DescriptionA color-slide projection or photograph can be used to determine reactions to an actual scene if the presentation adequately includes most of the elements in the scene. Eight kinds of scenes were subjected to three different types of presentation: (A) viewing. the actual scenes, (B) viewing color slides of the scenes, and (C) viewing color photographs of the scenes. For each scene, responses to each of the three treatments were compared statistically and graphically.
