I am looking for a way to get RYB complementary colors in software. This means, complementary color pairs I am looking to get would be:
- red - green
- yellow - violet
- blue - orange
However, when inverting an image in RGB mode, you get the calculated RGB opposite, like:
- red - cyan
- yellow - blue
- blue - yellow
For example inverting blue (red 0%, green 0%, blue 100%) gives yellow (red 100%, green 100%, blue 0%). Doing the same calculation in a RYB color system gives me the values I'd like, for example with blue, that would be: orange (red 100%, yellow 100%, blue 0%).
Is there any way to get complementary colors according to a RYB color system in imaging software?
(Answers can be software specific, but probably any technique to do so might be transferable, unless it's a plugin or something the like dealing with the calculation.)
