In this paper, we propose a new embossing algorithm for color images. The conventional embossing method for color images is performed by first applying the embossing operator independently to each component, i.e. R, G, B of color images and then combine them for making an embossed color image. In the proposed approach, an RGB color image is first converted to an HSI color image and next the embossing operator is applied to I component and finally the resulting components are combined for making an embossed color image. The proposed approach has an excellent advantage that the resulting embossed image maintains the color information of an original image.
