Images have always presented a puzzle for perceptual scientists because they serve as visual representations of objects while also being objects themselves. Much effort has gone toward understanding how images represent the three-dimensional properties of objects, and there is now considerable knowledge about the relations between the geometric projections used in image rendering and the perceived shapes of depicted objects . Considerably less effort has focused on how images convey other important object properties such as materials and textures , and although there is a vast literature on image quality that purports to speak to these issues , the premise of this project is that much this work is misguided because it conflates the idea of images as signals with the idea of images as messages.
