The researcher was the chief editor of this book which analyses the problems of device-independent reproduction of colour, especially in photo-realistic colour images, and outlines the different solutions available. Particular attention is paid to the capabilities of the human visual system, the characterisation of colour imaging devices, and the state of the art in commercial colour management systems. It summarises research findings and presents new scholarly insights into the evolution and capabilities of colour management systems.
Since 1990 there has been a phenomenal growth in colour imaging facilities for desktop computers. This has been evident not only in colour monitors and graphic user interfaces, but also in peripheral devices such as colour ink-jet printers and digital cameras. The ability to store and access digital colour images was greatly enhanced through the availability of CD-ROM drives and Internet connections in all new PCs.
The problem for users and system developers alike is how to achieve good quality image reproduction, with controllable, repeatable and consistent colour across a wide range of input and output devices. How do viewing conditions affect the appearance of colour on a print or on a display? How can someone purchasing an item from an on-line catalogue, for example, be sure that the colour will be correct?
