Retinex image processing: Improved fidelity to direct visual observation

Daniel J. Jobson, Zia-ur Rahman, and Glenn A. Woodell


Recorded color images differ from direct human viewing by the lack of dynamic range compression and color constancy. Research is summarized which develops the center/surround retinex concept originated by Edwin Land through a single-scale design to a multi-scale design with color restoration (MSRCR). The MSRCR synthesizes dynamic range compression, color constancy, and color rendition, and, thereby, approaches fidelity to direct observation.
