Considering saliency in a perception inspired gamut reduction algorithm

Gamut reduction transforms the colors of an input image within the range of a target device. A good gamut reduction algorithm will preserve the experience felt by the viewer of the original image. Saliency algorithms predict the image regions where an observer first focuses. Therefore, there exists a connection between both concepts since modifying the saliency of the image will modify the viewer's experience. However, very little attention has been given to relate saliency and gamut mapping. In this paper we propose to modify a recent gamut reduction algorithm proposed by Zamir et al. [33] in order to better respect the saliency of the original image in the reproduced one. Our results show that the proposed approach presents a gamut-mapped image whose saliency map is closer to that of the original image with a minor loss in the accuracy of perceptual reproduction.
