Color-Space CAD is an interactive image-processing framework that lets users manipulate colors directly in 3D perceptual color space. Unlike traditional 2D color-manipulation tools, which often require multiple iterations, Color-Space CAD allows direct 3D navigation of the solution space. The framework uses graphics hardware to accelerate the computation-intensive mapping operations.
