Colour Management of Prints with Variant Gloss

Advanced printing techniques are currently used to incorporate special effects in printouts. There is an increasing interest in the reproduction of material appearances and art work, with the focus on reproducing aspects such as colour, surface texture and gloss variations. However, for material surfaces of which the level of glossiness varies, the colour is often affected due to the applied gloss effect. The effect of the (local) gloss level on the colour is not incorporated in the colour management, which results in a mismatch with respect to the intended colour. We propose a workflow to control the reproduction of colour for the case of using multiple gloss modes in a printing system. Although currently one single ICC profile is used to manage the colour of the printout, our workflow proposes using one ICC profile per gloss level that adapts the colour transformations locally based on the applied gloss level. Our results show an improved reproduction of the colour and smoother colour transitions between gloss levels of prints with variant gloss.
