How To Choose Attractive Color CombinationsLots of people struggle to come up with attractive color combinations when designing logos, banners or web sites. So, here's an easy technique that only takes a few minutes.
What You Need:
Converting Decimal to Hexadecimal:

If you want to use your colors in HTML code, you'll need to convert the three numbers into hexadecimal, and put the digits in order RRGGBB.
A quick way to do this is:
R (decimal) = 194, converts to C2 (hexadecimal)
G (decimal) = 15, converts to 0F (hexadecimal)
B (decimal) = 140, converts to 8C (hexadecimal)
Therefore color to use in the HTML code is C20F8C.
