Color - Space

1 - About

A color space determines how a tuple of data values (e.g., an RGB triplet) maps to a well-defined color (and vice-versa).

A color space is a specific organization of colors where you can:

  • define
  • and compare them.

Each color spaces use a different set of parameters to describe the colors.

For example:

Many color spaces can be represented as three-dimensional values (three parameters) but some have more, or fewer dimensions, and some, such as Pantone, cannot be represented in this way at all.

When defining a color space, the usual reference standard is the CIELAB or CIEXYZ color spaces, which were specifically designed to encompass all colors the average human can see.
