While personal and community-based image collections grow by the day, the demand for novel photo management capabilities grows with it. Recent research has shown that it is possible to learn the consensus on visual quality measures such as aesthetics with a moderate degree of success. Here, we seek to push this performance to more realistic levels and use it to (a) help select high-quality pictures from collections, and (b) eliminate low-quality ones, introducing appropriate performance metrics in each case. To achieve this, we propose a sequential arrangement of a weighted linear least squares regressor and a naive Bayes' classifier, applied to a set of visual features previously found useful for quality prediction. Experiments on real-world data for these tasks show promising performance, with significant improvements over a previously proposed SVM-based method.
