Abstract

A perceptual study was conducted to enhance colour image quality in terms of naturalness and preference using perceptual scales of saturation and vividness. Saturation scale has been extensively used for this purpose while vividness has been little used. We used perceptual scales of a recently developed colour appearance model based on Jzazbz uniform colour space. A two-fold aim of the study was (i) to test performance of recently developed perceptual scales of saturation and vividness compared with previously used hypothetical models and (ii) to compare performance and chose one of saturation and vividness scales for colour image enhancement in future. Test images were first transformed to Jzazbz colour space and their saturation and vividness were then decreased or increased to obtain 6 different variants of the image. Categorical judgment method was used to judge preference and naturalness of different variants of the test images and results are reported.
