    Image quality as a general notion relates both to elementary and to complex visual functions. In this paper we deal with a few of them, which correspond to some lines of research at our Institute. We start with threshold predictions in time and space domains by means of elementary response functions, which have been recently developed considerably, although full generalization has not yet been achieved. As to suprathreshold stimuli, the responses of subjects usually have to be scaled. Here we deal with some problems connected with scaling techniques. After a brief discussion of the applicability of notions on visual conspicuity and visual search to image quality problems, we finally discuss reading from alphanumeric displays.
