That's a good idea. What kind of images would be the most interesting? Basically should that be images, taken with a good digital camera, of a lot of objects of various colors? It could also be images with color gradients, I guess (sunset/rise and such)? Or do you already have such copyleft images at your disposal that you could provide? Indeed if we could gather these for access to anyone as reference (then various software could use them for their own tests), it would be great.
