returns a 3D gamut of the color space colspace.

plots the specific color.

plots multiple colors and color spaces.

plots the pixels of image as individual colors.

uses the reference color space refcolspace.

Details and OptionsDetails and Options

  • is typically used to visualize one or several color spaces compared to the visual spectrum. It is also used to visualize one or several such colors in an image.
  • converts and displays the color coordinates in colspace to coordinates in refcolspace color space.
  • Possible colspace values that can also be a ColorSpace option setting are:
  • "Grayscale"GrayLevel
    ColorProfileData[][i]color profile with the specified rendering intent
  • Other possible colspace values:
  • "AdobeRGB"Adobe RGB (1998) color space
    "AppleRGB"Apple RGB color space
    "CIERGB"CIE RGB color space
    "ProPhotoRGB"ProPhoto RGB
    "sRGB"standard sRGB color space
    "WideGamutRGB"large gamut RGB (a.k.a. Adobe Wide Gamut RGB)
  • Possible refcolspace specifications include:
  • "CIE31"CIE 1931 (default)
    "CIE76"CIE 1976
    "XYZ"CIE 1931
    "LAB"CIE 1976
    "LUV"CIE 1976
    "RGB"RGB cube
    "HSB"HSB cube
  • accepts all Graphics3D options with the following additions and changes:
  • AppearanceNoneappearance of the visible spectrum
    AxesTruewhether to draw axes
    AxesLabelAutomaticaxes labels
    BoundaryStyleAutomaticthe style for the boundary of each region
    BoxRatios{1,1,1}bounding 3D box ratios
    FillingStyleAutomaticfilling style for each color space
    MaxPlotPoints2000maximum number of colors or pixels to show
    MeshNonewhether to draw a mesh
    MeshStyleAutomaticthe style for mesh divisions
    PlotLegendsAutomaticlegends for each space
    PlotPointsAutomaticnumber of sample points in each dimension
    PlotStyleAutomaticspecify the style for colors and images
    PlotTheme$PlotThemeoverall theme for the plot
    ViewPoint{1,1.5,-2.}viewing position
    ViewVertical{1,0,0}direction to make vertical
    WhitePointAutomaticwhat white point to show
  • Possible settings for Appearance are:
  • Nonedo not show the visible spectrum
    "VisibleSpectrum"show the curve corresponding to the visible spectrum
  • Typical settings for PlotLegends include:
  • Noneadd no legend
    Automaticuse automatic legending
    "Expressions"use color space name as legend labels
    {lbl1,lbl2,}use for the i^(th) input
    Placed[lspec,]specify placement of legend
