There are several different possible color spaces, that can be used to store the information used to create an image. The most common is RGB (Red, Green and Blue), which is used by digital cameras, and monitors. There is also CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black) that is used for printing. There are several other additional color spaces such as HSV, LAB and HSL.
