About RGB to Hex

Free RGB to Hex Tool


In this generation of increasing customized software demands as well as software developers, customers generally opt for attractive looking softwares. Adding certain colors to the websites, applications etc attracts more customers so there’s a provision of doing that by using hexadecimal numbers which can be used by developers to make their product more appealing. RGB stands for the colors red, blue and green. This converter allows the developer to incorporate colors like red, magenta, blue, yellow, green, cyan and white into their creation. The programming languages such as JavaScript, CSS, Python etc can use certain hex value to specify certain color while developing a software. The RGB to hex converter takes an input in the form of values for red, green and blue ranging from 0 to 255 and converts them into a hexadecimal string.

A pixel is a small dot like parts of your screen which individually contain 3 bytes of information that means there is one byte allocated for each color. Primarily there are only three colors which is red, blue and green so each color is of one byte that is eight bits of information. A computer deals with machine code or binary code. The intensity of the colors depends upon the values. The value ranges from 0 to 255 where 0 being lowest and 255 being the highest. So if we want the maximum red that a pixel can produce, then the binary number for it would be 11111111 which refers to 255 in decimal and FF in hexadecimal. If we give binary number 00000000 then that means there would be zero red component in the pixel. The same goes for blue and green color that is more the hex value more the color component and lesser the hex value lesser the color component in the pixel. Now let us consider we have maximum values for red and blue and minimum value for green then we get the color magenta. In this way, the numbers can be used in accordance to get any color we want in the wide spectrum.

Similarly, In programming languages we can see that while writing code for adding color, it is done inside a parenthesis as RGB(255,0,0) gives red and hex string as #FF0000, RGB(0,255,0) gives green and hex string as #00FF00, RGB(0,0,255) gives blue and hex string as #0000FF, RGB(0,255,255) gives cyan and has hex string as #00FFFF, RGB(255,255,0) gives yellow and hex string as #FFFF00 , RGB(255,0,255) gives magenta and hex string as #FF00FF, RGB(0,0,0) gives black and hex string as #000000and RGB(255,255,255) gives white color and hex string as #FFFFFF. We don’t always have to use maximum number 0 or minimum number 255 in order to specify a color, we can use random numbers like RGB(255,176,65) which gives color according to the color component in the pixel and it gives hex string as #FFB041. In this way, input is taken in the form of value for red, blue and green and we get output which is a hex string of that color.

Typically when we use RGB to hex converter, at first we can see a slider symbol for three colors red, blue and green individually. We can also see a box which shows a color of what color we have slided to. We can choose the intensity of the colors red, blue, green or we can mix the colors according to our desire. We will also find a convert symbol which will convert the selected color into hex color code which can be used in syntax code while programming to create a software. The syntax can be written as “background color= Hex code”. Using hex code for color while coding makes the code simple, understandable and dynamic.

Hence, RGB to Hex converter is a very important tool for a developer. While creating customized websites or applications for organizations or individual customers, there may be many designs, trademarks, logos or certain trade color of the organization which must be incorporated into the software. This RGB to hex converter allows the developer to create a software which is expected by the customer. The design and the content of the software makes the software unique. Including various color schemes makes an impression to the audience which impacts audience  on how they perceive your brand. A good software for a company can help a company with sales, transactions, recordkeeping etc but a beautiful software attracts people and helps to market the business online. The various color schemes can also be used for creating variation in the software which can make users find the data easily according to preferences. An RGB to Hex converter tool is very important for a developer because more beautiful the software or more the variation, more chances of credibility of the business. Using various colors into the software increases the usability, beautifies the content, and gives certain aesthetics and personality to the software itself.
