Convert the RGB values to HSV, then change S & V to alter the color 
characteristics while staying with the same hue. Then convert back to 
RGB to use it. If you want functions to do these conversions, let me 
know, but they are also available as part of Monte Goulding's 
ScriptLibrary (I forget the link but I think you can get to it through 
the User Contributions).
