What are the 8 HTML Color Values?
Now we are talking about the 8 HTML color values (HEX, RGB, RGBA, HSL, HSLA, HSV, HWB, CMYK).
The HEX Color Value is represented in hexadecimal, so the range goes from 00 to FF for each of them. The code is expressed as follows: #RRGGBB, each of the 2-digit values being the range of each of the 3 colors, with which we choose the final value that represents each color.
The RGB Color Value, Red - Green - Blue, is based on mixing these 3 colors to get the full range. Each of the colors takes a value between 0 and 255, a total of 256, with which a total of 256 x 256 x 256 is achieved = 16,777,216 different colors. Mixing these three colors would give you a rgb color code represented like this RGB(23,34,255).
The RGBA Color Value, Red - Green - Blue - Alpha that add a new factor, the alpha channel, that is, the opacity or transparency that follows the same percentage scheme: 0% represents absolute transparency and 100% represents absolute opacity which is the way we traditionally see colors.
The HSL Color Value, This model includes two additional parameters to the hue or chroma to obtain the color, which are saturation or brightness or tone. Hence its acronym: HSL (H - hue or hue, S - saturation or saturation, L - luminosity or luminosity / tone).
The HSLA Color Value, (H - hue or hue, S - saturation or saturation, L - luminosity or luminosity / tone - A - ALPHA), is a system is not a system that has been commonly used in web design, but it is used in other areas such as photographic editing or design (in general).
The HSV Color Value includes two additional parameters to the hue or chroma to obtain the color, which are saturation and value. Hence its acronym: HSV (H - hue or hue, S - saturation or saturation, V - value or value).
The HWB Color Value, (Hue-Whiteness-Blackness), is very similar to the HSV (Hue, Saturation, Value) and HSL (Hue, Saturation, Lightness), except that neither HSV nor HSL provides saturation for whiteness.
The CMYK Color Value is a subtractive model and is used in printing from pigments of three basic colors: C - cyan, M - magenta and Y - yellow. The K comes from the black, since the combination of the three previous ones produces a black little pure.
