There are provided a geometry transfer engine (GTE) 61 and a graphic processing unit (GPU 62) which act in combination as a transforming means for converting three-dimensional image data retrieved from a CD-ROM disk into two-dimensional image data for drawing an image on a two-dimensional display screen, and a frame buffer 63 which serves as a memory having an image data storage area (picture data area) for storage of the image data and at least a color data tables storage area (CLUT area) for storage of multiple color lookup data tables in a two-dimensional arrangement, each color data table including a color data wherein the structure is arranged substantially identical to that of each pixel of data in the image. A greater number of colors are thus facilitated and the data processing is simplified.

Title
Image processing in which the image is divided into image areas with specific color lookup tables for enhanced color resolution
