Re: To cry or to laugh?
Haha the pretention is sad and silly but testing it was fun ;-) I played with it a bit and the thing it seems to do (in a irratic way) is checking contrast levels (global and micro) and checking the application of the thirds rule/golden cut <a href="">83,9/100</a> and <a href="">80,9/100</a>. Oh, and it hates tilt and clutter <a href="">25,6/100</a> ;-))

Thnx Claire :-)

Hello Claire,

Laughing is always better... :-)

I played a little bit with this "thing"
googled "capa"
selected four different URLs of the same shot "D-Day Landings"
here the result for the same photo
with your 1.5/100
impressive software ^^

haha! at last software which understands the logic of points distribution on TE!!!!! ;-))

Bon c'est quand même rigolo à tester même si notre "orgueil" en prend un coup parfois. Je ne sais pas quels sont les critères pris en compte par le logiciel mais il faut avouer que les photos qui ont plus de 99 sont quand même pas mal!

YESSSSS… Finally…

I knew it… I knew it…

I'm better than R. Capa. My average is 1.76/100 against Capa's 1.5/100

Who's laughin' now, heh ?

I took the liberty to evaluate several pictures from my <a href=>Stunners</a> theme (by the most accomplished photographers on the site) and the program sent me a message:

"The software able to properly evaluate such genuine masterpieces hasn't been invented yet"

My next step is to send them to "Ripley's: Believe it or not ?"


Smiling, yours truly

Toujours aussi drôle, George!

Re: To cry or to laugh?
Funny indeed!

I tried something... took one of my photos that I had uploaded "before" and "after" perspective corrections (and before I turned the points off, one of my most successful on TE, without a fan club to give points just because I hit the shutter).

<a href="">This</a> is the post I am talking about, the uncorrected version is in the workshop.

The uncorrected image got about 53, the corrected one a good ten less...

Go figure!

Have a great day/night...

It's also size dependent. While the 400x268 pixel version of <a href="">this</a> got a measly 25, the 800x536 pixel one received a whopping 88. The perceived aesthetics may depend on size or viewing distance but not to this degree, I'd think.

An interesting start-up of an idea that probably stands no chance to replace human perception.
