HSL Color Model

The HSL color model, also known as Hue, Saturation, and Lightness, is a popular color representation system used in computer graphics and web design. It provides a more intuitive way to specify colors compared to other models like RGB or CMYK.

The hue component represents the actual color, ranging from 0 to 360 degrees on a color wheel. Saturation determines the intensity or purity of the color, with 0% being grayscale and 100% being fully saturated. The lightness component defines the brightness of the color, with 0% being black and 100% being white.

By adjusting these three parameters, designers can easily create and manipulate a wide range of colors. The HSL model is widely supported in CSS, allowing developers to apply precise color values to elements on web pages.
