HSL to CMYK Converter - Color Space Converter

HSL color space introduction

Also known as the HSL color space.There are 3 channels in total, hue,range from 0 to 360.saturation,range from 0 to 100.lightness,range from 0 to 100.
Origin: HSL stands for Hue, Saturation, and Lightness. It provides an intuitive way to describe colors, aligning closely with how we typically discuss color properties such as hue, saturation, and lightness.
Primary Name: HSL, which includes three color channels: H (Hue), S (Saturation), and L (Lightness).
It's usually represented as a triplet, for instance: hsl(120, 100%, 50%) indicates a pure green color with 100% saturation and 50% lightness.
Usage: HSL is used in computer graphics, image editing, and style design, especially in scenarios where there's a need for intuitive color property adjustments. In CSS, HSL is also used as one of the methods to define colors.
Additionally, it's worth noting that HSL has clear conversion formulas with RGB. While RGB is a commonly used color model in modern display technology, adjusting colors directly in RGB may not be as intuitive as in the HSL space. HSL is similar to HSV (Hue, Saturation, Value), but they differ slightly in how they describe color brightness or luminance.

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.
