Abstract

We propose a new method to predict the images on a CRT and a hardcopy of skin color under various illuminants. Spectral reflectance of human skin is analyzed by principal component analysis and it is shown that the spectral reflectance can be estimated by three basis functions. The estimation allows colorimetric color reproduction without colorimetric measurements for each illuminant. The proposed method is verified by several skin color patches taken by a calibrated HDTV camera. The method is also applied to practical facial pattern images.
