Participate in a user-study regarding image quality degradations. You will be presented with 300 images, in the form of a browser-based survey. Help us determine what types of quality degradations are shown in each image, and provide a quality rating.
We're looking for participants that are experienced with photography (or image editing and graphics design) and have a good understanding of the different types of quality degradations that images can show.
This experiment is part of a research project that we're conducting at University of Konstanz in Germany. Our group is working on image quality assessment. In this particular case we're looking into how well people can relate to the different types of degradations that are often encountered in public images available online e.g. photo sharing communities.
We are studying technical quality. In contrast to the aesthetic quality of an image, technical quality refers exclusively to the annoyance of different types of degradations that are visible in images. For instance, we're not concerned with the composition of the photograph, its framing or pleasantness of the subject material.

- complete the study, by answering the 3 questions for each of the 300 images
- report your crowdflower "worker id", so we can confirm your participation in the study
As a web designer and photographer I can fulfill this task. I have already signed up for an account with crowdflower.
