i extracted h = hsv(:,:,1), s = hsv0(:,:,2), and v= hsv(:,:,3) from(hsv = rgb2hsv();) now i modify h and then i have to convert it back to RGB image.

I mean input of hsv2rgb function are what type?

The input for rgb2hsv is a rgb color vector [r g b] where intensities is between 0 and 1 the the other way it is vice versa. The type is a single or a double matrix.

```a = [1 0 0];     % red
b = rgb2hsv(a);  % [0 1 1], hsv converted
c = hsv2rgb(b)   % [1 0 0], red again
```

If S and V are maxed out, that does not mean it's cyan.

Right sorry about that, I will change it.

Attached you'll find a very interesting demo converting rgb to hsv and lab for nearly all values of rgb. This is an adaptation/extension of something I got from Jeff Mather from the Mathworks imaging team. It really lets you see the "colors" of lab and hsv in different parts of their color space and for different "intensity" levels. As part of it, it does do the RGB to HSV conversion you are asking about. Shown below is one of the 4 figures it creates:
