The increasing availability of affordable color raster graphics displays has made it important to develop a better understanding of how color can be used effectively in an interactive environment. [] Key MethodWe describe a color matching experiment in which subjects used one of two tablet-based input techniques, interfaced through one of five color models, to interactively match target colors displayed on a CRT. The data collected show small but significant differences between models in the ability of…

New approach to the manipulation of color display images

In the tone rendering adjustment tests, the L component of the Ls(alpha) color space proved to be the most suitable co-ordinate for adjustment with a tone rendering curve.

It is argued that working in HSI space offers an effective method for segmenting scenes in the presence of confounding cues due to shading, transparency, highlights, and shadows and designed and fabricated an analog CMOS VLSI circuit with on-board phototransistor input that computes normalized color and hue.

The RGYB color geometry

The RGYB geometry is based on two recent discoveries about the human visual system, and represents colors as a set of surfaces of colors that vary in chromaticity, each at a different level of brightness.

An experimental investigation in the use of color in computational stereopsis

Experimental results indicate that color information increases performance, communication between color channels during matching is very important, and the overall performance of the opponent model appears to be the best.

Experimental investigation of HSL color model in error diffusion

In order to minimize the processing time and maintain the color palette, simplify the processing of, our research category the available colors into primary color the colors from the photographic

Color Space Identification for Image Display

This paper proposes the identification of the image color space from its colors, and the Gamut of color spaces is estimated by using a collection of images and the imagecolor histogram is compared to the estimated Gamuts.

Model and representation: the effect of visual feedback on human performance in a color picker interface

It is suggested that visual feedback and design of the interface may be a more important factor in improving the usability of a color selection interface than the particular color model used.

Color Picking

The most efficient color picker, which is presently rarely used in popular applications, is much more efficient than the worst one, and it is speculated that this derives from a closer match to the user’s internal representation of color space.

Data-Driven Color Manifolds

This work shows how color selection usability improves by applying 1D or 2D color manifolds that predict the most likely change of color in a specific context, and demonstrates the increase in task performance of color selection in a user study.



Color gamut transform pairs

A set of alternative models of the RGB monitor gamut based on the perceptual variables hue, saturation, and value (V) or brightness (L) are presented and algorithms for transforming between these models are derived.

An inexpensive scheme for calibration of a colour monitor in terms of CIE standard coordinates

The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate the form that a function which transforms video monitor gun voltages into CIE coordinates (XYZ colour space), and to show how the necessary monitor parameters can be measured using little more than a simple light meter.

Color spaces for computer graphics

Several color spaces are presented which are suitable for applications involving user specification of color, along with the defining equations and illustrations, and the use of special color spaces for particular kinds of color computations is discussed.

A human factors study of color notation systems for computer graphics

It was found that users of the natural language based system were significantly more accurate in specifying colors, despite the coarse granularity of that system as compared to the other two.

Color Science, Concepts and Methods. Quantitative Data and Formulas

The authors' aim has been to provide a comprehensive source book of data required by the practical and theoretical worker in the field of colour and they have achieved this aim so successfully that their book is likely to become the standard work on the subject and to remain so for a good many years.

Tablet-based valuators that provide one, two, or three degrees of freedom

This paper describes several logical devices based on the tablet, each particularly suited to control some type of interactive manipulation of 2-D and 3-D objects in real time.

Color Science: Concepts and Methods, Quantitative Data and Formulae, 2nd Edition

Theories and Models of Color Vision and Visual Equivalence and Visual Matching are examined, as well as physical data, which confirm the importance of theseories and models.
