Title: Correction curve generating method, image processing method, image display unit, and storage medium

Abstract: In an image processing method, an image display unit, and a storage medium, capable of effecting an appropriate color reproduction even under a change in color of external illumination, a desired image processing is applied to inputted image data and thereafter the image data is displayed, an output characteristic for each component in the image display unit and color components ratios of a predetermined external illumination are measured. Then, a correction curve is generated for correcting the output characteristic so as to eliminate a difference in the measured color components ratios of the external illumination, and on the basis of the generated correction curve, an image processing is performed for the inputted image data.
