    This paper proposes a method for improving saturation in the context of hue-preserving color image enhancement. The proposed method handles colors in an RGB color space, which has the form of a cube, and enhances the contrast of a given image by histogram manipulation, such as histogram equalization and histogram specification, of the intensity image. Then, the color corresponding to a target intensity is determined in a hue-preserving manner, where a gamut problem should be taken into account. We first project any color onto a surface in the RGB color space, which bisects the RGB color cube, to increase the saturation without a gamut problem. Then, we adjust the intensity of the saturation-enhanced color to the target intensity given by the histogram manipulation. The experimental results demonstrate that the proposed method achieves higher saturation than that given by related methods for hue-preserving color image enhancement.
