The popularity of digital photography has changed the way that images are taken, processed, and stored. This has created a demand for systems that can evaluate the aesthetic quality of images. Applications that auto-assess image aesthetic quality and modify images to raise their aesthetic quality are widely available, but applications that automatically select aesthetic images from a given image collection are limited. The goal of this project is to create a portable application that can recommend user-given images from a given image collection, using criteria learned from user preferences. We train a Support Vector Machine on seven extracted image features. This system achieves a correct prediction rate of 70 % on a public image dataset. The use of additional or improved features should yield increased prediction rates.
