What is RGB?
RGB (Red, Green and Blue) is a color model that represents the colors to be used in the display of images (whether it is a smartphone, television, computer screen, tablets, or even used in photography, among others). If you want a different color, for example yellow, you will need to mix a certain amount of red with a certain amount of green.
Each color is represented by a range of levels (256 levels for each color), that is represented with 1 byte. The total amount of colors that this model can represent is a total of 16,777,216 colors (256 * 256 * 256).
What is HEX?
HEX (also known as hex, or base 16) is the abbreviation of hexadecimal. It is another way of expressing RGB colors and it’s widely used in web development. The six digits of a hex code is in fact three two-digit numbers, each pair representing a color (red, green or blue). So, in the following hex code color (#123456), the first two digits (12) corresponds to the red color, the second two digits (34) corresponds to green, and the last two digits (56) corresponds to blue.
Each digit can take the value of 0 to 9 and from A to F (it can be written in upper or lower case).
Why should I use HEX instead of RGB?
