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.

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.
