Recently, hue-preserving color image enhancement methods have been proposed by several researchers. However, the theoretical comparison of the performance of their methods has not been conducted yet. In this paper, we propose a hue-preserving saturation maximization method, and show a relationship of the saturation of enhanced colors by related methods. We also demonstrate the correctness of the relationship experimentally.
