This Demonstration allows you to explore the world of color through the Hue-Saturation-Brightness (HSB) model. The HSB model is more intuitive than Red-Green-Blue (RGB) spaces—hue gives the basic color, saturation determines the amount of this color, and brightness determines its darkness or lightness.


The conversion between HSB and RGB values is fairly complicated.
