Image quality assessments have shown that both JPEG and JPEG2000 compression schemes are dependent on scene content. This paper addresses the problem of scene dependency and scene susceptibility in image quality assessments and proposes image analysis as a means to group test scenes, according to basic inherent scene properties that human observers refer to when they judge the quality of images. Experimental work is carried out to investigate the relationship between scene content and the subjective results obtained from experimental work carried out in [S. Triantaphillidou, E. Allen, and R. E. Jacobson, “Image quality comparison between JPEG and JPEG2000. II. Scene dependency, scene analysis, and classification”, J. Imaging Sci. Technol. 51, 259 (2007)]. © 2007 Society for Imaging Science and Technology. The content of the test images used in this work is analyzed using simple image analysis measures that quantify various image features, such as original scene contrast and global brightness, amount of dominant lines, scene busyness (defined here as a scene/image property indicating the presence or absence of detail), and flat areas within the scene. Preliminary results and conclusions are obtained and suggestions are made to form a basis for further studies on scene dependency and scene classification with respect to image quality measurements.
