HWB to HCG(HSG) Converter - Color Space Converter

HWB color space introduction

Also known as the HWB color space.There are 3 channels in total, hue,range from 0 to 360.whiteness,range from 0 to 100.blackness,range from 0 to 100.
Origin: The HWB color space is based on the HSL and HSV models and was proposed by Alvy Ray Smith in 1996 with the aim of simplifying the color selection process.
Primary Names: HWB, representing Hue, Whiteness, and Blackness.
Typically expressed as a triplet, for example: hwb(120, 30%, 20%) represents a green hue with a blend of 30% white and 20% black.
Usage Scope: Primarily used in computer graphics for color picking, especially in web design and other applications that require intuitive color selection.
Additionally, the HWB model was designed to simplify color picking in user interfaces, making the transition from pure color to white or black more intuitive.

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.
