The real key to the color image processing is to get the right colors of the images. In the RGB (Red, Green, Blue) coordinate, the system of (24) bit used to represent the 16 million true colors. The popularity and the modified popularity quantization methods are applied on the SPOT color satellite images, two appropriate set of representation of 16 and 256 colors are used in the quantization. The developed method of the popularity quantization gives better appearances to the processed images compared with the known methods. The modified popularity quanitzation method gives less reduction in satellite image information compared with popularity quantization method.
