HSL Image Color Extractor

World's Simplest Image Tool

Free online HSL image channels extractor. Just drag and drop your image here and it will automatically show its hue, saturation, and light channels. You can choose to display one, two, or all three color channels on the output screen and optionally convert them to grayscale. Created by engineers from team Browserling.

What Is an HSL Image Color Extractor?

This tool identifies and displays the HSL (Hue, Saturation, Lightness) components of an image. HSL stands for hue, saturation, and lightness, and it's a color model that describes colors based on these three properties. Hue represents the actual color, and it's represented in degrees on a color wheel. For example, 0 degrees corresponds to red, 120 degrees to green, and 240 degrees to blue. Saturation refers to the purity of a color. A color with 100% saturation is fully saturated, while a color with 0% saturation is gray. Lightness indicates the brightness of a color. A color with 100% lightness is white, and a color with 0% lightness is black. When one of these channels is isolated, the image will be displayed with only the channel information. By showing the hue channel, you can view the dominant colors in the image. Displaying the saturation channel allows you to see the intensity of colors in the image. Showing the lightness channel enables you to observe the brightness of the colors in the image. Turning HSL into grayscale tones allows you to view the image in gray tones. Image-abulous!

Show Image's Hues

In this example, we isolate the hue component from the image in the HSL color space. The hue channel reveals which specific colors are used to represent all the objects in the image. In particular, it's now easy to see that the daisies use yellow and orange hues, the vase appears in red, the wall is in blue, and the table exhibits warm orange tones in some areas and cool blue tones in others.

Saturation and Light

This example shows the saturation and light of the image of two seagulls. The saturation image, indicated by the bright red color, displays well-saturated areas (the beak and the bird's eyes) and uses gray tones to represent unsaturated areas. The brightness image, using shades of white and gray, highlights the light and dark areas of the image. (Source: Pexels.)

HSL Scheme in Gray Tones

In this example, we separate the hue, saturation, and light channels from an image of book pages decorated with flowers. Then, we convert the resulting channel images into grayscale tones, allowing us to analyze the images based on their light and dark areas. (Source: Pexels.)
