What is Hue, saturation, and value?
Often used to mix and create colors. The RGB color model is the most well-known way to do so. If you have ever used a printer, you might be pretty familiar with CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow and key) and also HSV or hue, saturation, and value in the color picker of your graphic software. These all are schemes the describe the color combinations that create the spectrum we all see.
Rather than using primary colors, like the RGB and CMYK, HSV is closer to the colors that we humans perceive. It has major three components; hue, saturation, and value. This describes colors that are the hue or the tint in the terms of their shade that is the saturation or the gray amount and their brightness. Sometimes also referred to as HSB where ‘B’ stands for brightness that is the same as the value or HSI where ‘I’ stands for intensity. Often used in graphics and paint programs.
The color portion of the model expressed as a number from 0 to 360 degrees Where red falls between 0-60 degrees, yellow between 61-120 degrees, green between 121-180 degrees, cyan 181-240 degrees, blue falls between 241-300 degrees and magenta between 301-360 degrees.
The amount of gray in a particular color from 0 to 0-100 percent. Moving this towards 0 the darker gray and more faded effect. There is also saturation that is 0-1 where gray is 0 and 1 is a primary color
Conjunction with saturation and describes the brightness or intensity of the color, which also ranges from 0-100. Where 0 is completely black and 100 is the brightest and reveals the most color.
