# RGB colors

Do you need the color codes in RGB for your web or design work? Here are two useful tools that will allow you to obtain colors in RGB and other colors. color models instantly.

The first of the utilities is a RGB color picker which, just by clicking on the box, will show you a panel with all the shades for you to choose the one you need. The box also allows you to type the color directly in hexadecimal format to preview it.

A little further down you will see the RGB color chart which, by simply passing the mouse cursor over it, will show you the color code corresponding to that shade.

## What is RGB color space

The RGB color model is capable of forming all colors from combinations of red, green and blue colorsThe tones that in English are Red, Green and Blue respectively, so this color space owes its name to the initial of each of the three colors mentioned above.

Each of the forming primary colors used in the RGB model use 8 bitswith values ranging from 0 to 255 according to the binary system. This gives us a total of 256 x 256 x 256 = 16,777,216 different colors.

Below you have a table in which you can see how the 24 bits used to obtain the RGB colors:

 RED[7:0] GREEN[7:0] BLUE[7:0] 23 16 15 8 7 0

To convert from RGB to hexadecimal we have to use the following mathematical formula:

RGB = (R*65536)+(G*256)+B

Being:

• R the color red
• G the color green
• B the color blue

For example, the color white is obtained with the following operation:

Blank = 255*65536+255*256+255 = #FFFFFFFFFF

Blue would look like this:

Blue = 0*65536+0*256+255 = #0000FF

And so on with the tone we want.
