IHS Color Transforms

The plugin IHS_from_RGB converts an RGB (Red, Green, Blue) image to IHS (Intensity, Hue, Saturation) color space. The plugin IHS_to_RGB converts an IHS (Intensity, Hue, Saturation) image back to RGB (Red, Green, Blue) color space. For testing purposes only, the plugin RGB16Mio_Creator generates a synthetic image (4096x4096 pixels) with all RGB color combinations.
