Intrinsic: Intrinsic are properties which are not caused by relationships to other objects, e.g. to have a certain age. Intrinsic properties are not to be confused with essential properties, e.g. a certain age is usually not essential for an object. Extrinsic properties are, e.g. to be famous, that is to say, properties which arise from the fact that there are other objects, and these other objects have a relation to the object in question.

intrinsic / extrinsic /inner / outer: The distinction is itself confused: probably color and figures must be called internal to an image.

Sometimes the terms "internal" or "intrinsic" can be dropped in favor of the term "formal". But the formal cannot be only a matter of form. It must include color, and if color, what then? Material?, Size? Texture?
