This project contains the stimuli and Excel tables with the ratings and image properties from the study by Maria Grebenkina, Anselm Brachmann, Marco Bertamini, Ali Kaduhm and Christoph Redies (2018) Edge-orientation entropy predicts preference for diverse types of man-made images. Frontiers in Neuroscience 12, 678. doi: 10.3389/fnins.2018.00678. Dr. Marco Bertamini kindly provided the stimuli used in Experiment 1. The stimuli have been published in the study by Bertamini, M., Palumbo, L., Gheorghes, T.N., and Galatsidas, M. (2016). Do observers like curvature or do they dislike angularity? British Journal of Psychology 107, 154-178. doi: 10.1111/bjop.12132. See also his OSF project Dr. Oshin Vartanian, Toronto, kindly provided the stimuli used in Experiment 4. They were published in the study by Vartanian, O., Navarrete, G., Chatterjee, A., Fich, L.B., Leder, H., Modrono, C., Nadal, M., Rostrup, N., and Skov, M. (2013). Impact of contour on aesthetic judgments and approach-avoidance decisions in architecture.

For copyright reasons, the music album covers (Exp. 5) cannot be provided here. Please use the details in the Excel table to retrieve these images from the internet. The other stimuli were generated by Maria Grebenkina (Exp. 2) and Christoph Redies (Exps. 3 and 6).
