this is a quick link to a social platform to discuss everything related to colours and palettes.
We recently wrote about measuring the degree of luminosity or lightnerss in a color
In this post we will address how to make an existing color darker or lighter.
When you are defining a color palette for your website, it is sometimes very useful to be able to quickly defining a range of colors that go from the light version to the darkest one.
I found this great tool to do it on-line: http://hexcolortool.com/
While preparing my css templates, I find sometimes that the color I am working on needs a dark background or a light background to enhance readability.
So, how do you find out if the color you have reaches the luminosity threshold?
And an explanation of what lum is, in Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rec._709#Luma_coefficients
