  1. Interesting test. A quick note on some problems I encountered with the test: once I hit a Cloudflare error. I also found I couldn’t just click OK for images I found okay but if I moved the slider around and back to okay then I could and images with a lot of white sky were difficult to judge. And it’s easier to say if an image is awful rather than just bad than it is to say if an image is great or just good.

    If I were running the test… I might have done images next to each other for comparison. But I’m not, so… Looking forward to the results.

    Also interesting road-testing Vivaldi’s new image properties feature with some of the images.

  2. Hi Jeremy,

    Good way to see how I even perceive image quality myself.

    I feel that it had to do with the quality of the subject and to make sure that its background isn’t spilling its colours or turning into Lego bricks.

    I wonder if you might receive a lot of ‘Web Developer’ occupations from here at A List Apart?

    Must’ve gotten lots of promotion through here!

    In a front-end perspective — great website!

    Kind regards,

    Mic Sumner

  3. Image quality is increasingly important for websites and users. However, as the increase in quality means increased capacity. It is a great obstacle to the website.

  5. This is a great idea for a study - but I’m wondering, will the sample include less web-savvy folks (e.g. not ‘A List Apart’ readers)?

  6. Interesting idea. Just a detail: if my rating is exactly in the middle I still need to move the slider, otherwise it will not process my vote. I know it’s probably by design, but I did run into this 2 or 3 times :)
