Color quantization of images

  title={Color quantization of images},
  author={Michael T. Orchard and Charles A. Bouman},
  journal={IEEE Trans. Signal Processing},
1 Many image display devices allow only a limited number of colors to be simultaneously displayed. Usually, this set of available colors, called a color palette, may be selected by a user from a wide variety of available colors. Such device restrictions make it particularly difficult to display natural color images since these images usually contain a wide range of colors which must then be quantized by a palette with limited size. This color quantization problem is considered in two parts: the… CONTINUE READING
