Abstract

This paper improves a colorization-based image coding using image segmentation and adaptive colorspaces. Recently, various approaches for color image coding based on colorization have been presented. These methods utilize a YCbCr colorspace and transfer the luminance component by a conventional compression method. Then, the chrominance components are approximated from the luminance component using a colorization method. Our method segments a luminance component into small segments called superpixels, and reconstructs the chrominance of each superpixel as a linear combination of its luminance. For chrominance components, we introduce an adaptive color space transform optimized for liner combination. This is because YCbCr colorspace cannot always become a good approximation of the chrominance. In addition, we introduce an automatic selection for the number of superpixel segments from a given quality factor. The simulation with standard images shows that our method performs better result than conventional coding schemes.
