Improved hdr image encoding and decoding methods and devices


To allow graders to make optimally looking content of hdr scenes for various rendering displays, we invented an image encoder (202) comprising: an input (240) for a high dynamic range input image (m_hdr); an image grading unit (201) arranged to allow a human color grader to specify a color mapping from a representation (hdr_rep) of the high dynamic range input image defined according to a predefined accuracy, to a low dynamic range image (im_ldr) by means of a human-determined color mapping algorithm, and arranged to output data specifying the color mapping (fi(mp_dh)); and an automatic grading unit (203) arranged to derive a second low dynamic range image (gt_idr) by applying an automatic color mapping algorithm to one of the high dynamic range input image (m_hdr) or the low dynamic range image (im_ldr). We also describe and interesting new saturation processing strategy useful in the newly emerging high dynamic range image handling technology..
