It is well known that an image has a particular gazing area. From the experimental results of our previous papers, we found that total image quality is highly influenced by quality of the gazing area. In this paper, we evaluated total image quality of degraded images by a physical quality criterion (PQC) calculated from the gazing area. The experimental result showed that the calculated PQC is not dependent on the scene. On the other hand, PQC calculated from the whole area of the image is dependent on the scene content. In this paper, the effectiveness of the evaluation of image quality under the consideration of gazing area is presented and discussed.
