About Hex Color Codes

 It’s really easy to understand Hexadecimal color codes once you get the hang of them. Also it might help you understand them better, if you think of the hexadecimal colors codes like light not paint. With light certain colored light can cancel other colored light out.

 Every hexadecimal color code is made up of 6 numbers or letters, hence the name hexadecimal. Only the only numbers and letters that can be used are:

0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 A B C D E F

 Zero is the lowest amount of color, barely any color at all. F has 15 times as much color than 0. A 00 means there isn’t any of that particular color and a FF means that there is as much of that color as there can be.

Which digits make blue, red, or yellow?

The first 2 digits represent RED. FF0000 880000 330000

The next 2 digits represent GREEN. 00ff00 008800 003300

The next 2 digits represent BLUE. 0000ff 000088 000033

To get YELLOW you need to put RED and GREEN together. ffff00 888800 333300

Why does it turn yellow?

When RED and GREEN light get mixed together, the RED cancels out the BLUE and all that’s left is YELLOW.
