The Hexagon

I've been using this color wheel inspired html color code hexagon back when I would made MySpace layouts and templates. Yeah that long kids lol. I'm a old head after all (and a sexy one if you don't mind my saying so!).


You're probably wondering what's so frigging special about this? Or how is this different from the other color codes options out there??

One thing: It offers an alternative.

When you get into color codes just to find the 6-character code by search engine is a breeze and easy. Then by this time colors like black (#000000) and white (#FFFFFF) become easy to recall. However there will come a day where you won't have the option to enter in the 6-character code and you'll be forced to enter a name like "pink" or "blue" or even better you have to enter the Red, Green, Blue values instead. The RGB values are most likely seen in Paint. If you every go to get a custom color not on the preset of colors, you'll see something similar to this:

Like I said, some are easy to remember like for example for the Color Black instead of inputting #000000 you would in stead put 0, 0, 0 (Red=0, Green=0, Blue=0). However don't think that works for all colors!! The Color White may be defined as #FFFFFF, but the RGB would be 255, 255, 255 (Red=255, Green=255, Blue=255). So any number between 0 to 255 can be used. Many combinations can be created and used.

But why go through the trouble when you've got the hexagon to give you a little cheat so to speak??

I did come across a website, The RGB to Hex Converter, that maybe be of some use. It gives both the color HTML code as well as RGB values. Which I find super and since this is the beginners circle we'll get more into colors later :).

So download and save that awesome hexagon to your computer or bookmark it to your browser so you can always refer back to it ok!!
