Returns the Peak Signal-to-Noise Ratio between a and b.

This is intended to be used on signals (or images). Produces a PSNR value for each image in batch.

The last three dimensions of input are expected to be [height, width, depth].


    # Read images from file.
    im1 = tf.decode_png('path/to/im1.png')
    im2 = tf.decode_png('path/to/im2.png')
    # Compute PSNR over tf.uint8 Tensors.
    psnr1 = tf.image.psnr(im1, im2, max_val=255)

    # Compute PSNR over tf.float32 Tensors.
    im1 = tf.image.convert_image_dtype(im1, tf.float32)
    im2 = tf.image.convert_image_dtype(im2, tf.float32)
    psnr2 = tf.image.psnr(im1, im2, max_val=1.0)
    # psnr1 and psnr2 both have type tf.float32 and are almost equal.

a First set of images.
b Second set of images.
max_val The dynamic range of the images (i.e., the difference between the maximum the and minimum allowed values).
name Namespace to embed the computation in.

The scalar PSNR between a and b. The returned tensor has type tf.float32 and shape [batch_size, 1].
