ChromaticityPlot

ChromaticityPlot[colspace]

plots a 2D slice of the color space colspace.

ChromaticityPlot[color]

plots the specific color.

ChromaticityPlot[{col1,col2,}]

plots multiple colors and color spaces.

ChromaticityPlot[image]

plots the pixels of image as individual colors.

ChromaticityPlot[,refcolspace]

uses the reference color space refcolspace.

Basic Examples  (2)

Chromaticity plot of the sRGB space:

Compare the gamut of two RGB color spaces:

Scope  (7)

Chromaticity diagram of an ICC profile:

Visualize a random list of RGB colors:

Visualize the pixels of an image:

Visualize the pixels of a 3D image:

Specify the reference color space:

Specify the luminance level:

CIE 1976 UCS (uniform chromaticity scale) diagram:

Visualize distribution of an image's pixels as well as a color space:

Options  (72)

Appearance  (5)

By default, a filled visible spectrum is rendered:

Show the boundary of the visible spectrum only:

Use Appearance->None to remove the visible spectrum:

Use PlotStyle as a suboption to specify a custom style:

Display wavelengths on the visible spectrum using the "Wavelengths"->True suboption:

AspectRatio  (3)

By default, ChromaticityPlot determines the height to width ratio from the plot range:

Make the height the same as the width with AspectRatio1:

Make the height half of the width:

AspectRatioFull adjusts the height and width to tightly fit inside other constructs:

Axes  (3)

By default, ChromaticityPlot uses a frame instead of axes:

Use axes instead of a frame:

Turn each axis on individually:

AxesLabel  (3)

Axes are not labeled by default:

Place a label on the y axis:

Specify axes labels:

AxesOrigin  (2)

The position of the axes is determined automatically:

Specify an explicit origin for the axes:

AxesStyle  (4)

Change the style of the axes:

Specify the style of each axis:

Use different styles for the ticks and the axes:

Use different styles for the labels and the axes:

BoundaryStyle  (2)

By default, the boundary style is automatically chosen:

Use a specific style:

Use BoundaryStyle->None to show no boundary:

Specify boundary style for different color spaces:

FillingStyle  (5)

By default, the gamut is not filled:

Fill the gamut:

Filled gamuts of multiple color spaces:

Individually define the filling style for each space:

If the specified list of styles is shorter than the list of color spaces, it is cyclically padded:

Frame  (4)

ChromaticityPlot uses a frame by default:

Use FrameFalse to turn off the frame:

Draw the frame on the left and right edges:

Draw the frame on the left and bottom edges:

FrameLabel  (5)

By default, appropriate labels are displayed for each coordinate:

Place a label along the bottom frame of the chart:

Frame labels are placed on the bottom and left frame edges by default:

Place labels on each of the edges in the frame:

Use a customized style for both labels and frame tick labels:

FrameStyle  (2)

Specify a style for the frame:

Specify style for each frame edge:

FrameTicks  (6)

Frame ticks are placed automatically by default:

By default, the top and right edges have tick marks but no tick labels:

Use All to include tick labels on all edges:

Place tick marks at specific positions:

Draw frame tick marks at the specified positions with specific labels:

Specify the lengths for tick marks as a fraction of the graphics size:

Use different sizes in the positive and negative directions for each tick mark:

Specify a style for each frame tick:

FrameTicksStyle  (3)

By default, the frame ticks and frame tick labels use the same styles as the frame:

Specify an overall style for the ticks, including the labels:

Use a different style for each frame edge:

MaxPlotPoints  (1)

By default, the maximum number of points in the plot is limited:

Show all points:

PlotLegends  (2)

By default, the legends are not shown for one color space:

Show the plot legend:

By default, the legends are shown for gamut comparison:

Turn the legends off:

PlotPoints  (1)

Automatic setting of PlotPoints might not be sufficient for rendering very small regions:

Increase the plot points to see the region:

PlotRange  (3)

By default, the plot range used is sufficient for all the supported color spaces:

The default plot range may be too small for samples from an unbounded space:

Choose a plot range that encompasses everything in the plot:

Choose a custom plot range:

PlotStyle  (1)

By default, each directive or pixel is plotted with its actual color:

Use a custom style:

PlotTheme  (3)

Use a theme with dark background in a high-contrast color scheme:

Change the boundary styles:

Use a monochrome theme:

Ticks  (6)

Ticks are placed automatically on each axis:

Use TicksNone to draw axes without any tick marks:

Place tick marks at the specified positions:

Draw tick marks at the specified positions with specific labels:

Specify the lengths for ticks as a fraction of graphics size:

Use different sizes in the positive and negative directions for each tick:

Specify a style for each tick:

TicksStyle  (4)

By default, the ticks and tick labels use the same styles as the axis:

Specify an overall ticks style, including for tick labels:

Specify a ticks style for each of the axes:

Use a different style for the tick labels and tick marks:

WhitePoint  (4)

By default, the white point is shown:

Turn the white point off:

White points for multiple spaces:

Show a specific white point:

Show all supported daylight white points:

Applications  (2)

Compare built-in CMYK and an imported CMYK color profile:

Visualize colors in the rainbow color scheme:

Properties & Relations  (1)

Adobe RGB was designed to include most of the colors in the printers' gamuts:

Notice that the sRGB space does not include parts of the U.S. Web coated CMYK space at luminance 0.2:
