Gamma Correction

Gamma correction of images is used to optimize the usage of data type depth when encoding an image by taking advantage of the non-linear manner in which humans perceive light and color. This non-linearity must be compensated to achieve correct color reproduction. To do this, luminance of each of the linear red, green, and blue components is reduced to a non-linear form using an inverse transformation. This process is called gamma correction.
