HSL to LABh(hunter-lab,hlab) 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.

LABh(hunter-lab,hlab) color space introduction

Also known as the LABh(hunter-lab,hlab) color space.There are 3 channels in total,lightness,range from 0 to 100.a,range from -128 to 128.b,range from -128 to 128.
Developed by Richard S. Hunter in the 1940s as a color scale based on opponent-color theory. It is an adaptation of the CIE XYZ color space to be more perceptually linear.
Often referred to as Hunter Lab, or Lab Hunter.
Colors in the Hunter Lab color space are expressed through three coordinates: L (for lightness), a (red/green value), and b (blue/yellow value). These are calculated from CIE XYZ using Hunter's specific equations.
Hunter Lab is used in various industries for color matching, quality control, and other applications where a perceptually linear space is beneficial for color difference measurement.
Although similar to CIELAB, the Hunter Lab color space is used less frequently in contemporary applications. However, it remains significant in industries that adopted it early on and continue to rely on its specific color-rendering properties.
