A Model for Weighting Image Objects in Home Photographs

Abstract : The paper presents a contribution to image indexing consisting in a weighting model for visible objects - or image objects - in home photographs. To improve its effectiveness this weighting model has been designed according to human perception criteria about what is estimated as important in photographs. Four basic hypotheses related to human perception are presented, and their validity is estimated as compared to actual observations from a user study. Finally a formal definition of this weighting model is presented and its consistence with the user study is evaluated.
