A no-reference image quality metric detecting both blur and noise is proposed in this paper. The proposed metric is based on IFS2 entropy applied on computer-generated images and does not require any edge detection. Its value drops either when the test image becomes blurred or corrupted by random noise. It can be thought of as an indicator of the signal to noise ratio of the image. Experiments using synthetic, natural and computer-generated images are presented to demonstrate the effectiveness and robustness of this metric. The proposed measure has been too compared with full-reference quality measures (or faithfullness measures) like SSIM and gives satisfactory performance.
