RgbToCol {DescTools} | R Documentation |
Converting a RGB-color to a named R-Color means looking for a color in the R-palette, which is nearest to the given RGB-color.
This function uses the minimum of squared distance ("euclidean"
) or the minimum absolute distance ("manhattan"
) as proximity measure.
RgbToLong()
converts a RGB-color to a long integer in numeric format. LongToRGB()
does it the other way round.
RgbToCol(col, method = "rgb", metric = "euclidean")
RgbToLong(col)
LongToRgb(col)
col |
the color in rgb code, say a matrix with the red, green and blue code in the rows. |
method |
character string specifying the color space to be used. Can be |
metric |
character string specifying the metric to be used for calculating distances between the colors.
Available options are |
It may not be clear from the start which method, rgb or hsv, yield the more natural results. Trying and comparing is a recommended strategy. Moreover the shortest numerical distance will not always be the best choice, when comparing the colours visually.
