I also found this but it doesnt deal with hsla

One other way if its possible would be to extract the hsla values direct from the image file.
The only program I found only extracts rgba.

' Convert an RGB value into an HLS value.
Private Sub RgbToHls(ByVal R As Double, ByVal G As Double, _
    ByVal B As Double, ByRef H As Double, ByRef L As _
    Double, ByRef S As Double)
Dim max As Double
Dim min As Double
Dim diff As Double
Dim r_dist As Double
Dim g_dist As Double
Dim b_dist As Double

    ' Get the maximum and minimum RGB components.
    max = R
    If max < G Then max = G
    If max < B Then max = B

    min = R
    If min > G Then min = G
    If min > B Then min = B

    diff = max - min
    L = (max + min) / 2
    If Abs(diff) < 0.00001 Then
        S = 0
        H = 0   ' H is really undefined.
    Else
        If L <= 0.5 Then
            S = diff / (max + min)
        Else
            S = diff / (2 - max - min)
        End If

        r_dist = (max - R) / diff
        g_dist = (max - G) / diff
        b_dist = (max - B) / diff

        If R = max Then
            H = b_dist - g_dist
        ElseIf G = max Then
            H = 2 + r_dist - b_dist
        Else
            H = 4 + g_dist - r_dist
        End If

        H = H * 60
        If H < 0 Then H = H + 360
    End If
End Sub

The function you have above should suffice.  The Alpha value for the opacity channel stays the same when converted from argb (or rgba) to hsla.

So an argb value of (.85, 255, 0, 0) will convert to an hsla value of (0, 100%, 50%, .85).  In both color models the alpha transparency remains at .85.
