! Marc Levoy Newton’s color circle ! previous authors could not move beyond linear scales, because they felt compelled to include black and white as endpoints ! Newton closed the circle by removing black and white, then adding extra-spectral purples not found in the rainbow by mixing red at one end with violet at the other end 3 Peter Paul Rubens and F rançois d'Aguilon (1613) Isaac Newton (1708) (http://www.handprint.com/HP/WCL/color6.html)

! Marc Levoy Cylindrical color spaces (contents of whiteboard) ! given one circular scale and two linear scales, i.e. one angle and two lengths, the logical coordinate system is a cylindrical one ! selection of colors within such a system is easily done using 1D scales for H, S, and L, or 2D surfaces of constant H, S, or L 4

! Marc Levoy Cylindrical color spaces ! a cylinder is easy to understand, but colors near the top and bottom are indistinguishable single cone solves this by compressing top & bottom to a point ! when artists mix “complementary” lights, they expect to get white, but halfway from red to cyan in HSL space is gray HSV pushes the white point down onto the max-S plane painters might prefer an inverted cone, with black on this plane 5 HSL cylinder (wikipedia) HSL double cone HSV single cone

! Marc Levoy Photoshop’s color selector in HSL space (contents of whiteboard) ! the main rectangle in Photoshop’s color selector is a 2D surface of constant hue in cylindrical color space, hence varying saturation and lightness ! the vertical rainbow to its right (in the dialog box) is a circumference along the outside surface of the cylinder, hence a 1D scale of varying hue and constant lightness and saturation 9
