   Colour Explorer Intro   

The Colour Explorer let's you see the relationship between the RGB and HSB color models. If you've gotten this far I'm sure you know the RGB model - HSB stands for Hue/Saturation/Brightness and it's another color model that is closer to the way artists use colors. Color models are covered in all text books (e.g. the classic Computer Graphics : Principles and Practice... by Foley et. al.). The typical color chooser widget only lets you use one of the models - what's unique about this one is that it shows both at the same time.

The applet make extensive use of java.awt.Color esp getHSBColor(), HSBtoRGB() and RGBtoHSB().

So go ahead and have funtry it out.
