With a lightening fraction of zero, the color is unchanged:
With a lightening fraction of one, the color becomes white:
The default lightening fraction is :
Lighter automatically threads over colors:
Use Lighter to construct ColorFunction for plots:
Use Darker and Lighter values of a particular hue as a color function:
Lighter is a special case of Blend:
Lighter and Darker are not commutative:
Values outside of the 0, 1 range will be clipped:
Some colors may look faded during the lightening:
