Xyz

Xyz is an additive color space based on how the eye intereprets stimulus from light.

Lch is similar to it's cousin Cie-L*ab, except that it's been rearranged in the shape of a sphere which makes it useful for applications like high-end photo editing and retouching images. Read more about it here
