Paper Abstract

Increased interest in color management has resulted in more options for the user to choose between for their color management needs. We propose an evaluation process that uses metrics to assess the quality of ICC profiles, specifically for the perceptual rendering intent. The primary objective of the perceptual rendering intent, unlike the media-relative intent, is a preferred reproduction rather than an exact match. Profile vendors commonly quote a CIE ΔE*ab color difference to define the quality of a profile. With the perceptual rendering intent, this may or may not correlate to the preferred reproduction. For this work we compiled a comprehensive list of quality aspects, used to evaluate the perceptual rendering intent of an ICC printer profile. The aspects are used as tools to individually judge the different qualities that define the overall strength of profiles. The proposed workflow uses metrics to assess each aspect and delivers a relative comparison between different printer profile options. The aim of the research is to improve the current methods used to evaluate a printer profile, while reducing the amount of time required.
