Identifying HTML colour codes placed in one pixel

  1. How many colours at once can one pixel contain?

  2. Is there a tool that can represent this pixel in a form of HTML colour codes? (And if there are many colours in this pixel, can this tool show the order of how colours are distributed all over the pixel – it’s like 4 colours in a pixel and it says that colour #NNNNNN is placed first on the left, then second is on the right and so on – or in any other explanation)*


Short answer: One pixel can contain one color (and one value for opacity, but that’s not relevant here). The different letters/number you see in your color code are the values that constitute it.

HTML colors are defined using a hexadecimal notation (HEX), those are the letters/numbers you see, and they are the combination of Red, Green, and Blue color values (RGB).

The lowest value that can be given to one of the light sources is 0 (in HEX: 00). The highest value is 255 (in HEX: FF). HEX values are specified as 3 pairs of two-digit numbers, starting with a # sign, the ones you mentioned. These are not 3 different colors in one, but one color made of them (because all colors are combinations of red, green and blue).

This site will give you a better view, as it shows how colors are constructed in HEX codes.

You can get the value of any pixel in your photo using for example a color picker in any graphic software (Photoshop, Gimp, etc), and use this code in web. All browsers will understand this HEX language.

If you want to convert your whole image to HEX, you can use a converter. I haven’t tried any, but if you do a search for “convert image to HEX” you will be able to find a few.
