Cmy

Cmy is frequenty associated with color printing, and it's determined by the relation of colors cyan, magenta and yellow. Unlike Rgb, cmy is subtractive, meaning that higher values are associated with darker colors rather than light.

Hsl

Hsl is a cylindrical-coordinate representation of the Rgb color model. This representation rearranges the colors in an attempt to be more intuitive and perceptually relevant than the typical Rgb representation. It's frequently used for computer graphics applications like color pickers and image analysis.
