HSL to RGB Converter
HSL to RGB Conversion
It is a color code conversion calculator that is used to convert the hue in degrees (˚), saturation and lightness (HSL) to red, green and blue colors (RGB). The saturation and lightness are usually expressed as a percentage on a scale of 0 to 100%. To use the calculator, enter the hue, saturation, and lightness in their blank text fields respectively. Click on the ‘Convert' button to initiate the conversion. This displays the RGB hex code, red, green and blue colors below the two controls. The ‘Reset' button is used when you have new values in HSL or you want to alter values. It erases all data from the calculator with a single click. The bottom panel highlights the color preview of the red, green and blue colors.
Convert 60 degrees Hue, 40% saturation and 70% lightness to RGB.
First, enter the HSL values 60, 40 and 70 in their blank text fields respectively. Click the ‘Convert' button to initiate the conversion. The result will be displayed as;
RGB hex code# - D1D194
Red color (R) – 209
Green color (G) – 209
Blue Color (B) – 148
The bottom panel will also show the color preview of the above RGB values.
Formula used in converting HSL to RGB
When 0 ≤ H < 360 (0 is less than or equal to Hue and less than 360), 0 ≤ S ≤ 1 (0 is less than or equal to saturation which is less than or equal to 1) and 0 ≤ L ≤ 1 (0 is less than or equal to lightness and less than or equal to 1);
C = (1 - |2L - 1|) × S
X = C × (1 - | (H / 60°) mod 2 - 1|)
m = L - C/2
(R, G, B) = ((R'+ m) ×255, (G'+ m) ×255, (B'+ m) ×255)
