Lab

Cie-L*ab is defined by lightness and the color-opponent dimensions a and b, which are based on the compressed Xyz color space coordinates. Lab is particularly notable for it's use in delta-e calculations. Read more about it here.

Hsv

Hsv (also known as Hsb) is similar to Hsl. They're both based on cylindrical geometries, but Hsv is based on a "Hexacone" model while Hsl is based on a "Double Hexacone" model. Read more about the differences on wikipedia.

Looking for the code?

All calculations were doing using the open source ColorMine library.

The code used for the Lab and Hsv conversions can be found on Github:

Conversion Example:

var lab = new Lab();
var hsv = lab.To<Hsv>();

Color conversions performed using the open source ColorMine library.
