Abstract: - JPEG compression is the most prevalent technique or method for image codecs.But it suffers from blocking artifacts.In this paper a comparison of the perceptual quality of deblocked images based on various quality assessment metric is done. A proposed PSNR including blocking effect factor was used instead of PSNR. Another quality assessment metric SSIM was used which produces results largely in accordance with PSNR –B. We show the simulation results, which prove PSNR-B produces objective judgments .The efficiency of deblocking algorithms were studied..
