# colour.Lab_to_DIN99#

colour.Lab_to_DIN99(Lab: ArrayLike, k_E: float = 1, k_CH: float = 1, method: Literal['ASTMD2244-07', 'DIN99', 'DIN99b', 'DIN99c', 'DIN99d'] | str = 'DIN99') NDArrayFloat[source]#

Convert from CIE L*a*b* colourspace to DIN99 colourspace or one of the DIN99b, DIN99c, DIN99d refined formulas according to Cui et al. (2002).

Parameters:
• Lab (ArrayLike) – CIE L*a*b* colourspace array.

• k_E (float) – Parametric factor $$K_E$$ used to compensate for texture and other specimen presentation effects.

• k_CH (float) – Parametric factor $$K_{CH}$$ used to compensate for texture and other specimen presentation effects.

• method (Literal['ASTMD2244-07', 'DIN99', 'DIN99b', 'DIN99c', 'DIN99d'] | str) – Computation method to choose between the formula and the refined formulas according to Cui et al. (2002).

Returns:

DIN99 colourspace array.

Return type:

numpy.ndarray
