Black point compensation is a widely used feature when using the relative colorimetric intent to transform images. This procedure was first implemented in Adobe Photoshop® in the late 1990's. This implementation is described in “Adobe Systems' Implementation of Black Point Compensation” dated 2006 and available on the Adobe website. The International Color Consortium (ICC) has recently created an updated description of this algorithm to allow black point compensation to be used in a consistent manner across applications and to provide a close match to results obtained in Photoshop with the Adobe color management module (CMM). The new document includes corrections that weren't addressed in the original Adobe paper. A number of tests have been conducted in order to check the suitability and conformance of the revised algorithm and description. In this paper, a summary of the test implementation and the checking done so far will be presented.

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.
