In this paper, we propose a wave leader pyramids based Visual Information Fidelity method for image quality assessment. Motivated by the observations that the human vision systems (HVS) are more sensitive to edge and contour regions and that the human visual sensitivity varies with spatial frequency, we first introduce the two-dimensional wavelet leader pyramids to robustly extract the multiscale information of edges. Based on the wavelet leader pyramids, we further propose a visual information fidelity metric to evaluate the quality of images by quantifying the information loss between the original and the distorted images. Experimental results show that our method outperforms many state-of-the-art image quality metrics.
