HSL to RGB Converter

HSL (Hue, Saturation, Lightness) and RGB (Red, Green, Blue) are two different color models used in computer graphics and web design.

The HSL color model defines colors in terms of their hue (the color itself), saturation (the intensity of the color), and lightness (the perceived brightness of the color).

The RGB color model defines colors using a combination of red, green, and blue light, where each component can have a value between 0 and 255.

A HSL to RGB converter is a tool that converts a color specified in the HSL color model to the equivalent color in the RGB color model. This conversion can be useful in various applications such as web development and graphic design.

The conversion process involves several steps that take into account the different color spaces and the range of values they use. There are several algorithms and formulas that can be used to perform the conversion, including the one provided below:

H = hue value (0-360)

S = saturation value (0-1)

L = lightness value (0-1)

C = (1 - abs(2*L - 1)) * S

X = C * (1 - abs((H/60) mod 2 - 1))

m = L - C/2

if H < 60:

R, G, B = C, X, 0

elif H < 120:

R, G, B = X, C, 0

elif H < 180:

R, G, B = 0, C, X

elif H < 240:

R, G, B = 0, X, C

elif H < 300:

R, G, B = X, 0, C


R, G, B = C, 0, X

R, G, B = (R+m)*255, (G+m)*255, (B+m)*255

This algorithm takes in the HSL values and converts them to the equivalent RGB value, which can then be used to specify a color in the RGB color model. The resulting RGB values are in the range of 0 to 255, representing the intensity of the red, green, and blue components of the color.
