(#theWorkshop, tasteweb) trying to get randomly generated colors to look right. So I'm using the HSLuv colorspace and.. uh.. are some HSLuv implementations worse than others??
I do not attest that the luminance or saturation of the yellow user is perceptibly the same as the luminance or saturation of the pink user!
Yeah okay I'm looking at https://www.hsluv.org/ , presumably this is standard, at the brighter end of things, yellow hues is generally.. more, than other hues, HSLuv just isn't up to the job.
@cancel So the issue is that it's impossible for there to be a saturated pink with the same lightness as saturated yellow and I'm chasing a purely imaginary color? haha
@faun That pink does exist. But computer displays (or TVs or whatever) that are limited to displaying the sRGB specified range of colors cannot display them.
@faun HSLuv and HPLuv are hard-coded to map to and from sRGB space. If you wanted to map to Display P3 or ITU-R BT.2020 with similar H, S, and L parameters, you'd need to recalculate the HSLuv and HPLuv code (like the constants baked into the source code) with different mappings run through their code calculation script.
