Have you ever wondered how RGB LED’s colors work? It is really simple! First of all, You need to know what it means. RGB stands for Red-Green-Blue LED stands for Light-emitting diode. For the next part, so you can understand a bit more, I would recommend going to THIS Color Picker. It will give you a random color. Next, you go the section that says ‘HEX’. It will say some weird code. Think of it like this: instead of six different numbers and letters, think of it as three different groups of two numbers. the first are red, the second is green, and the third is blue. If you mix red and blue, it makes Magenta, If you mix Red and green, it makes yellow, If you mix blue and green, it makes cyan. If you mix them all, it makes white. If you add no colors, it makes black. you can adapt colors to make other ones. Once you get used to it, you can read HEX codes!
