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:
- and compare them.
Each color spaces use a different set of parameters to describe the colors.
- a greyscale color space only has one parameter which controls the level of brightness going from black to white.
- RGB color space use red, green, and blue as parameters representing the colors of the lights in a display that add together to make a final color.
- CYMK color space with Cyan, Yellow, Magenta and black are the parameters representing the colors of the inks.
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.
