Colors are made up of three Hex Color digit pairs Red (RR), Green (GG), and Blue (BB) as follows: RRGGBB.
Each Hex Color digit value can range from 0 to 9 and A to F, and each Hex Color digit pair from 00 to FF.
Enter alphabetic letters as upper case or lower case. For example, FF is treated the same as ff, etc.
Some Hex Color examples:
WHITE = FFFFFF, BLACK = 000000, RED = FF0000, GREEN = 00FF00, BLUE = 0000FF, NAVY BLUE = 000080
YELLOW = FFFF00, CYAN = 00FFFF, MAGENTA = FUCHSIA = FF00FF, GOLD = FFD700, ORANGE = FFA500
LIGHT HARD BLUE = 3333FF, DARK HARD GREEN = 00CC00, TURQUOISE = 40E0D0, PINK = FFC0CB
CHOCOLATE = D2691E, BEIGE = F5F5DC, CORAL = FF7F50, FIREBRICK = B22222, VIOLET = EE82EE
To darken a color, reduce FF Hex Color digit pairs to a smaller value.
For example, BLUE = 0000FF, DARKER BLUE = 0000AA or 000088 or 000066.
To lighten a color, add values for the other two Hex Color digit pairs.
For example, LIGHTER BLUES are 6666FF, 8888FF, AAAAFF, CCCCFF, etc.
