           Summary: Need support for adjusting in HSV and HSL colorspaces

        AssignedTo: digikam-devel kde org
        ReportedBy: d.h.j.takken xs4all nl

The Adjust Curves plugin would be immensely more powerful when you can apply the curve on individual channels in the HSV and HSL color spaces. So, apart from R, G and B, there should be four additional channels: H, S, V and L. 

Having both L and V is a key feature here, because HSL reduces saturation as you darken the image, while HSV increases saturation as you darken the image. In case you have a bright washed-out sky that needs adjusting, you adjust the V channel in HSV space. In case you have a dark lifeless foreground, you adjust the L channel in HSL space.

Having both a color space dropdown menu and a channel dropdown menu would be even better.
