Hi,

Do you know how to save CMYK Jpeg in AS 3 ? They always are saved in RGB for me …

thanks

no idea .. on this..

OMG! DON NOT EVEN USE ANY OF MATH. FUNCTIONS! THEY ARE SLOW AS HELL!

Cool bananas.

Where to the variables s1 and v1 come from? They are used in HSVtoRGB() before being defined or initialized in the code above.

Thanks for pointing out, have updated the code.. got corrupted by wordpress..😦

Coolness! Thanks!

I used your HSVtoRGB code (or its algorithm, at least) to map musical intervals to RGB colors. I’m holding S & V constant, and mapping the width of the interval (in cents) to Hue. This makes colors cycle at the octave, just as musical intervals do. I’ll post the code to my blog (www.igetitmusic.com/blog) later this week. Hopefully, someone will find my code to be as useful as I found yours to be.

Apparently, Flex 4 will contain an HSVtoRGB conversion routine, which demonstrates that you’re targeting coding problems that have broad appeal/demand. That ought to be encouraging.

Thanks again!

The HSVtoRGB function looks still corrupted. There’s a “if (h > 0;” statement, and the “i” variable is never declared or initialized…

Dear Helmut,

Thanks, for correcting the error.. have updated the post

Where is the toRGB function?

Actually, i use ImageMagick lib in PHP to do this.

It’s better for me…

If you do stuff in PHP why are you trolling on an AS3 blog?

Go away troll.

Thanks for noting it updated the entry

public static function toRGB( rgb:uint ):Array

{

var r:uint = rgb >> 16 & 0xFF;

var g:uint = rgb >> 8 & 0xFF;

var b:uint = rgb & 0xFF;

return [r,g,b];

}

Hi Deva,

Can you please send the RGBtoCYMK method as it got corrupted by wordpress..

would like to know what is supposed to be here in between if(b??? 0)–> else

k = g;

if (b 0)

{

Hey man. Great code, thank you generously for sharing. Is there any chance you can upload the class and link to the actual AS file, or possibly throw it in a PasteBin? There is a bit of corruption from WordPress, and a couple of the functions aren’t translating correctly. Even if you could email me the class that would be a huge help.

Appreciate all the work that went into creating this.

amount = ( amount > 1 ) ? 1 : ( amount 1 ) ? 1 : ( alpha > 16 ) & 0xff ) * amount;

there is no operator in between “amount 1”

hi can u please post the RGBToCyMK and viceversa code here …

Thanks in advance.

Have made a public gist to share the same code to avoid problems with WP

Hi,

first of all thanks for the great code.

I got the code from the github but the are some errors.

some of the “-” are “–” and so on.

I was looking for an CMYK to RGB function but your one isn’t working.

I would like to fix it but I don’t know how to calculate RGB from CMYK

Your code:

public static function CMYKtoRGB( c:Number, m:Number, y:Number, k:Number ):Array

{

c = 255 – c;

m = 255 – m;

y = 255 – y;

k = 255 – k;

return [(255 – c) * (255 – k) / 255,

(255 – m) * (255 – k) / 255, (255 – y) * (255 – k) / 255)];

}

}

1. in the end of the return line there is a closing bracket without any opening bracked before.

2. when K = 0 the your rgb is 0,0,0 because of:

k = 255 – k;

and … * (255 – k) => … * 0

This must be wrong because the color becomes bright without k

Do you have any fix for it?

Here is a working funktion.

I changed the values in a range from 0 to 100 because components of CMYK are given in percent.

/**

* RGB from each of the CMYK values to determine a return as an array.

* CMYK values are as follows.

* C – a number between 0 to 100 representing cyan

* M – number between 0 to 100 representing magenta

* Y – number between 0 to 100 representing yellow

* K – number between 0 to 100 representing black

*

**/

public static function CMYKtoRGB( c:Number, m:Number, y:Number, k:Number ):Array

{

m = m/100;

y = y/100;

k = k/100;

var rgb:Array = new Array();

rgb[0] = Math.floor((1 – Math.min(1, c * (1 – k) + k))*255 + 0.5) ;

rgb[1] = Math.floor((1 – Math.min(1, m * (1 – k) + k))*255 + 0.5) ;

rgb[2] = Math.floor((1 – Math.min(1, y * (1 – k) + k))*255 + 0.5) ;

return rgb;

}

I continually get errors for this line…

in the RGBtoHSV

r / = 255; g / = 255; b / = 255;

same here still getting errors around that line. Took the class off of gist in raw format too
