Paper Abstract

Digital processing of black and white images has received most attention during the last 25 years, and has led to various algorithms for the enhancement, smoothing, and zooming of images. Due to the decreasing cost and increasing availability of color image acquisition and display equipment along with the computing systems of higher performance, it is expected that the digital processing of color images will rapidly grow in demand. In this paper we review our experiences with the processing of color images. In particular, algorithms for the contrast enhancement, smoothing and zooming of color images are investigated. The effects of applying these methods in color coordinates other than RGB are examined and considerations with respect to performance, time efficiency and compatibility with some popular algorithms developed for monochrome images are discussed.
