RGB color

Red, green, and blue are the primary colors of light. Because computer monitors use light to display colors on‐screen, the RGB system is what computers use. RGB is an additive color system, which means that you add different amounts of red, green, and blue to create colors. Black is the absence of light and so is the absence of color in the RGB system. As you add different values of the three primaries, you get different colors. RGB colors are represented as numbers between 0 and 255 — one number for each R, G, and B. Zero means that none of that color exists and 255 means that the maximum amount of the color exists. So for example, 0, 0, 245 represents a very blue color (0 for the value of red, 0 for the value of green, and 245 for the value of blue).
