The human skin tones are important colours in the colour reproduction of digital photographic images. They are memory colours for which people have distinct preference regardless of how they appear in real life. For preferred colour reproduction, the skin tones should be reproduced according to subject's preferences. The skin colour preferences of different ethnic skin tones judged by observer groups with mixed ethnic backgrounds have been studied in the past. However, they did not answer all questions about skin colour preferences of individual-culture backgrounds and skin colour preferences of cross-culture backgrounds. This study is to investigate the skin colour preference of individual-ethnic backgrounds and the skin colour preference of cross-culture backgrounds. The result is to be used for optimising skin colour reproduction of colour imaging products for different geographical regions

More about this publication?
  • CIC is the premier annual technical gathering for scientists, technologists, and engineers working in the areas of color science and systems, and their application to color imaging. Participants represent disciplines ranging from psychophysics, optical physics, image processing, color science to graphic arts, systems engineering, and hardware and software development. While a broad mix of professional interests is the hallmark of these conferences, the focus is color. CICs traditionally offer two days of short courses followed by three days of technical sessions that include three keynotes, an evening lecture, a vibrant interactive (poster) papers session, and workshops. An endearing symbol of the meeting is the Cactus Award, given each year to the author(s) of the best interactive paper; there are also Best Paper and Best Student Paper awards.
