We present algorithms for predicting the quality of colour reproductions of natural scenes. The algorithms are based on a three-point concept for image quality: (1) images are carriers of visual information about the outside world and the objects located in it, (2) images are used by the visual and cognitive systems to reconstruct and interpret the outside world, and (3) the quality of an image is the degree of success with which this image can be used by the visual and cognitive systems.
