A model of natural texture based on a structural component which uses affine coordinate transformations and a stochastic residual component is presented. It is argued that the selection of an appropriate analysis scale can be formulated in terms of a trade-off between the rate at which parameters are generated and the distortion resulting from the approximation by the structural component. An efficient algorithm for identifying the parameters of the structural model is described and its utility demonstrated on a number of synthetic and natural textures.
