It is explained on this page. Basically "hard" pushes the values apart, which causes the points to be as far away as they can be. While "k-means" uses clustering, in other words tries to find the center of a division of space, thus not being as extreme as the latter. So basically the difference is like asking: A group of people, in a ...

Draw a rectangle and apply a rainbow gradient. I used 8 colors at about 15% spacing. Then draw 2 rectangles that are half the size of the first rectangle. Make a 100% white to 0% gradient rectangle object and set it to lighten. Make a 100% black to 0% gradient rectangle object and set it to multiply. Then use a clipping mask to make it 3 columns. -- If you ...

Pink is not an exact color definition. But you can get a free or online color contrast analyzer and search a good color that you see as pink. I consider pink is pure RGB red RGB(255,0,0) (or as well #FF0000) mixed with so much white that the saturation is 50% or less and then maybe darkened. That's RGB(X,Y,Y) where X is something from 1 to 255. Minimum 1 ...

This direct screenshot from Wikipedia shows the conversion between Lab and HCL. HCL is only for convenience, it doesn't change the color space (except in case the numbers are limited to sparse integer values) What convenience? For ex. I like to use HCL version because I can imagine the color changes more easily beforehand by adjusting hue and chroma of HCL. ...

Some thoughts based on elementary math: Equation Ax + By+ Cz + D = 0 presents a plane which divides the whole 3D space to 3 parts. The points (x,y,z) which fulfill the equation are together the infinitely large plane. Those points which give Ax + By+ Cz + D > 0 are together all points (= a half of the space) in one side of the plane and the rest of the 3D ...

No there is no way to make illustrator render to 16 bit color. You can add noise on top of your gradient this makes the gradient look more uniform.
