  • WCS will not be available down-level

    The number of questions we've seen regarding this issue indicates that there is still some confusion out there... So, I'm going to interupt the WCS gamut mapping series to clarify things: WCS will not be available for any pre-Windows Vista OS platforms...
  • Gamut Mapping In WCS, Part 2: the MinCD baseline gamut mapping model

    The WCS Minimum Color Difference (MinCD) baseline gamut mapping model is conceptually the simplest of our gamut mapping algorithms. It corresponds roughly to the ICC colorimetric rendering intents, and like them it comes in two flavors that roughly correspond...
  • Gamut Mapping in WCS, Part 1

    Gamut mapping in WCS is established at color transform creation time, rather than at profile creation time. And, while our baseline gamut mapping methods each implement a different gamut mapping algorithm, there are some operations that are common to...
