Summary: 
A new gloss-extracting method is proposed in this study. A spatial filter with variable resolution is used for the extraction of glossiness. Various spheres and cylinders with curvature radii from 4 to mm are used as the specimens. In all samples, a strong correlation, with a correlation coefficient of more than 0.98, has been observed between psychological glossiness Gph perceived by the human eye and glossiness Gfm extracted by this method. This method is useful for plane specimens as well as spherical and cylindrical ones.
