The visual quality of images is outward in image presentation, compression and analysis. Depending on the use, the quality of images may give more information or more experiences to the viewer. However, the relations between mathematical and human methods for grouping the images are not obvious. For example, different humans think differently and so, they make the grouping differently. However, there may be some connections between image mathematical features and human selections. Here we try to find such relations that could give more possibilities for developing the actual quality of images for different purposes. In this study, we present some methods and preliminary results that are based on psychological tests to humans, MPEG-7 based features of the images and face detection methods. We also show some notes and questions belonging to this problem and plans for the future research.
