Abstract: The dead leaves image model is often used for measurement of the spatial frequency response (SFR) of digital cameras, where response to fine texture is of interest. It has a power spectral density (PSD) similar to natural images and image features of varying sizes, making it useful for measuring the texture-blurring effects of non-linear noise reduction which may not be well analyzed by traditional methods. The standard approach for analyzing images of this model is to compare observed PSDs to the analytically known one. However, recent works have proposed a cross-correlation based approach which promises more robust measurements via full-reference comparison with the known true pattern. A major assumption of this method is that the observed image and reference image can be aligned (registered) with sub-pixel accuracy.
