CIE Colorspace Conversions


I'm not sure if this is the right place to probe for interest, but I
figured I'd give it a shot.

Recently, a project I undertook at work required us to convert between
the various CIE color spaces (XYZ, Lab, LCH, Luv, etc.). I looked long
and hard but didn't find any Python library that did this, I was able to
find JavaScript and C-based implementations , but that's about it. For a
good example of the kinds of conversions I am referring to, see:

This is likely only to interest those in the Graphic Communications
industry (notably printers and anyone else having to deal with color
science), but I'm curious to see if anyone out there in the Python
community would have any use for a color conversion library. If I've
missed an existing implementation, feel free to point it my way as well.

I'd love to eventually be able to quickly convert between color spaces
and perform comparisons like Delta E without having to worry about doing
said conversions manually. I'm not too sure this excites anyone else,

I wanted to know the order of implicit conversions and which sort of values allow them.

Let me see if I got this :) 1. I know the rules for type conversions in arithmetic expressions 2. I know that an implicit type conversion is done at assignment, so float x = 1.23; int t = (int) x; is equivalent to int t = x; (could the latter produce a warning on some complier?) 3. I know that implicit conversions take place with function...

Hi all, I am a newbie in C and i want to know what all pointer conversions are "legal" according to ANSI C standard. For Example, int* to char*, some_struct* to char* and so on ..

Hi. I would like to know whether it is possible - without manually reading the raw image stream - to determine the colorspace used in an image as represented by a System.Drawing.Image. I want to be able to detect whether images uses the RGB, CMYK or another color space.

If a class inherits from another class, say Form inherits from control, then I can assign the Form to a variable of type Control without needing an explicit conversion, eg Form1 f = new Form1(); Control c = f; An enum value inherits from int but it doesn't get implicitly converted: HorizontalAlignment h = HorizontalAlignment.Center;

I have an implicit conversion set up in an assembly from a Stream to something else. In C#, it works. In VB it does not. Does VB support implicit conversions?
