Research on mid-level image representations has conventionally concentrated relatively obvious attributes and overlooked non-obvious attributes, i.e., characteristics that are not readily observable when images are viewed independently of their context or function. Non-obvious attributes are not necessarily easily nameable, but nonetheless they play a systematic role in people's interpretation of images. Clusters of related non-obvious attributes, called interpretation dimensions, emerge when people are asked to compare images, and provide important insight on aspects of social images that are considered relevant. In contrast to aesthetic or affective approaches to image analysis, non-obvious attributes are not related to the personal perspective of the viewer. Instead, they encode a conventional understanding of the world, which is tacit, rather than explicitly expressed. This paper provides an introduction to the notion of non-obvious image attributes of social images and introduces a procedure for discovering non-obvious attributes using crowdsourcing.
