Color-printed gloss: Relating measurements to perception
In order to assess the print quality, color and gloss are two important factors that should always be considered. In this paper, we investigate the impact of color on gloss using printed color samples varying between low and medium gloss levels. A psychophysical experiment was conducted to relate specular gloss measurements to perception. Results show that second order polynomials describe well this relationship independently of the underlying color. Following the same trend for all colors, the magnitude of perceived gloss decreases with increasing lightness.
