RGB Triplets

RGB Triplets

RGB triplets code for a color. They are a six digit number in hexadecimal form.
Each two digits represent a color:

The first two represent Red. --> R
The next two represent Green. --> G
The last two represent Blue. --> B

The higher the number for the color, the more it is shown, and the brighter it is. For example, #FF0000 would be bright red, while #660000 would be a really deep, dark red. What if you wanted to make your color lighter, say, pink? You would add some green and blue to lighten it. Just don't add more than you have red, or you'll get greenish-blue.
If all the colors are equal, you'll get a shade of gray. So #FFFFFF would be a really bright gray (white), and #000000 would be a really dark gray (black).

Don't really understand any of this? Check out BigNoseBird's page about COLORS.
They also have a Color Chart.

The Hexadecimal System

The hexadecimal number system has sixteen digits (0 - F), rather than ten digits (0 - 9) like the decimal system we normally use. Therefore a one in the "ten's" place now represents sixteen. 10 in hexadecimal is the same as saying 16 in decimal, and F stands for fifteen. Most of the time, the three colors' numbers are written separately in decimal form, and can take values from 0 to 255. In the hexadecimal system, this would correspond to 0 - FF.

Converting from decimal to hexadecimal:

Be sure to convert each color by itself.

Now convert the next color.

Once you have all three numbers converted, write them one right after the other in the order Red, Green, Blue. This is your RGB triplet.
