A large variety of approaches are used for processing digital images. These approaches tend to originate in different disciplines, and are usually developed for specific applications. For example, substantial work has gone into the reconstruction of scenes from spatially sampled data, and into colorimetric reproduction models. This work can be usefully applied to the processing of digital photographs (still pictorial images), but does not represent a complete solution to the pictorial processing problem. A number of factors must be considered, factors that may not have been significant to the application for which the original processing approach was developed. Some of these factors have been discussed elsewhere, and will not be listed here. The purpose of this paper is to suggest a comprehensive strategy for the digital processing of still pictorial images.
