# Hex Colors and RGB

Posted on 2014-02-07

How do i get the RGB from this value?

I have been told that it is actually read backwards. And then the numbers are converted to decimal. If that is so then it should be 70C6FF.

So in RGB it should be:
R = 112
G = 198
B = 255

But that does not produce the color shown in this screen shot.
I have the background color set to &H00FF6C07&

Here i have manually gone into the color editor and entered the RGB values i mentioned above. And this is what is produced. Notice that instead of &H00FF6C07& it produces &H00FFC670&. What am I doing wrong here?

Interesting.  Paint Shop Pro 7 gives me #086CFF and rgb(8,108,255) for the blue in that pic.  GIMP gives me the same colors.  This page shows the basic Hex and RGB colors: http://www.w3schools.com/html/html_colors.asp

Using the online converter I get the same results when entering it backwards that you get which is the lighter color.

Running it forwards yields what I think is some type of orange (not sure because I am color blind)

The colour has lots of blue (obviously), quite a bit of green and no red.
so I would guess at : 076CFF
so by reading it backwards - I think they mean keep the values but it is shown as BGR not RGB.

Makes sense ?

That does look closer

R = 7      = 07 hex
G = 108  = 6C hex
B = 255  = FF hex
