In this article the authors propose a color correction system for images illuminated by multiple light sources. The proposed system can generate an illumination-invariant image under various light sources. Such illumination-invariant image acquisition becomes possible by adopting a user-defined profile connection space (UD-PCS) that generates custom profiles, which can be used to eliminate the effect of directional light sources. The proposed algorithm consists of the following steps: (i) input image capture with minimum of two light sources and reference Qpcard, (ii) estimation of color correction matrix and tone reproductive curves, (iii) modifying International Color Consortium profile tags to generate UD-PCS, and (iv) color mixture map extraction for fusion of input source images. Experiments were carried out on several test images with different light sources in order to prove the utility of the proposed algorithm.

More about this publication?
  • The Journal of Imaging Science and Technology (JIST) is dedicated to the advancement of imaging science knowledge, the practical applications of such knowledge, and how imaging science relates to other fields of study. The pages of this journal are open to reports of new theoretical or experimental results, and to comprehensive reviews. Only original manuscripts that have not been previously published, nor currently submitted for publication elsewhere, should be submitted.

    IS&T's JIST-first publication option allows authors wishing to present their work at conferences, but have a journal citation for their paper, to submit a paper to JIST that follows the same rigorous peer-review vetting and publication process as traditional JIST articles, but with the benefit of a condensed time-to-publication time frame and guaranteed conference presentation slot.

    Please note: For purposes of its Digital Library content, IS&T defines Open Access as papers that will be downloadable in their entirety for free in perpetuity. Copyright restrictions on papers vary; see individual paper for details.
