Title: TRANSPARENCY EVALUATION DEVICE, TRANSPARENCY EVALUATION METHOD AND TRANSPARENCY EVALUATION PROGRAM
Abstract:
The transparency evaluation device comprises a skin index calculation unit and a transparency evaluation unit. The skin index calculation unit calculates, as a first skin evaluation index, a representative value for the brightness component in an image taken of a subject's skin and/or a representative value for the color component in the image taken and/or the occurrence of minus factors that change the brightness component value or the color component value locally in the image taken, and for a second skin evaluation index, determines the intensity distribution of the brightness component and/or the intensity distribution of the color component in the image taken and calculates the smoothness of changes in the brightness component and/or the smoothness of changes in the color component on the basis of the determined intensity distributions. The transparency evaluation unit evaluates the subject's skin transparency on the basis of a composite index in which the first skin evaluation index and the second skin evaluation index have been combined with each other.
