This colour model is user-oriented, being based on the intuitive appeal of the artist's tint, shade and tone. The coordinate system is cylindrical and the HSV model is defined as a cone within this cylinder. 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 value (V) in a range from 0 (black) at the apex to 1.0 (white) at the base of the cone. Saturation (S) is a ratio ranging from 0 on the center line (V axis) to 1 on the triangular sides of the cone.
an abbreviation for hue, saturation and value - A colour model used in some graphics programs. HSV must be translated to another model for colour printing or for forming screen colours.
A color model that describes color in terms of Hue, Saturation, and Value.
hue, saturation, value; HSV color model is also called HSB color model; computing & web acronym
A color model that characterizes colors by Hue, Saturation and Value.
Hue-saturation-value; see hue-saturation-intensity.
Acronym for Hue/Saturation/Value. An additive color system based on the attributes of color (hue), percentage of white (saturation), and value (brightness or intensity).
Hue, Saturation, and Value color model.
(Hue/Saturation/Value) and HSL (Hue/Saturation/Lightness) (or HLS) colour models. “are, for all practical imaging purposes, the same as HSB.
a color-coding scheme that specifies a color in terms of its hue, saturation, and value (or brightness) components. Hue is the color, saturation is the attribute of a color that determines its relative strength and its departure from gray, and value or brightness is its departure from black. See also CMYK, HLS, and RGB.
A non-linear transformation for the RGB color space often used in describing the characteristics of how devices display color. The HSV model is also called HSB (Hue, Saturation, Brightness).
Stands for "Hue, saturation and value" and is just one common way of describing each of the millions of colors which can be displayed. The dintwise color-picker (for borders and for program colors) uses hsv or rgb to get exactly the color you want. The main beauty is you don't have to understand either of them
