Peter Piper's Palette Picker

Note: a minimum screen resolution of 1024 pixels is required to use the palette picker.


Click into one of the input boxes below, then pick your color choice from the color palette on the left, or enter a Hexadecimal (Hex) value of your own. To change one of your color choices, click on the area within your composition that you'd like to change (or the related input box,) and select a new color from the color palette on the left.

Modifying Hues

Hexadecimal values are similar to RGB values. Increasing or decreasing the individual digits of the hue's hexadecimal number will provide a variation in your selected color. The first two digits designate the red value, the next two the green, and the last are blue values. The lowest value that can be given to one of the light sources is 0 (hex #00). The highest value is 255 (hex #FF).
Lowest to highest: 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 A B C D E F
You can copy & paste these values into the input areas to view variations of red: #330000, #660000, #AA0000, #DD0000, #FF0000, #FF7777, & #FF3333.
