CMYK to YCgCo 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.

YCgCo color space introduction

Also known as the YCgCo color space.There are 3 channels in total,Y,range from 0 to 1.Cg,range from -0.5 to 0.5.Co,range from -0.5 to 0.5.
Origin: The YCgCo color space was designed for digital video processing to provide a simple and reversible color transformation method, serving as an approximation of the YCbCr color space.
Primary Names: YCgCo color space, where 'Y' represents the luminance component, 'Cg' stands for the green difference component, and 'Co' represents the red-blue difference component.
Typically expressed as a triplet, for example: YCgCo(0.5, -0.25, 0.25) represents a color with specific luminance and chromatic differences.
Usage Scope: Mainly used in image coding and digital video processing, for example, it is applied in encoding standards such as JPEG XR and H.264/MPEG-4 AVC.
Additionally, due to the simple conversion process of YCgCo, it supports efficient hardware implementation and can be losslessly transformed back to the RGB format.
