HunterLab

HunterLab is similar to Cie-L*ab. Both are based on Xyz but HunterLab's color coordinates are based around a square root transformation rather than a cube.

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.
