  • Patent number: 10582090
    Abstract: A color processing apparatus includes a first subtracting unit, a second subtracting unit, and an output unit. The first subtracting unit subtracts color values of CMY color signals corresponding to an achromatic color value from color values of input CMY color signals in accordance with replacement to the achromatic color value. The second subtracting unit subtracts color values of CMY color signals corresponding to a color value of an additional color signal different from the CMY color signals from the color values of the CMY color signals after the subtraction by the first subtracting unit in accordance with replacement to the color value of the additional color signal. The output unit multiplies the color values of the CMY color signals after the subtraction by the second subtracting unit and the color value of the additional color signal by N (N>1) and subsequently outputs the color signals.

  • Patent number: 10397447
    Abstract: An image processing apparatus includes a storage unit in which plural colorimetric values obtained by measuring a target-color image having a glittering characteristic from plural directions are stored for each target color; a color information receiving unit that receives color information for specifying a target color to be printed; a display controller that reads out plural colorimetric values stored corresponding to the target color of the color information from the storage unit and causes the plural colorimetric values to be displayed on a display; a change receiving unit that receives a change of the plural colorimetric values displayed on the display by the display controller; and a converter that converts the plural colorimetric values reflecting the change into color values including a value indicative of an amount of a glittering color material and a value indicative of an amount of a color material other than the glittering color material.

  • Patent number: 10389915
    Abstract: An image processing apparatus includes a memory and an estimation unit. The memory stores a color conversion model representing relations between plural colorimetric values obtained by performing, in plural color measurement directions, a color measurement of plural images formed on a first sheet using plural coloring materials including a luster coloring material, and coloring-material amounts used for the images for which the color measurement is performed and the color measurement directions for which the colorimetric values are obtained. The estimation unit estimates, on the basis of a colorimetric value, of a measurement target image formed on a second sheet of a type different from a type of the first sheet, obtained in a single direction and on the basis of the color conversion model, a colorimetric value, of the measurement target image, obtained in a case of performing a color measurement in a direction other than the single direction.

  • Patent number: 10369746
    Abstract: A three-dimensional data generation device includes a data division unit, a detection unit, an output command unit, and a data correction unit. The data division unit divides sectional shape data on one layer of a shaped object into mark data for shaping a mark for correction of sectional shape data on a different layer to be output as superposed on the one layer and post-removal data obtained by removing the mark data from the sectional shape data on the one layer. The detection unit detects an amount of misregistration of the mark output using the mark data from a position determined in advance. The output command unit commands output using the post-removal data so as to form the one layer of the shaped object together with the mark. The data correction unit corrects the sectional shape data on the different layer using the amount of misregistration of the detected mark.

  • Patent number: 10348935
    Abstract: A color conversion device includes a receiving unit receiving colorimetric values obtained by measuring plural target-color images of different tones from plural directions; a memory storing a color conversion model associating a combination of colorimetric direction and color material amounts of respective colors and actually measured color values; and a converter converting the colorimetric values into color values including values indicative of amounts of glittering color material and other color materials, wherein the converter calculates, for each target-color image, a weighted average of color differences between colorimetric values of the target-color image in colorimetric directions and color values in the colorimetric directions obtained from the model by using preset weighting coefficients and selects a combination of weighting coefficients that makes tone characteristics closest to tone characteristics of the target-color images by changing the weighting coefficients when a combination of color mat
