NAME ^

Image::BoxModel::Color - mini-tutorial of color definition for Image::BoxModel

In short ^

Everywere in Image::BoxModel whre you want to define a color you have the choice between the following styles:

- human-style: pick a name from the long list below

- html-style: use the form # followed by 6 digits or a-f (#ffffff for white, e.g.)

(these two serve my needs, if you would like to see more, consider contributing.)

Html-Style

Use this style for the exact definition of a color. It is quite simple after you understand how it works:

The first charcter is a # to indicate that a html-style color definition will follow.

The next six (there must be exactly 6 of them!*) go into three pairs of characters.

The first pair defines the red channel.

The second pair defines the green channel.

The third pair defines the blue channel.

Each pair is in hexadecimal form and ranges from 0 to ff, which is from 0 to 255 decimal.

The color channels are added by additive mixture. This is the mixture where coloured beams of light meet in one point. Examples: red plus green becomes yellow, red plus blue is pink, red plus green plus blue is white.

This may be a little counterintuitive for folks who are used to painting with pencils on paper, where subtractive mixture applies.

If unsure, use your favourite drawing-program to help you find an appropriate color. The colour-chooser of the GIMP is excellent in my eyes. You can as well check the list below for colors.

*In fact, if you use IM as backend-library, you will be able to use all sorts of different definitions (see link below). This is discouraged because it will not work with the other backends.

Human-Style

Use this style for intuitive definition of a color. Not all imaginable words are present and the definitions may change in the future. In fact, the list is taken from ImageMagick to ensure equal results whatever backend-library you use.

You may find the original list and more explanations here: http://imagemagick.org/script/color.php

(Please consider that as of this writing Image::BoxModel allows all notations if IM is your backend-library, but only knows about the six-digit notation for the others, see * above.)
