  abstract =     "We combine a method for designing composite image
                 filters with interactive genetic programming (IGP).
                 Human subjective tests are used to comparatively
                 evaluate the IGP-based filter design method to a manual
                 filter design method and the multi-stage filtering
                 feature of a software photo-retouching program. The
                 composite image filter has a tree structure, with its
                 nodes consisting of multiple simple image filters,
                 arithmetic operators, arithmetic functions, constant
                 values, and the pixel value of the input image. Genetic
                 programming (GP) optimises the tree structure based on
                 the visual inspection of the IGP users, i.e. filter
                 designers. Ten filter designers design composite
                 filters using three methods: an IGP-based design
                 method, a manual-based design method, and using the
                 photo-retouching features of a commercial software
                 program to time-sequentially apply ready-made filters.
                 The designers make filters that output images
                 corresponding to the given design concepts - relaxed
                 and violent - based on their visual inspection. Twenty
                 subjects compare the obtained images in pairs and
                 evaluate which image is closer to achieving the give
                 design concept. Wilcoxon signed-rank test demonstrates
                 that the IGP-base filter design method can produce
                 filters that create images with impressions that are
                 closer to the given design concept than the other two
