Color in Computers—Fundamentals

  • Brand Fortner
  • Theodore E. Meyer

Abstract

In the previous chapter we talked in general about how numbers can be organized and stored in computers. Not much was said about using those numbers for storing colors. In this chapter, that is all we talk about: how do we encode particular colors in computers, how do we store color images in computers, and so on.
