This paper presents a reduced-reference quality metric that quantifies the perceptual quality of the synthesized textures. The metric is based on the change in perceived regularity between the original and the synthesized textures. The perceived regularity is quantified through a modified texture regularity metric based on visual attention. It is shown through subjective testing that the proposed metric has a strong correlation with the Mean Opinion Score for the fidelity of synthesized textures and outperforms the state-of-the-art full-reference quality metrics.
