         Hue Saturation Brightness (DTP)

From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  hue, saturation, brightness
      (HSB) A colour model that describes colours in
     terms of hue, saturation, and brightness.
     In the tables below, a hue is a "pure" colour, i.e. one with
     no black or white in it.  A shade is a "dark" colour, i.e. one
     produced by mixing a hue with black.  A tint is a "light"
     colour, i.e. one produced by mixing a hue with white.  A tone
     is a colour produced by mixing a hue with a shade of grey.
     Microsoft Windows colour dialogs, PagePlus, and Paint
     Shop Pro use HSB but call the third dimension "luminosity"
     or "lightness".  It ranges from 0% (black) to 100% (white).  A
     pure hue is 50% luminosity, 100% saturation.
      Colour type   S      L
      Black        Any     0%
      White        Any    100%
      Grey          0%    1-99%
      Hue          100%    50%
      Shade        100%   1-49%
      Tint         100%  51-99%
      Tone         1-99%  1-99%
     Quattro Pro, CorelDraw, and PhotoShop use a variant
     (Quattro Pro calls the third parameter "brightness") in which
     a brightness of 100% can produce white, a pure hue, or
     anything in between, depending on the saturation.
