I've these two colors: 00BAFF and 009FDA. I'm looking for a tool to compare these two colors.

For instance I want to be able to know the way to pass from the first color to the second with color operations like: how much darken or lighten, how much saturation, how much red, green, blue, ...

  • Can work only with RGB schema or HSL one's
  • No platform restriction
  • I'd prefer a gratis app
  • Do you have any standard color distance in mind? – Franck Dernoncourt Mar 15 '14 at 22:24
  • I didn't know this concept @FranckDernoncourt. My aim is to use these calculated distance values with Less's color functions. So it could be related with their implementation... – Fractaliste Mar 15 '14 at 22:39
  • Converting the colors from RGB to HSL will give you exactly what you want: the difference in L tells you by how much to darken or lighten, S the difference in saturation and H the difference in hue (position on the color wheel). – Yves Daoust Mar 15 '14 at 23:23
