Daltonization is a procedure for adapting colors in an image or a sequence of images for improving the color perception by a color-deficient viewer. In this paper an intelligent/enhanced daltonization method for individuals suffering from protanopia is proposed. The algorithm implements logical image masking in order to modify the colors that are confused and to preserve those colors that are perceived correctly. The proposed method modifies iteratively the parameters for image daltonization after the provision of the initial conditions. The distinctive characteristic of the proposed approach is that when it is combined with a color-checking module, optimum daltonization parameters are effectively identified. Examples are provided in details, as well as screenshots from the algorithm when it is applied in digitized paintings/artworks.
