DMP-255 - Visual Quality and Aesthetics

2 credits

This course offers in-depth survey into the nature of visual aesthetics and visual quality evaluation systems for computer-synthesized images. We will take a close look at the visual scientific profiles that make images work both aesthetically and expressively, such as composition, lighting, tonal range, and color. We will also study the various empirical systems of measuring the quality of our visual images. Systems of image resolution, brightness range, density and color specification will be discussed. A major concern of this course will be the conversion of original images into functional images for specific multi- media application. Through the combination of theoretical lecture and practical laboratory application, the student will learn to critically evaluate visual material for multimedia production
