The explosive growth of digital photography has introduced a new population of non-technical users to the joy of color adjustment in digital images. Color adjustment is often frustrating and confusing to many of these users. However, while such users can be confounded by user interfaces for color adjustment tasks, they are universally capable of verbally describing the color changes they would like to make. The technology described in this paper is a set of mappings between a user's verbal description of a color change and the underlying algorithms needed to effect that change.
