Picking a Colour

In programming you can express a certain colour in three ways: by its HEX value (e.g. “#ff0000“), by its RGB value (“rgb(255,0,0,0)“) or simply by its colour name (e.g. “red“).

Whether it be in HTML or CSS, if you want your website to use a particular colour you have to use one of the three ways above.

There are plenty of good websites that allow you to be specific in your colour choosing.

A very good one to visit is www.color-hex.com
