I am trying to make a new color palette for the Linux Mint Mint-Y GTK theme. I didn’t have much knowledge of colors, at first, but i took the time to read a few things and i even developed my own method to determine the right color values. So i have made this new color palette:
#38A960 Mint 140
There is only one thing i can’t find any answer for. I need to duplicate all these 12 #HEX values and make them slightly less saturated and just a bit darker for the Mint-Y-Dark themes. Because these colors will be placed against a dark background, in this dark theme variant. This background: #404040. We want these 12 colors to be perceived about the same as they are perceived with a white background.
Short story: These colors need a very subtle compensation to look the same when placed on a dark background. Something like, huh, say 10% less saturation and 5% less lightness. Just one question: is there a way to calculate precisely the required adjustments? Thanks.
