HEX to OKHSL Converter - Color Space Converter

HEX color space introduction

Also known as the HEX color space.
Source: Hexadecimal color codes originated from early computer graphic design, where there was a need for a concise way to represent colors. Since each RGB channel can have 256 possible values (ranging from 0 to 255), they can be represented as a two-digit hexadecimal number.
Primary name: Hexadecimal color code
It is represented using 6 hexadecimal characters, typically prefixed with '#'. For instance, red can be represented as #FF0000; the first two characters represent the red channel, the middle two represent the green channel, and the last two represent the blue channel. Occasionally, there might be 8 characters where the first two represent transparency (alpha channel), but this is not standard.
Usage: Mainly used in web design and CSS style definitions, but also in other scenarios where a quick and concise representation of color is required.
Pros: Hexadecimal color codes offer a compact representation of colors, making it very suitable for web and coding environments. Cons: To the general public, hexadecimal codes might not be as intuitive as other methods. For instance, seeing #FFA07A might not immediately suggest the color light salmon to most people.

OKHSL color space introduction

Also known as the OKHSL color space.There are 3 channels in total,H,range from 0 to 360.S,range from 0 to 1.L,range from 0 to 1.
OKHSL is a color space designed by Björn Ottosson, derived from the OKLab color space. It is an HSL-like (Hue, Saturation, Lightness) model that is more perceptually uniform than traditional HSL color spaces.
OKHSL color space.
In the OKHSL color space, colors are represented by Hue (H), Saturation (S), and Lightness (L), offering a more accurate representation of human color perception differences.
OKHSL is primarily used in applications requiring perceptual uniformity and intuitive color adjustments, such as image processing and user interface design.
Due to its perceptual uniformity, OKHSL is more intuitive and consistent for color adjustments, particularly suited for graphic design and user interface layouts.
