Abstract:
This paper proposes information technology of shadow artifacts removing on colorful digital images of paintings. Shadow artifacts are caused by difference of picture lighting. Shadow edge detection and color correction problems are solved. Results of real images enhancement are presented.

Key words: image enhancement (processing), shadow distortion, color correction, identification.
