CMYK to HCG(HSG) Converter - Color Space Converter

CMYK color space introduction

Also known as the CMYK color space.There are 4 channels in total, cyan,commonly referred to as c,range from 0 to 100.magenta,commonly referred to as m,range from 0 to 100.yellow,commonly referred to as y,range from 0 to,commonly referred to as k,range from 0 to 100.
Source: CMYK is derived from the process of color printing. It's the result of the subtractive process, meaning the colors on the original white paper are achieved by subtracting certain colors from white.
Primary name: CMYK, full name being Cyan Magenta Yellow Key, where 'Key' typically refers to Black.
Usage: CMYK is mainly used for color printing, such as in magazines, brochures, posters, etc. It's also employed in graphic design related to printing.
Additionally, it's important to note that CMYK cannot represent all the colors in the RGB color space, especially those very bright ones. This is called a 'color gamut', and different color spaces have different gamuts. Furthermore, Black (K) is introduced in CMYK because pure CMY color mixing typically cannot produce a true black, but rather a deep brown.

HCG(HSG) color space introduction

Also known as the HCG(HSG) color space.There are 3 channels in total,hue,range from 0 to 360.chroma,range from 0 to 100.gray,range from 0 to 100.
The HCG color space incorporates elements from the HSL/HSV color models and provides a direct path to grayscale, addressing the issue of maintaining hue and saturation as colors fade to white or black.
Known as the HCG color space.
Colors are represented by hue (H), chroma (C), and gray (G), allowing for a transition to gray scale as the chroma decreases and the gray increases, enabling the color to fade without losing its hue.
The HCG color space is often used in applications such as data visualization where colors may need to be muted or made pastel while still retaining their color identity.
HCG combines the hue and saturation control of HSL/HSV with the concept of gray scale to provide a more flexible way of color fading.
