Extended IMD2020: a large‐scale annotated dataset tailored for detecting manipulated images

2021 IET Biometrics  
The real versions of these images are also provided. We also manually created binary masks localising the exact manipulated areas of these images.  ...  Image forensic datasets need to accommodate a complex diversity of systematic noise and intrinsic image artefacts to prevent any overfitting of learning methods to a small set of camera types or manipulation  ...  A range of compression levels brings a range of quantization noise into the visual content. Different manipulation techniques yield different editing traces.  ...

Two-stream Encoder-Decoder Network for Localizing Image Forgeries [article]

Aniruddha Mazumdar, Prabin Kumar Bora
2020 arXiv   pre-print
This is motivated from the fact that the forgery creation process generally introduces both the high-level artefacts (e.g. unnatural contrast) and the low-level artefacts (e.g. noise inconsistency) to  ...  In the second stream, the encoder learns the high-level image manipulation features from the input image RGB values.  ...  A perfectly curated forged image looks visually plausible; Nevertheless, the forgery creation process introduces various high-level and low-level artefacts in the forged image.  ...

A disocclusion replacement approach to subjective assessment for depth map quality evaluation

2014 2014 3DTV-Conference: The True Vision - Capture, Transmission and Display of 3D Video (3DTV-CON)  
The videos and images rendered using the highly compressed depth maps, (i.e. depth maps compressed by setting a high QP value: namely QP32 and QP42), have been generally penalised by the observers.  ...  The compression mode was set to a constant QP to maintain a consistent level of quantization errors.  ...

Quality Assessment in Computer Graphics [chapter]

Guillaume Lavoué, Rafał Mantiuk
2014 Visual Signal Quality Assessment  
This broad area of research includes many subdomains which make intensive use of quality assessment and/or artefact visibility evaluation: geometry processing, rendering, HDR imaging, tone mapping and  ...  We broadly classify these existing works into image-based (i.e. evaluating artefacts introduced in 2D rendered images and videos) and model-based approaches (i.e. artefacts introduced on the 3D models  ...  The visual difference predictors can be further weighted by a saliency map, which accounts for low-level attention [31, 73] and/or task-driven high-level attention [14] .  ...

Visual Distortion Assessment With Emphasis on Spatially Transitional Regions

E. Ong, W. Lin, Z. Lu, S. Yao, M. Etoh
2004 IEEE transactions on circuits and systems for video technology (Print)  
For decompressed images or video, the spatially transitional regions are the regions where major perceptually disturbing artefacts caused by edge impairments (mainly due to blurring and locations where  ...  In this paper, we combine a perceptual model with an integrated detection of the spatially transitional regions in visual distortion evaluation to better match the HVS perception to visual quality.  ...  disturbing artefacts (namely, edge impairment and the presence of false edges) in decoded images.  ...

HistoQC: An Open-Source Quality Control Tool for Digital Pathology Slides

Andrew Janowczyk, Ren Zuo, Hannah Gilmore, Michael Feldman, Anant Madabhushi
2019 JCO Clinical Cancer Informatics  
One of the challenges in DP is the presence of artefacts and batch effects, unintentionally introduced during both routine slide preparation (eg, staining, tissue folding) and digitization (eg, blurriness  ...  Therefore, there is a critical need for a reproducible automated approach of precisely localizing artefacts to identify slides that need to be reproduced or regions that should be avoided during computational  ...  For example, due to the heterogeneity in compression levels typically present between DP scanners and the evidence that the resulting compression artefacts affect performance of deep-learning and AI algorithms  ...

Non-Semantic Evaluation of Image Forensics Tools: Methodology and Database [article]

Quentin Bammey
2021 arXiv   pre-print
With the aim of evaluating image forensics tools, we propose a methodology to create forgeries traces, leaving intact the semantics of the image.  ...  Thus, the only forgery cues left are the specific alterations of one or several aspects of the image formation pipeline.  ...  In particular, CFA-based methods are notoriously weak on JPEG images, since JPEG compression removes the high frequencies, in which mosaic artefacts lie.  ...
