About Converting Colors

Converting Colors allows you to convert between 10 different color formats (hex, rgb, cmy, cmyk, hsv, hsl, cielab, cielch, xyz, yxy).

To convert paste a string in one of these color formats, for example "A876A7", into the input field and click on "Convert". The result will be shown in the section "Color Conversions", the following sections will provide you with further details on the color.

Some color formats use the same notation and the conversion will guess your format. As example if you try to convert the string "301°, 30%, 66%" it could be a HSV or HSL color, the conversion will assume HSL in this case.

As this could lead to wrong conversions you can define which format you are passing by wrapping your color string in brackets with the format in front. The search string "HSV(301°, 30%, 66%)" will give you the correct HSV color as there is no need to guess the format. Other examples would be "CIELAB(56, 27.888, -18.402)", "CIELCH(56, 33.412, 326.581)", "YXY(24.0717, 0.3172, 0.2580)" and "CMYK(0.00, 0.30, 0.01, 0.34)".
