Convert HEX to CMYK Using C#
Aspose.SVG for .NET API offers a high-speed C# library that you can use for different SVG parsing tasks. One of the API features is easy access to work with several color spaces. The Color class allows you to parse colors (such as RGB, HEX, HSL, HWB, CMYK, NCOL, LCH, OKLCH, LAB, OKLAB) from a string representation and convert them to the desired color space. Colors codes and formats play a crucial role in various fields such as web design, graphic design, photography, art and more. Different tasks may require different color formats, hence the need for color conversion functionality.
Online Color Converter
If you need to convert colors from one color model to another, use our free online tool! It supports various color spaces, including HEX, RGB, CMYK, HSL, LAB, NCOL, XYZ, etc. You simply need to enter the color value for conversion! Click inside the color area to select a color, or enter a color code in the Input text box. You will immediately see other color codes for chosen color in the Output section.
// Parse HEX color from a string var color = Color.FromString("#DEB487"); // Convert HEX to CMYK string cmykColor = color.Convert(ColorModel.Cmyk).ToString(false, false, 3); // Print result to console Console.WriteLine(cmykColor); //result should be: cmyk(0%, 19%, 39%, 13%)
How to convert HEX to CMYK using C#
If you want to use the conversion functions in your product or programmatically convert HEX to CMYK, see the C# code example above. Color conversion can be done with a few lines of code:
- Call the Color.FromString() method and pass the HEX color code as a string. This method parses the color from its string representation and returns a Color instance.
- The Color.Convert(ColorModel.Cmyk) method converts the color from its current color space (HEX) to the CMYK color space.
- The Color.ToString(false, false, 3) method returns a string representation of the color in CMYK color space, with no alpha channel, with percentage, and 3 decimal places.
- The result of the CMYK color value is printed to the console in the format: cmyk(0%,0%,0%,0%).
Please visit our documentation to learn more about using Aspose.SVG API functions and consider C# examples for the most common SVG processing scenarios. In the documentation article How to Change SVG Color , you can view how to change the color of elements and background in SVG images using Aspose.SVG for .NET library. The article SVG Color takes an in-depth look at how SVG text and shapes can be colorized.
Color Converters are free online web applications that allow you to convert colors between different color codes like RGB, HEX, HSL, HSV, HWB, LAB, CMYK, LCH, XYZ, OKLAB, OKLCH, RGBA, HSLA, etc. on the fly. Color Converters are easy-to-use and work on any browser and operating system. You get the result immediately after entering the color code you need to convert.
Aspose.SVG allows you to convert HEX to other color formats in any way - online or programmatically. For example, you can convert HEX in real-time using Online Color Converter that transforms color codes quickly and with high quality. Upload, convert and get the result at once!
You can perform conversions between color models such as RGB, HEX, HSL, HSV, HWB, LAB, CMYK, XYZ, LCH, OKLAB, etc.
A color space is a specific organization of colors that is a collection of information and data that declares how a system or device displays color to a user. The color spaces are closely linked to the methods of describing and defining these colors using their respective color codes. For different tasks, different color codes are preferred. For example, RGB colors are for the web and CMYK colors are for print.
If you check the RGB system, you will see that there are 256 different quantity options for each color - red, green, and blue. So, according to the RGB cube model, the number of colors is 256^3 = 16 777 216. If you like working with color names, there are 147 HTML color names that can be used in HTML5, including 17 standard ones. Using HTML4, you can handle 140 color names, including 16 standard colors. The secondary color in HTML5 is orange.
What is HEX Color?
HEX codes are the most used color codes. This is because they are simple and easy to understand. HEX codes are nothing more than a hexadecimal representation of RGB. The six-digit color number is structured into three groups of two digits which specify the amount of Red, Green, and Blue in the additive color. Each two-digit hex pair can have a value from 00 to FF. This gives over 16 million possible colors. If each of the three groups contains characters, such as #RRGGBB, then they can be written as #RGB. Hexadecimal color values are supported in all browsers.
What is CMYK Color?
CMYK colors are a combination of Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and blacK. This model is known as subtractive, as inks subtract the colors from white. CMYK is one of the most popular color models. The CMYK color model is used in printing inks for paper. This model includes many colors, but the number of colors is limited compared to RGB. CMYK is widely used while creating designs for printing to ensure that the desired colors are accurate and never for style sheets or HTML. CMYK is not supported in HTML, but it is suggested as a new standard in CSS4.
