The blind image quality assessment algorithms produced every year are mostly “opinion-aware” (OA). It means that they require large numbers of subjective quality scores for regression model training. Subjective quality scores are not easily available, so people are eager to design an opinion-unaware (OU) algorithm which has free subjective quality scores. Besides, the OU algorithm has greater generalization capability than the OA algorithm. Therefore, we propose an OU algorithm based on a visual codebook for multiply distorted image quality assessment. Extensive experiments conducted on the three databases demonstrate that the proposed method is superior to the existing five OU methods in terms of the coherence with the human subjective rating. The MATLAB code is available at
