This is the example that change RGB(232,160,51) to RGB(11,158,11) with "Hue/Saturation" tool.

I think there is a way,but the result is not correct. Here is what i thought:

1. Change both RGB color to HSL color.

2. The target color value minus orginal color value of HSL

3. Then I adjust the difference with Hue/Saturation tool.

I think my idea would be possible. but i have 2 problems

1. I don't know the RGB value's HSL value, so I directly use below link's HSL value: RGB(232,160,51) equal to HSL (36,80,55). RGB(11,158,11) equal to HSL(120,87,33)

HSL(120,87,33)-HSL (36,80,55)=difference (84,7,-22)

2. The Hue/Saturation tool is not equal to HSL value that i find on web. the Hue vuale is -180 to 180 (total 360=360°), the Saturation value and Lightness value is -100 to 100(total 200). So i make the 200 value to percentage. so HSL(120,87,33)-HSL (36,80,55)=HSL difference (84,7,-22)=Hue/Saturation difference(84,14,-44), I adjust Hue/Saturation difference(84,14,-44), like below picture, but I didn't get what i want. the result color is RGB(21,138,21), It's not the RGB(11,158,11). I guess maybe this web's arithmetic is different to "Hue/Saturation"



is there a way that precisely change color with Hue/Saturation tool ?
