Nowadays stereophotography is rapidly developing, providing a plenty of sources for stereoimages. The goal of current technology – to provide users with possibility to get high quality 3D anaglyph prints for education and entertainment. To do so it is necessary to agree color characteristics of glasses and printed colors, since errors in color transmission lead to cross-talk interference and ghosting effects. There is no easy way for user to adjust colors of anaglyph in order to coordinate characteristics of glasses and printer.

We propose a technique that allows generating anaglyphs with colors adapted to given glasses and printer colors by means of special color pattern analysis. In addition, our approach takes into account the size of the printed anaglyph image. Resulting printed images have a good quality that is confirmed by user opinion survey. The images contain fewer artifacts and look better in comparison to anaglyphs without adaptation, which are generated in existing software applications. The technique utilizes a low amount of memory and has low computational complexity.
