A method for color naming and description of color composition in images
Color is one of the main visual cues and has been frequently used in image processing, analysis and retrieval. The extraction of highlevel color descriptors is an increasingly important problem, as these descriptions often provide link to image content. When combined with image segmentation color naming can be used to select objects by color, describe the appearance of the image and even generate semantic annotations. For example, regions labeled as light blue and strong green may represent sky and grass, vivid colors are typically found in man-made objects, and modifiers such as brownish, grayish and dark convey the impression of the atmosphere in the scene. This paper presents a computational model for color categorization, naming and extraction of color composition. In this work we start from the National Bureau of Standards' recommendation for color names [4], and through subjective experiments develop our color vocabulary and syntax. Next, to attach the color name to an arbi...
