This HEX to HSV converter is a quick tool to help you find the perfect shades in HSV. You can easily transform hexadecimal (HEX) color values into their corresponding hue, saturation, and value (HSV) components to enhance image processing and graphic design projects.

## How to Convert HEX to HSV

Converting a hexadecimal color code to HSV involves several steps as discussed below:

### Convert HEX to RGB

Hexadecimal | Decimal |

0 | 0 |

1 | 1 |

2 | 2 |

3 | 3 |

4 | 4 |

5 | 5 |

6 | 6 |

7 | 7 |

8 | 8 |

9 | 9 |

A | 10 |

B | 11 |

C | 12 |

D | 13 |

E | 14 |

F | 15 |

- Divide the hexadecimal code into three pairs of two digits.
- Convert each pair into its decimal equivalent.
- These three decimal values represent the RGB values.

*For Example:*

Let's say, the hexadecimal code #00FF00 is divided into three pairs of two digits: 00, FF, and 00.

Converting each pair into its decimal equivalent:

- 00 in hexadecimal is equivalent to (0 * 16) + 0 = 0 in decimal.
- FF in hexadecimal is equivalent to (15 * 16) + 15 = 255 in decimal.
- 00 in hexadecimal is equivalent to (0 * 16) + 0 = 0 in decimal.

Therefore, the RGB values are (0, 255, 0).

### Convert RGB to Normalized RGB

- Divide each RGB value by 255 to get the normalized RGB values between 0 and 1.

**Interpreting Formula**

Normalize each RGB value by dividing it by 255:

- R* = 0 / 255 = 0
- G* = 255 / 255 = 1
- B* = 0 / 255 = 0

Normalized RGB values: (0, 1, 0)

### Calculate the Value (V)

- The Value (V) is the maximum of the three normalized RGB values. It's the largest of the normalized RGB values.

**Interpreting Formula**

V = Maximum of the normalized RGB values = 1

### Calculate the Saturation (S)

Find the minimum of the three normalized RGB values.

- If the Value (V) is 0, then Saturation (S) = 0.
- Otherwise, Saturation (S) = (V - Minimum) / V.

**Interpreting Formula**

Since V is not 0, we'll find the minimum of the normalized RGB values:

Minimum = 0

S = (V - Minimum) / V = (1 - 0) / 1 = 1

### Calculate the Hue (H)

If the Saturation (S) is 0, then the Hue (H) is undefined, and it's conventionally set to 0.

Otherwise, use the following formulas to calculate the Hue (H):

**If the maximum is red (R):**

Calculate H = (G - B) / (V - min(R, G, B))

**If the maximum is green (G):**

Calculate H = (B - R) / (V - min(R, G, B)) + 2

**If the maximum is blue (B):**

Calculate H = (R - G) / (V - min(R, G, B)) + 4

After calculating the initial H, convert it to degrees by multiplying by 60. If the value is negative, add 360 to it.

**Interpreting Formula**

The maximum is green (G), so we'll use the relevant formula:

H = (0 - 0) / (1 - min(0, 1, 0)) + 2

H = 0 / (1 - 0) + 2

H = 0 + 2 = 2

Convert H to degrees by multiplying by 60

H * 60 = 2 * 60 = 120

Since the result is not negative, we don't need to add 360.

**The resulting HSV values will be as follows:**

**Hue (H):**A value between 0 and 360, representing the color's position on the color wheel, which from the example is 120°.**Saturation (S):**A value between 0 and 1, representing the intensity or purity of the color, which from the example is 1.**Value (V):**A value between 0 and 1, representing the brightness of the color, which from the example is 1.

So, for the color code #00FF00 (pure green), the HSV breakdown is approximately Hue 120°, Saturation 100%, and Value 100%.
