In this paper, a multispectral texture model for color and highlight reproduction is considered. The model accurately copies the natural image characteristics to synthesize the multispectral images to represent color. This technique based on multispectral image statistics has been used in photorealistic image coloring. Only the spectrum and gray level image are used as initial information in the coloring algorithm. The model feasibility is shown by color reproduction for a synthetic multispectral image with comparison to color reproduction of an original multispectral image. In addition, the on-line image coloring application based on the model is described.
