Colors in CSS

What are colors?

  • Colors are used to set the colors on the text.

  • In CSS, we can set colors in three types of value: i) color by name, ii) color by RGB value, and iii) color by HEX value.

Color by Name

  • In this CSS color property value, we will use name of the color to set the color of the text.
  • In this, we can use predefined color names like red, green, blue, purple, orange, etc.

.para {
       color: blue;

Color by RGB

  • In this color property value, we will use RGB value to set the color.
  • RGB color value represents R=RED, G=GREEN, and B=BLUE
  • rgb value can be from 0 to 255.
  • We can set rgb value by using this: rgb(red, green, blue).
  • We can also set the opacity of the color by using alpha value. The alpha value can be from 0.0 to 1.0.
  • We can set alpha value using this: rgb(red, green, blue, alpha).

.para {
       color: rgb(196, 16, 166, 0.5);

Color by HEX

  • In this color property value, we will use the HEX value to set the color.
  • HEX defines the hexadecimal value of the color and we can set using #rrggbb or #000000.
  • In rrggbb, rr for Red, gg for green and bb for blue. OR we can also use these values from 0 to 255.

.para {
       color: #324300;
