  2. Lenna! “Lenna or Lena is the name given to a 512×512 pixel standard test image which has been in use since 1973, and was originally cropped from the centerfold of November 1972 issue of Playboy magazine. … The image is probably the most widely used test image for all sorts of image processing algorithms (such as compression and denoising) and related scientific publications.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lenna
