This is a simple tool to convert RGB values to Hexadecimal values. This tool is of great use for web designers and developers who need to know the Hexadecimal code for a given color. Hexadecimal codes are the codes that are used in HTML, CSS and other programming languages. They are a system of numbers that range from 0-9 and A-F. These numbers represent the colors on an RGB color wheel.
The difference between RGB and Hex colors is that the first one is the additive color model, while the second one is the subtractive color model. The RGB color model defines colors by their red, green, and blue components. The hexadecimal representation of a given RGB value is six characters long and consists of three pairs of two-digit hexadecimal numbers. The difference between RGB and hexadecimal is the way in which color is measured. In RGB, the light waves are measured on a scale of 0-255. In hexadecimal, the color is measured on a scale of 0-F.
This often causes confusion because it is not possible to have a color on both scales at once. Hexadecimal also has a few features that can offer easier ways of representing colors. One of the benefits is that two values can represent the same color, for example, #FF00FF and #FFFF00 are both equivalent to blue. Another benefit is that it allows for more values to be added to the codes making them much easier to work with in code.
