Natural language color (NLC) was initially developed as a web-based application and then deployed in one Xerox print driver. NLC changes the image-editing paradigm from the use of curves, sliders, and knobs, to the use of verbal text-based commands such as "make light green much less yellowish". The technology appeals to a common user who has no expert knowledge in color science, and this naturally leads one to think about its use in mobile devices. A prototype GUI design for a language-based color editing on iPhone platform will be presented that uses several of its haptic interfaces (e.g. "slot-machine", shaking, swiping, etc.). A textual interface is provided to select a color to be modified within the image and a direction of change for the modification. A swipe interface is provided to select a magnitude and polarity for the modification. Actions on the textual and swipe interface are converted to natural language commands that are in turn used to derive a color transformation that is applied to relevant portions of the image to yield a modified image. The modifications are displayed in real time to the user.
