Abstract: Advances in color constancy computation under a signal illumination is one of the most popular topics in the computer vision and machine learning.The effect of image automatic white balancing and other applications is directly affected by the reasonableness of the algorithm.Currently,the existing methods on color constancy methods are various.This paper divided color constancy into the unsupervised,the supervised,the algorithms fusion and color invariant description.This paper highlighted four typical color constancy computation ways and analyzed their advantages and disadvantages respectively .Finally,we discussed the evaluation methods and trends of color constancy computation simply.

Key words: Color constancy,Illuminate estimation,Color invariant descriptor
