PAINTBOX

The Potted Learning Pages at Project HappyChild


Web designers can choose from over 16 million colours, when they're building pages ... but getting the exact shade of colour you want can be surprisingly difficult, when you're working with one of those colour-selectors where you move your mouse across a square multi-coloured block and click when you think you've got the right colour.

Any web designer knows that good use of colours and shades can make a lot of difference to a web page - even one that's not brightly-coloured, like the one here - and if you're putting together your first web page, you might like to look through our "Internet Paintbox" and select your colours from the 200,000+ shades of colour available.

Just choose the one you want and put it in the "body" tag on your html page - eg where it says BGCOLOR="#ffffff" for a page with a white background, you just paste in the # code from the paintbox, in place of the ffffff , and you should end up with the exact shade you selected :)

Internet professionals are welcome to make use of our Paintbox - but please, if you use it regularly, make a donation to one of the kids' charities in the Directory or our worldwide area for "projects helping kids". Thank you :)



Below is the index to all the colour swatches. Each swatch of 64 colours shows blue being added gradually from the first to the last; green is increased from one swatch to the next; and red is increased from one block of 64 swatches to the next. You may find it more interesting to start in the centre somewhere :) the early colours (00, 01 etc.) tend to be pretty dark and not easily distinguishable on a browser.

You can track the red increase by moving sequentially down the table below (or by selecting a sequentially-higher value for red on individual swatch pages). Note that in the type of notation used, the sequence is 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, a, b, c, d, e, e, f - and that the first of the two numbers or letters within each set acts like the "tens" in tens-and-units - so a change of the first digit usually means a stronger colour-change than the same degree of increase in the second digit of the pair.

Of the six numbers/letters for each colour, the first two are "red", the second two are "green" and the final two are "blue". eg #000000 means no red, no green, no blue (so no colour is present, and black is how #000000 presents on the web page).

Have fun with your pagebuilding! If you need some free software, there's a very simple program called Arachnophilia (the old, non-java version, the same as we use for building this site), available for download here. Developed by Paul Lutus who decided to give it away rather than charge money for it, Arachnophilia lets you work on up to 100 pages at a time ..... and there are some guidelines on his download page, to help you get started with building webpages.




Finally, there are the "safe colours" (the ones that don't "dither" when you magnify the colour block to a massive size so that you can see all the individual pixel-colours). There are only 216 of these that "stay the same", ie solid blocks of the same colour, and they are shown in the table below.

Most web designers tend to use a much broader range of possible colours, but the ones shown below are a good "beginner's paintbox".

The Internet Paintbox has been made available on this site on 07.07.07, the 2nd anniversary of the London bombings, much as the Potted Learning pages went on line on the 2nd anniversary of the Twin Towers tragedy. Life for many people is difficult enough without terrorist bombs, and we just wanted to mark the dates with a small contribution to the sharing of resources worldwide.
