What is the HSV Color Model?

The HSV Color model remaps the RGB Color model in a more understanding way for the Human mind.
In the HSV Color model,

  • H represents the Hue, that is the space that each color covered on the color hexagon. In color hexagon, the Red falls at 0 to 60 degrees, Yellow falls at 60 to 120 degrees, Green falls at 120 to 180 degrees, Cyan falls at 180 to 240 degrees, Blue falls at 240 to 300 degrees, and Magenta falls at 300 to 360 degrees.
  • S represents the Saturation, which is the color's purity, ranging from 0 to 100 percent.
  • V represents the Value (Lightness), which is the brightness of the color, ranging from 0 to 100 percent.
Therefore, HSV stands for Hue, Saturation, and Value.

What is the RGB Color Model?

The RGB Color Model stands for Red, Green, and Blue. And these are the primary colors of the light. This color model is an additive because the model light is used to display the colors, which means the more you add, the more you get closer to the white.
Red, Green, and Blue are the primary colors of that model. All the other colors are formed by combining them at different proportions to get diverse colors. According to some studies, each primary color's intensity can vary from 0 to 255, which means for each color, you can produce 256 shades— with three primary colors, resulting in almost 16,777,216 colors.
RGB color model is used in various digital displays like TV and video displays, computer displays, digital cameras, and other light-based display devices.


The RGB Color Model has three dimensions, Red, Green, and Blue. The problem with the RGB Color Model is that it is not designed for creating the colors in codes. For example, to get the yellow color, one knows that an equal amount of Red and Green must be added to get the desired result. But what if the required color code is dark purple. The answer can be complicated because the human mind does not think about the color as a mix of Red, Green, and Blue. Therefore, to get the accurate value of Red, Green, and Blue to get the desired color is tricky. Thus, the artists develop another way to define the color, known as HSV Color Model. That describes the colors in a way that is more understanding as per the human mind.
