This color model is defined in the double-cone subset of a cylindrical space. Hue (H) is measured by the angle around the vertical axis, with red at 0 degree, green at 120 degree and so on. The height of the cone represents lightness (L) in a range from 0 (black) at the apex of the first cone to 1.0 (white) at the apex of the second one. Saturation (S) is a ratio ranging from 0 on the center line (V axis) to 1 on the triangular sides of the cones.
Acronym for hue, lightness and saturation of a pixel
a color-coding scheme that specifies a color in terms of its hue, lightness, and saturation components. Hue is the color, lightness is the percentage of white, and saturation is the attribute of a color that determines its relative strength and its departure from gray. Lightness and saturation added to the hue produce a specific shade. See also CMYK, HSV, and RGB.
A color model that characterizes colors by Hue, Llightness and Saturation.
A color space with the three variable of Hue. Lightness. Saturation. See HSB.
Abbreviation for hue, lightness, saturation, one of the color-control options often found in software, for design and page assembly. Also called HVS.
Hue, Light, and Saturation. One of four color models used in the Select Color Window. See also CMY, Grayscale, and RGB.
Hue, Lightness, and Saturation color model.
A non-linear color space (also called HSL or HIS) that defines color using a double hexcone.
Abbreviation for Hue Lightness Saturation. Colour model.
Hue, luminance and saturation: a colour model based on these three co-ordinates of colour, where Hue is the dominant colour, Saturation is colour purity, and Luminance is the light/dark characteristic of the colour.
