Measures the differences between 2 images, and measurement of image quality.

File Information

main executing reference usage: usage_errorMeasurementsOfImages.m
The objective is to measure the differences between 2 images, and measurement of image quality.
1. Mean squared error, MSE
2. Root Mean squared error, RMSE
3. Peak signal to signal noise ratio, PSNR
4. Mean absolute error, MAE
5. Signal to signal noise ratio, SNR
6. Universal Image Quality Index
7. Enhancement Measurement Error, EME
8. Pearson Correlation Coefficient

Sample output:
PSNR = +13.81915 dB
MSE = 108.53790
RMSE = 10.41815
Universal Image Quality Index = 0.16077
EME (original image) = 14.50599
EME (noisy image) = 8.48040
PearsonCorrelationCoefficient (originalImage vs noisyImage) = 30959.27033
PearsonCorrelationCoefficient (originalImage vs originalImage) = 50624.00000
SNR = -10.28091 dB
MAE = 19.82882

I have calculated PSNR for some image that I enhanced.Now,I need to plot a graph of PSNR vs Bitrate(Kbps).How can I calculate the bitrate of a jpeg/tif/bmp image?

Hi Shashi,
The utilities works with image of MxN (where M != N) as well.

Try insert these lines as a test starting from line 23 in usage sample code (usage_errorMeasurementsOfImages.m) :

M = 225; N = 150;
IMG = imresize(IMG, [M N], 'bicubic');

I hope this is clear. You may wish to email me for further inquires, as it is easier to trace the comments in my inbox. I hope it helps.
Thank you.

Can you please send the code for its implementation in case the size of image is M by N.
