Summary

This chapter describes the principles and methods to improve the rendering of color images and user interfaces on color displays from visual ergonomic and esthetic points of view. Visual ergonomics establishes the basic requirements of providing perceivable and comprehensible information for a human observer on a usable and comfortable (interactive) visual display. Esthetic principles go one step beyond comfort and usability and concentrate on a pleasing appearance delighting and amusing the user visually. One way of enhancing color quality is shifting the actual image colors toward so-called long-term memory colors stored in human memory in connection with certain important objects often seen in the past and appearing on the display. The other way of color quality enhancement is changing the overall color and spatial frequency histograms of the image according to the users. color image preference independent of specific objects.
