#ff0000
rgb(255, 0, 0)
#ff8000
rgb(255, 128, 0)
#ffff00
rgb(255, 255, 0)


Analogous Color Scheme (Close)

The close analogous color scheme uses colors which are close to the main color on the color wheel. In this case the analogous colors are 15° right and left of the main color.

rgb(255, 128, 0)
#00ffc8
rgb(0, 255, 200)
#0080ff
rgb(0, 128, 255)
#ff0037
rgb(255, 0, 55)


Tetradic Color Scheme Left

Basically the same scheme as before - just turning the rectangle the other way around.
#ff8000
rgb(255, 128, 0)
#c8ff00
rgb(200, 255, 0)
#0080ff
rgb(0, 128, 255)

Color Information and Schemes in the URL

The idea and reason of this page is getting color information. Fast and simple. Therefore I created it in a way that you can specify the color you are interested in directly in the URL.
\n
\nSome example how colors can be specified in the URL:
\nSpecifying a hex value. Make sure to remove the # sign:
\nhttp://www.russwurm.at/color/ff8000
\n
\nDirectly specify an RGB code:
\nhttp://www.russwurm.at/color/rgb(255,128,0)
\n
\nDirectly specify an HSL value:
\nhttp://www.russwurm.at/color/hsl(100,0.3,0.3)
\n
\nOr specify the HSL values as percentages:
\nhttp://www.russwurm.at/color/hsl(100,30,30)
