Why

Because sRGB values are logarithmic they must first be converted to raw linear colour data between before any transformative calculations are done.

You should never transform logarithmic sRGB colour values! Ps if its 0-255 it ain't linear

The following blog post is required reading before working on colour or image processing. http://blog.johnnovak.net/2016/09/21/what-every-coder-should-know-about-gamma/

sRGB/linear conversions from http://entropymine.com/imageworsener/srgbformula/

Useage

This library exports two functions logToLin and linToLog for converting colour values between logarithmic and linear.

logToLin

This function accepts an integer between 0 and 255, it then returns a float between 0 and 1. 188 is the actual half brightness value in logarithmic sRGB. logToLin(188) // 0.5028864580325687

linToLog

This function accepts an float between 0 and 1, it then returns a integer between 0 and 1. linToLog(0.5) // 188
