NAME ^

Color::Similarity::HCL - compute color similarity using the HCL color space

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Color::Similarity::HCL qw(distance rgb2hcl distance_hcl);
  # the greater the distance, more different the colors
  my $distance = distance( [ $r1, $g1, $b1 ], [ $r2, $g2, $b2 ] );

DESCRIPTION ^

Computes color similarity using the color space and distance metric defined in the research report:

HCL: a new Color Space for a more Effective Content-based Image Retrieval

FUNCTIONS ^

distance

  my $distance = distance( [ $r1, $g1, $b1 ], [ $r2, $g2, $b2 ] );

Converts the colors to the HCL space and computes their distance.

rgb2hcl

  [ $h, $c, $l ] = rgb2hcl( $r, $g, $b );

Converts between RGB and HCL color spaces.

distance_hcl

  my $distance = distance_hcl( [ $h1, $c1, $l1 ], [ $h2, $c2, $l2 ] );

Computes the distance between two colors in the HCL color space.

SEE ALSO ^

Corrected the RGB -> HCL transformation (see rgb2hcl) as per the research report by the same authors (thanks to David Hoerl for finding the document with the corrected formula).
