Thursday Tip: Web Safe Colors

November 27, 2008

There has long been a misconception that only a limited set of colors were “safe” on the Web. That just isn’t the case, all RGB colors can be used on the Web. I’ve even seen mention that only Hex colors were Web safe. No, hexadecimal is simply another numbering system. In CorelDRAW, RGB values are shown in the decimal numbering system and range from 0-255. Hexadecimal represents those same numbers from 00-FF. There are a couple of tools that can help you use Hexadecimal numbers inside CorelDRAW. The first is Draw Color Helper and the other is wOxxOm Hex Color. Just remember to use RGB colors when designing for the Web and you’ll be “safe”.
