The paper presents the fundamentals of informative approach to imaging and visual perception of images. The principle of information conformity based on non-linear, inertia-less transformation of images in total information flow has been formulated. Extreme transformations in five classes have been discovered, among which contrast, hyperbolic and uniform transformations are emphasized.
