Cmyk

Cmyk is similar to the Cmy color space, with the addition of black (k). In theory the black component is not necessary, however this color space is primarily used in color printing where the mixture of cyan, magenta, and yellow result in a brown color rather than black.

We'll be adding support for ICC profiles to this page soon, but it's already available on our color converter page.

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.
