Analysis to the Influence of Rendering Intents on Image Reproduction


Article Preview

Rendering intent is one of the key elements of color management, which has a great influence on image reproduction. Matching principles of four kinds of rendering intents in ICC are elaborated. Based on the color management workflow of ICC, the chromaticity of the color patches are measured with the spectrophotometer. And then the color difference and color gamut volume of the color patches are calculated and analyzed. The experimental results play an instructive role in the choice of rendering intents and the implementation of the color management.
