Three Categories of Color
BRIGHTNESS (value) -
Value is the relative darkness or lightness of a color. This can be
illustrated by the evidence of black and white photography of colored
objects. The different colors will have different tonal values.
Chrome or saturation which indicates the purity of color is known
as the intensity. Colors which are mixed and have ultimate degree of
vividness are said to exhibit 'high intensity'. Two colors may have
same hue value but yet differ in color strength.
Two shades of red. The difference is in the dimension of chrome by which
the degree of color strength or intensity is measured. The stronger
the hue, the greater the saturation or intensity. White and black have
no shades, no saturation, no intensity. Precisely, HUE is the name of
a color. VALUE is the lightness or darkness of a color. INTENSITY is
the strength or purity of a color.
