Saturation

Saturation represents how pure a colour is. It is the amount or strength of the colour. Saturation is measured as a percentage from 0% to 100%. If a colour has a saturation of 0% then the colour will contain no hue and would appear grey. On the other hand, if the saturation of a colour is 100% then the colour will appear fully saturated.
