Paper Abstract

The purpose of this work is to suggest a way to utilize image statistics to guide optimization of brightness distributions, towards a goal of complete systematization of image processing to achieve a purely aesthetic objective, with entropy as a response metric. We start with a survey of classic pictorial photographs, proceed to a heuristic theoretical treatment of the brightness distribution function, and follow with several pictorial illustrations of the proposed concept.
