There are many applications for Image Quality Assessment (IQA) in digital image processing. Many techniques have been proposed to measure the quality of an image such as Peak Signal to Noise Ratio (PSNR), Structural Similarity (SSIM), and Mean Structural Similarity Index Measurement (MSSIM). In this paper, a new technique, namely, Edge Based Image Quality Assessments (EBIQA) is proposed. The proposed technique is based on different edge features which are extracted from original (distortion free) and distorted images. The new approach was implemented and tested using different images which have been taken from A57 and WIQ image databases. The experimental results show that the functionality of the EBIQA technique is better than the state of art IQA techniques. The proposed technique is consistent with the mean opinion score which makes it suitable for automatic image quality assessment. © 2015 Springer Science+Business Media New York
