Color Transfer between Images
September/October 2001 (vol. 21 no. 5)
pp. 34-41

Color postprocessing is widely applied in computer graphics and photography. Examples include gamma correction and color constancy correction. The authors show how a simple statistical analysis carried out in a carefully chosen color space is used to impose one image's color characteristics upon another. They can correct the color by choosing an appropriate source image and applying its statistics to a target image.
