L*a*b* and RGB values[edit]

can we discuss this or use a different source? that source doesn't provide any explanation whatsoever of its numbers. several of the sources linked from this article have more supportable numbers

OK, I thought L*a*b* and RGB values would be useful, but since I've no better sources, I'll leave it for now. cmɢʟee୯ ͡° ̮د ͡° ੭ 11:29, 25 July 2013 (UTC)

There are at least 3 sources linked in the article which have more trustworthy numbers. But even then, to include them in the article would require explaining a bit of process behind the conversions, etc.: [1] [2] [3]jacobolus (t) 17:17, 6 August 2013 (UTC)


So, where, exactly did the hex colors for the chart come from? It's clear that someone converted them, because the source doesn't show hex values. It's also clear because two of the 'neutral' greys have an unequal amount of blue (squares #19 and 22). Can we get a link to an actual conversion, or a note that these are calculated and do a better job of calculating them? (talk) 00:23, 7 October 2014 (UTC)

Please dive into the details[edit]

Everybody here in wiki refers to bruce lindbloom, but nobody checks the details. Sorry but on Bruce Lindbloom site there are a lot of inconsistent use of 2° and 10° observer. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:02, 24 May 2015 (UTC)
