The HSV color model, also known as the Hue-Saturation-Value model, is a widely used color representation system in computer graphics and image processing. It is designed to provide a more intuitive and perceptually uniform way of specifying colors compared to other models like RGB or CMYK.
In the HSV model, hue represents the dominant wavelength of light and is measured in degrees on a color wheel. Saturation determines the purity or intensity of the color, ranging from fully saturated to grayscale. Value, also known as brightness, controls the lightness or darkness of the color.
By manipulating these three components, designers and developers can easily create and adjust colors in a way that closely aligns with human perception, making the HSV model a valuable tool in various applications, including graphic design, computer vision, and color selection interfaces.
