Abstract

Computer aesthetic assessment of pictures is aimed at automatically computed aesthetic values of pictures. It has potential wide areas of application in real world. We apply color harmony, one of the most important aesthetic standards, and explore the spatial context of features. Based on the framework of [9], we provide a color harmony descriptor which includes the circular region sampling method, and follow the principle of Ordered-Bag-of-Features to explore the spatial context. And we conduct experiments on a public and large-scale aesthetic assessment dataset. Experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.
