RGB to HEX Converter
How does this RGB to HEX converter work?
Converting an RGB color code to HEX format online is now super easy. Our RGB to HEX converter takes input in the form of RGB values and then converts the RGB codes to a hexadecimal code that can be used in web design and web development (for example HTML & CSS coding). As you enter any RGB color value, the HEX value is displayed immediately, sol you don’t even need to hit the Convert button. You can also use the RGB sliders to set the initial R, G, and B values.
What is RGB color code?
RGB code is based on the additive RGB color model in which Red, Green, and Blue light are added together to reproduce almost any color. RGB color code consists of three decimal numbers ranging from 0 to 255. A typical RGB color code looks like this: (123, 45, 0)
What is HEX color code?
RGB values are in decimal number system format and HEX color values are in hexadecimal number system format so if you want to convert an RGB color code to HEX color code, you should be familiar with the decimal to hexadecimal conversion.
The hexadecimal digits are 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, a, b, c, d, e, and f, so ‘a’ is equal to 10 in decimal, ‘b’ is equal to 11 in decimal and so on. Back to the RGB to HEX conversion, in order to convert an RGB color code to a hex color code, you will need to convert each of the values (r, g, and b) individually. Decimal to hexadecimal conversion can be achieved by applying the repeated division and remainder algorithm. The essence of the algorithm is that the decimal number is repeatedly divided by the radix 16. In between these divisions, the remainders give the hex equivalent in reverse order. So for example, if the R-value is 123, then you can get its hexadecimal equivalent like this:
- Take the number 123, and divide by 16. 123 / 16 = 7.6875, which means that the first digit of hex color code is 7.
- Take the remainder of the first digit, 0.6875, and multiply by 16. 0.6875 (16) = 12, which means that the second digit of the hex color code is 11, or B.
- So the R value in HEX is 7b.
To get the HEX value of the RGB code you have to repeat this algorithm on each of the RGB numbers, but of course, if you don’t want to waste your time, you can use our superb RGB-to-HEX Converter.
