I'm looking for a method to measure the noise-level of an image.

The noise i want to measure created by cameras with high iso settings. I read about some methods which used Laplace, DCT or Sobel. But how can i use it to get a qualifier?

I know about methods like SNR. But this need a second image as reference. I have only one image.

I do not know a straight answer but there are different types of noises in images. I guess you are looking for a solution which would be the "sum" of every types of noises?

I think method would be noise-kind dependend. Generally speaking your can try to remove noises, diff obtained image with original and measure it characteristic parameters.

okay, thx. I will try a simple box filter for my denoised image. And estimate the noise level with the snr-method.
