A new graininess metrics, differing from the traditional ones in taking into consideration the effects of lightness, chroma and hue angle, and applicable to digital prints, is posed. Print samples from electrophotography, offset print, ink jet, thermal dye transfer, thermofusible ink transfer, and silver halide are evaluated with this new metrics, and the results are compared. The graininess index calculated from this metrics is used to classify the graininess rating based on subjective observations.
