Visual Color Techniques used on www.COLORCUBE.com
Although color is sometimes simple, we often need complex ways to describe it. As you have found out, the deeper we discuss color, the more intricate it becomes. This article outlines the use of Special Analysis and False Coloring, which are both a part of the Color Analyser. These are fun, but technical ways to enhance your visual experience.
Special Color Analysis emphasizes certain image areas to the viewer. As explained below, these areas are exaggerated to augment the visual effect that is being talked about. Hopefully, this makes sense in the following diagrams. If not, feel free to write us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Terms are explained in the:
This image features constant saturation. All of the colors are equally saturated (semi-pure). We analyse this image in terms of hue, value, saturation, and chroma to prove this.
This image exaggerates the hues of each square patch. The effect is a way of increasing the distinctness of each of the colors.
In terms of lightness, this image is fairly uniform. There are not too many radical differences of value although we can detect slight variances shown here.
|False coloring - Value
Place your cursor over top of this image and reveal the false color image. Overall, this image is quite dark as indicated by the "dark blue" false color reading. This readout also reveals that the value of the image is fairly uniform.
The total uniformity of saturation is not a surprise. The solid color means that there is similar saturation across the whole image.
|False coloring -
Place your cursor over this image and see that the saturation is indeed equal. There isn't a big difference in the purples you see on this false color readout. That means that the saturation on this image is very close throughout the entire image.
In terms of chromaticity, this image is fairly uniform and not very chromatic. In fact it is almost monochromatic meaning that there is almost a single chroma throughout the whole image.
|False coloring - Chroma
Once again, moving your cursor over this image indicates that the Chroma of this image is uniform. The greenish color means that the chromaticity of this image is mid-range.
