Color Sorting In PHP: Part 5

Since my last visit to this subject I have been thinking about how to represent a collection of random colors so that it looks sorted and that no information is lost during that process. I quickly realised that I needed to use all three aspects of the color space, which lends itself to generating 3D objects. Indeed, the red, green, blue color space is built around a cube so it can often be represented as a cube.

Color Sorting In PHP: Part 4

2nd January 2019

Following on from by previous post about sorting colors I decided to take another step towards sorting colors by segmenting the data to create a further dimension to the multi-dimensional array.

The array is already split into segments based on the hue of the color, but we can further split this by separating out saturation and value into separate arrays within hue. To do this we set the saturation or value to be a constant and push them into separate arrays.

The last time I looked at sorting colors I had produced a nice band or sorted colors, but to do so I had essentially removed a third of the data from the color information. This meant that there was no white or black colors in the band of sorted colors.

Color Sorting In PHP: Part 2

Following on from my last post about sorting colors I have been thinking about different ways of sorting colors. I have been looking at interfaces that allow people to select colors and they will quite normally have a band of colors that does look nicely sorted. As it turns out this is perfectly possible to do if the colors are normalised to remove light and dark variations of different colors.
