 create a number of evenly spaced shades of gray

Parameters

 color - color format recognized by ColorTools number - positive integer; number of colors to return (the default is 5) step - positive number less than 1; amount by which the shades of adjacent colors should differ (the default is 1/(number+1))

Description

 • The command GraySpread generates a list of evenly spaced gray. The input color will be included in the middle of the list.
 • If the input color is not a shade of gray, it will be converted to gray using its luma value.
