for obtaining measures of photographic quality parameters were developed for black and white photograpargraphy and a brief f investigation of the extension of these techniques to color images was conducted. Image quality parameter evaluation techniques are documented and some preliminary attempts to derive summary measure functions are discussed.
