In this paper, we address a specific image classification task, i.e. to group images according to whether they were taken by photographers or home users. Firstly, a set of low-level features explicitly related to such high-level semantic concept are investigated together with a set of general-purpose low-level features. Next, two different schemes are proposed to find out those most discriminative features and feed them to suitable classifiers: one resorts to boosting to perform feature selection and classifier training simultaneously; the other makes use of the information of the label by Principle Component Analysis for feature reextraction and feature de-correlation; followed by Maximum Marginal Diversity for feature selection and Bayesian classifier or Support Vector Machine for classification. In addition, we show an application in No-Reference holistic quality assessment as a natural extension of such image classification. Experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness of our methods.
