Summary: 
A new recoloring method to improve visibility of indiscriminable colors for protanopes or deuteranopes is proposed. In the proposed method, yellow-blue components of a color image perceived by protanopes/deuteranopes are adequately modified. Moreover, the gamut mapping is considered to obtain proper output color values in this method.
