What can you use the app for?

ColorHexa is an application that anyone can use to uncover information about colors. For example, a user could type in any color values in the search field and ColorHexa will provide the color's equivalent value in Hexadecimal, Binary, RGB, CMYK, HSL, HSV, CIE-LabHunter-Lab, CIE-Luv, CIE-LCH, XYZ and xyY. In addition users of the app can create complementary color schemes of colors. Users of ColorHexa can also blend two or more colors together or even create a gradient between two colors as well. Users can search by any of the color values listed above. In addition ColorHexa indicates which colors are "Internet friendly" and colors can also be provided a name so that finding and discussing colors is easy to do. Basically, ColorHexa is a color encyclopedia- it provides color information and conversions.
