Color Image Processing and Applications

  title={Color Image Processing and Applications},
  author={Konstantinos N. Plataniotis and Anastasios N. Venetsanopoulos},
This book claims to fill a niche in the provision of textbooks devoted to image processing by being devoted to colour aspects. It is aimed at researchers and practitioners working in the area of colour image processing, particularly graduates in Computer Science and Electrical and Computer Engineering. The book is structured in such a way that, after reading an introductory chapter on colour, readers can work their way through the following four chapters on image processing, or omit them and… 

Color reduction for complex document images

Experimental results prove the method's capability of producing correctly segmented complex color documents where the character elements can be easily extracted as connected components.

Color in Image and Video Processing: Most Recent Trends and Future Research Directions

The most recent trends as well as the state-of-the-art, with a broad survey of the relevant literature, in the main active research areas in color imaging.

Image coloring Techniques and Applications

This thesis presents a new proposal for a system that works on coloring the old movies automatically, and three proposed colorization applications are proposed; Automatic Movie Colorization System, Color Image Encoding System Using HSI Space Embedding System and Color image encoding System Using Morphological Decolorization.

Fast image colourisation using the isolines concept

A novel concept of grayscale image colourisation is introduced, which is based on the idea of isolines, that is straightforward, easy to implement, computationally efficient and it allows a very high colourisation quality to be obtained.

An Adaptive Color Similarity Function for Color Image Segmentation

An interactive, semiautomatic image segmentation method which processes the color information of each pixel as a unit, thus avoiding color information scattering, and has also good performance in gray level and low contrast images.

An Efficient Algorithm based on Modularity Optimization

An awareness to hinge on the tedious arrangements in a homogeneous area based on the histogram of positions of image gradients and link of two regions can be done with the color feature and over-segmentation problem can be meritoriously eluded by creating the comparison matrix.

Color Image Segmentation by Means of a Similarity Function

An interactive, semiautomatic image segmentation method is presented which, unlike most of the existing methods in the published literature, processes the color information of each pixel as a unit,

Optimization based methods for image segmentation and image tone mapping

The tone mapping operator combines the two subproblems in the tone mapping problem, i.e. luminance compression and color rendering, into one general framework and the experimental results show the advantage of the proposed method compared to other recent methods.

Grain Reduction in Scanned Image Sequences under Time Constraints

This thesis is about improving the image quality of image sequences scanned by the film scanner GoldenEye by implementing a few known image enhancement methods and suggesting a few speed up ideas.
