Color Models: Hue in HSL

Color Models: Hue in HSL

Colors can be darker or lighter: and this in color terms is called Luminosity. Color can also be saturated (vibrant) or desaturated (neutralized). Desaturation can be done to a lesser extent or more, and when it happens to the maximum extent possible, that’s the same as completely neutralizing the color altogether. Think about converting a colored picture to grayscale and you will understand what may be happening! This property of color is called Saturation. Now beyond Luminosity and Saturation lies the Hue of color. You can have a blue that’s dark or light, and even vibrant or neutralized. But you can also have a green, a red, an orange, a yellow, or any other color with those same attributes. This red, green, yellow, or blue property is nothing else but the Hue of the color.

Explore the role that Hue plays in the world of color.

Text Placeholders vs. Text Boxes in PowerPoint 365 for Mac

Before exploring the concept of differences between text placeholders and text boxes, let us start with these thoughts: Aren't text boxes and text placeholders the same? Are they really different? And why should anyone bother even if they are different? All these are valid questions, and the answers to them form one of the most important foundations in learning to create more structured presentations in PowerPoint.

Color Models: Luminosity in HSL

Color Models: Luminosity in HSL

We explored the HSL color model broadly previously. Now, we will look at Luminosity, one of its three properties. So what is Luminosity? Luminosity is the value that spans from pure black (darkest) to pure white (lightest). Now how does Luminosity influence any color? If we change the Luminosity values to 0 (zero) for a given color, it does not matter what Hue or Saturation values they have; they will all be black! This reasoning is easy to explain using an analogy. In a very dark room, if you switch off the light you will be left with pitch darkness, and any object of any color will appear black. That’s precisely what’s happening here too!

Explore how Luminosity works within the HSL color model.
