Is there a color name to RGB and/or HEX resource?
« on: November 16, 2011, 11:30:48 PM »
Any one know of a resource where I can find or possibly buy a color to RGB and/or HEX values?

For example: If I want to know the RGB numbers for the color platinum. What would they be?

I've seen many HEX to RGB and RGB to HEX but not a color to HEX/RGB.


Thanks in advance.

What you you mean "HEX to RGB" and vice-versa? RGB is given in HEX values (3 or 6 digits).

Add: look around for other color name to RGB (HEX) files. I think there's one that comes with XWindows that's got more colors than the link I gave above. Regarding HEX/RGB, were you were talking about decimal triplets (0, 0, 255 instead of 'blue' or #0000FF)? That's a simple mechanical reformatting in either direction. Triplets are still used in some primitive systems, but 6 hex digits are used in HTML and CSS.
