The RGB color model, named so because of the initials of the three additive primary colors, is an additive color model in which red, green and blue light are added to reproduce various colors.
The RGB color model is used in representation and display of images in electronic systems, such as televisions and computers. It is based on human perception of colors. Other alternative representations of color model are:
YIQ: Luminance, Chrominance (used by composite video signals)
HLS: Hue, Luminance, Saturation
HSV: Hue, Saturation, Value
The colorsys module defines functions for conversion of color values between RGB color model and three other coordinate systems. In the YIQ model, the Y value is between 0 and 1, but the I and Q values may be positive or negative. In RGB, HLS and HSV model, the values are all between 0 and 1.
This module provides two functions for each color system to RGB and vice versa.
|rgb_to_yiq()||Convert RGB to YIQ|
|yiq_to_rgb()||Convert YIQ to RGB|
|rgb_to_hls()||Convert RGB to HLS|
|hls_to_rgb()||Convert HLS to RGB|
|rgb_to_hsv()||Convert RGB to HSV|
|hsv_to_rgb()||Convert HSV to RGB|
