Until now, the evaluation of product packaging has been performed subjectively since no other way existed. Previous research has also shown that people tend to prefer images with high fractal dimension. If so, then the fractal dimension of product package images should enable a determination of how preferable product packages would be, or function as an index to estimate whether product packages would attract attention. In this study, we calculated the fractal dimension for packages of 45 types
