A method of displaying an image on a display panel having a plurality of pixels arranged as rows and columns includes calculating a row correction value corresponding to a pixel position of a received data based on an average luminance of pixels in a pixel row of a sample-grayscale image, calculating a column correction value corresponding to the pixel position of the received data based on an average luminance of pixels in a pixel column of the sample-grayscale image, generating correction data for the received data using a row correction value and a column correction value corresponding to a pixel position of the received data, and converting the correction data to a data voltage to provide a data line of the display panel with the data voltage.. .

Stereoscopic image generating method, stereoscopic image generating device, and display device having same
A luminance gradient calculating unit of a stereoscopic image generating device calculates luminance gradient indicating amount in change of luminance between a pixel of interest and an adjacent pixel, a right eye image generating unit corrects luminance of the pixel with that correction amount of the same sign as the luminance gradient such that the greater the absolute value of luminance gradient or the smaller the distance is the greater the luminance is. The left eye image generating unit performs correction of the luminance of the pixel with a correction amount of the opposite sign of the luminance gradient.
