Paper Abstract

Digital Still Camera images often have undesired color casts due to unusual illuminant sources. This paper describes a novel color correction technique that uses adaptive segmentation techniques to identify the presence of such casts, estimate their chromatic strength, and alter the image's near-neutral color regions to compensate for the cast. The segmentation method identifies most major objects in the scene and their average color.
