A new image appearance model, designated as iCAM06, has been developed for the applications of high-dynamic-range (HDR) image rendering and color image appearance prediction. The iCAM06 model, based on the iCAM framework, incorporates the spatial processing models in the human visual system for contrast enhancement, photoreceptor light adaptation functions that enhance local details in highlights and shadows, and functions that predict a wide range of color appearance phenomena. This paper reviews the concepts of HDR imaging and image appearance modeling, presents the specific implementation framework of iCAM06 for HDR image rendering, and provides a number of examples of the use of iCAM06 in HDR rendering and color appearance phenomena prediction.
