Traditionally, the appearance of an object in an image is edited to elicit a preferred perception. However, the editing method might be arbitrary and might not consider the human perception mechanism. In this study, the authors explored image-based leather “authenticity” editing using an estimation model that considers a perception mechanism derived in their previous work. They created leather rendered images by emphasizing or suppressing image properties corresponding to the “authenticity.” Subsequently, they performed two subjective experiments, one using fully edited images and another using partially edited images whose specular reflection intensity was constant. Participants observed the leather rendered images and evaluated the differences in the perception of “authenticity.” The authors found that the “authenticity” perception could be changed by manipulating the intensity of specular reflection and the texture (grain and surface irregularity) in the images. The results of this study could be used to tune the properties of images to make them more appealing.

More about this publication?
  • The Journal of Imaging Science and Technology (JIST) is dedicated to the advancement of imaging science knowledge, the practical applications of such knowledge, and how imaging science relates to other fields of study. The pages of this journal are open to reports of new theoretical or experimental results, and to comprehensive reviews. Only original manuscripts that have not been previously published, nor currently submitted for publication elsewhere, should be submitted.

    IS&T's JIST-first publication option allows authors wishing to present their work at conferences, but have a journal citation for their paper, to submit a paper to JIST that follows the same rigorous peer-review vetting and publication process as traditional JIST articles, but with the benefit of a condensed time-to-publication time frame and guaranteed conference presentation slot.

    Please note: For purposes of its Digital Library content, IS&T defines Open Access as papers that will be downloadable in their entirety for free in perpetuity. Copyright restrictions on papers vary; see individual paper for details.
