The errors in imaging system create distorted image which affect the human perception of the image. This degradation in quality of image can be evaluated by image quality assessment (IQA) methods. To evaluate human subjectivity, the techniques need to follow the method of human visual system (HVS). The processing of image in extra cortical region of human brain is still unknown. Many attempts have been made to give an IQA algorithm that follows the philosophy of human observations. A brief experimental study of these philosophies has been made in this paper, which would help researchers to develop much improved IQA techniques in future.
