HSB color space Hue-Saturation-Brightness

HSB/HSV* color dimensions

White is at the center of the top surface (any Hue, 0% Saturation 100% Brightness)

Pure, saturated colors are on the upper rim

(100% Saturation 100% Brightness)

Each color is described by three numbers

for example " H 0 ° , S 61, B 66" describes this color:

180 °

You can define any HSB color numerically using the sliders in the color panel. See page 118.

0 °

Black is at the center of the bottom surface (any Hue,

0% Saturation 0% Brightness)

270 °

However way easier is to use the HSB color wheel See page 108

HSB color space projects each RGB color onto a three-dimensional cylinder space. Each color is defined here by three values: Hue, Saturation and Brightness. Hue is usually given in degrees (0-359 ° ), Saturation and Brightness in percent (0-100) HSB is a remapping of full RGB color space, however it can code only 3,600,000 distinct colors. *HSB color space is often referred to as HSV (Hue-Saturation-Value). This is mainly to avoid confusion with "RGB" color space by not using "B" in the name. HSV and HSB are the same model.

Note that HSL (Hue-Saturation-Luminance) model is very different from HSB/HSV.
