Color: Hue in HSL

Created: Monday, August 3, 2015, posted by Geetesh Bajaj at 3:45 am

Colors can be darker or lighter – and this in color terms is called Luminosity. Color can also be saturated (vibrant) or desaturated (neutralized). Desaturation can be done to a lesser extent or more, and when it happens to the maximum extent possible, that’s the same as completely neutralizing the color altogether – think about converting a colored picture to grayscale and you will understand what may be happening! This property of color is called Saturation. Now beyond Luminosity and Saturation lies the Hue of color. You can have a blue that’s dark or light, and even vibrant or neutralized. But you can also have a green, a red, an orange, a yellow, or any other color with those same attributes. This red, green, yellow, or blue property is nothing else but the Hue of the color.

Explore the role that Hue plays in the world of color.
