COLOR TEMPERATURE - The light spectrum is scientifically described in terms of color temperature, and is measured in degrees Kelvin ( K). Photographers use three standard light color temperatures.
The number of distinct colors that can be represented by a piece of hardware or software. Color depth is sometimes referred to as bit depth because it is directly related to the number of bits used for each pixel.
Color Space - Digital cameras use known color profiles to generate their images. The most common is sRGB or AdobeRGB and this information along with the camera and exposure data is stored in Exif header of the JPEG file.
The process of determining and adjusting the properties of a display device or the colors in an image to ensure that the rendered image is accurate to some standard, usually the human eye.

color noise-A measure of how accurately the color signals are reproduced.
composition-The arrangement of the elements within a scene (main subject, secondary subjects, foreground and background).
Color correction. Changing the relative amounts of color in an image to produce a desired effect, typically a more accurate representation of those colors.
Color Filter Array (CFA)
A mosaic array of color filters placed over the pixel elements of an image sensor to record color information. The Bayer pattern is most commonly used and is comprised of 50% green, 25% red, and 25% blue filters.
Color Conversion, Color Correction
Matching the daylight or Tungsten balance of the film and lights through filtration or, with video, White Balance. Color can also be corrected during printing.
Film is often referred to by the color balance for which it is designed. As a general rule, the higher the number, the greater the blue hues; the smaller the number, the greater red hues.
A palette is the set of available colors. For a given application, the palette may be only a subset of all the colors that can be physically displayed.
