       jpegjudge - guess jpeg picture quality


       jpegjudge [ -V ]

       jpegjudge [ -b ] file ...


       Jpegjudge  reads  each  argument and attempts to guess the quality with
       which it was saved. Currently, only a rough indicator  is  calculcated,
       ranging from 0 (lowest quality) to 1000 (highest quality), an extension
       to other formats would be straightforward, but isn’t planned.

       It can read all pictures the IJG jpeg library can read, i.e. normal and
       progressive jpeg’s.

       -b     Display  only  quality  indicator,  suppress  other  information

       -h, --help
              Display short summary of options.

       -V, --version
              Display version number and exit.


       It should be possible to judge pictures stored  in  non-lossy  formats,
       too, since conversion to jpeg may influence the measurement.

       The quality indicator is non-linear, and could be much better.

       The algorithm to calculate the quality was made up in 10 minutes, after
       staring at various histograms.


       This program contains code from the IJG jpeg software.
