Color harmony patterns are relationships between coexisting colors where human psycho-perceptual visual pleasantness is the judging criterion. They play pivotal role in visualization, digital imaging and computer graphics. As a reference we assumed Itten model where harmony is expressed in terms of hue. The paper demonstrate investigation on color harmony patterns using clustering techniques.

Our source data was Adobe Kuler database consisting of hundreds of thousands of color palettes prepared for creative purposes. For the color palettes dissimilarity measurement we propose to use Jaccard distance additionally treating colors as the elements of a fuzzy set. Then, in the next step, separate colors are grouped within each group of palettes to specify each scheme of relations. The results are schemes of relationships between color within palettes.

More about this publication?
  • Started in 2002 and merged with the Color and Imaging Conference (CIC) in 2014, CGIV covered a wide range of topics related to colour and visual information, including color science, computational color, color in computer graphics, color reproduction, volor vision/psychophysics, color image quality, color image processing, and multispectral color science. Drawing papers from researchers, scientists, and engineers worldwide, DGIV offered attendees a unique experience to share with colleagues in industry and academic, and on national and international standards committees. Held every year in Europe, DGIV papers were more academic in their focus and had high student participation rates.
