Paper Abstract

The paper introduces a new approach to tone correction of color images through a spherical color model. Although color changes more smoothly under the spherical model, some colors of the model cannot be displayed in the RGB color cube. The paper demonstrates the disadvantage does not affect the applications of the general techniques of tone correction in the spherical model. The achromatic component defined by the spherical model is separated from a given image with tonal imbalance, and then a tone correction function is performed on the component. The resulting achromatic component is combined with the original chromaticity to produce a tone corrected image. In the spherical color model, tone correction functions can be designed such that the corrected colors are within the RGB color cube for display. Technical requirements of the tone correction functions are discussed, and comparisons are made between the spherical color model and other similar color models including the commonly used HSV and HSL. Empirically, the effects of the general tone correction techniques in the spherical color model are close to those in the HSV color model.
