colour.difference.delta_E_DIN99

colour.difference.delta_E_DIN99(Lab_1, Lab_2, textiles=False)[source]

Returns the difference \(\Delta E_{DIN99}\) between two given CIE L*a*b* colourspace arrays using DIN99 formula.

Parameters:

  • Lab_2 (array_like) – CIE L*a*b* colourspace array 2.
Returns:

Colour difference \(\Delta E_{DIN99}\).

Return type:

numeric or ndarray
