# I want set of totally distinct shades of QCOlor around 64

• I want set of totally distinct shades of QCOlor around 64

is there any standard set of such colors

• Basically such distinct that ot should repeat the sheds of green for example

• @Qt-Enthusiast Don't know how others see it but I really don't understand what you're asking for? Maybe you have a picture showing what you want to have?

• If you the see the color pallete in
then the colors are not distinct .

I want a distincy colors in this pallete

• @qtEnthusiast
Hi,
Do you want to use different shades of color. Then based on hex value of color, hex value can be set to QColor and can be used.

• No I want a algorithm that gives me different set of colors very different something like this
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/2328339/how-to-generate-n-different-colors-for-any-natural-number-n

• Convert the rectangular RGB space into a spherical one and introduce a metric (if you want), then pick the colors from splitting the unit sphere into a number of parallels and meridians. At least that's what I'd do. The math isn't that complicated you can pull the formulas from wikipedia to try and wrap something up.

• @kshegunov

Is it possible to provide the code

• some pseudo code of rectangles will be done

• @kshegunov

Is it possible to provide the code

Not really, I haven't any code, as I haven't done anything of that sort. It's only an idea you could explore.

• what algortimhs generates this

• @Qt-Enthusiast
I think its a dictionary.
Make a small test program. there is also a table of hex values to use. sample the color from the bitmap. (same offset so not so complex)
Then alter properties (QColor) to fine tune.

Kmeans++ Color Quantization seeding it seems :)

• Hi
Using his table, and some ligher() and darker() calls then they seems pretty distinct ;)

• Can we generate the table with algorithm ?

• @Qt-Enthusiast

Hi.
If you mean algorithm to generate all the colors out of nothing, then no.

• Algorithm means code

• @Qt-Enthusiast

the colors are already code. ?

• Means a pseudo code that generates this table

• @Qt-Enthusiast
Nope. Not that i have seen.
