in reply to Converting hex colors to color safe hex

Do you perhaps mean "web safe" instead of "color safe"? If so, it's a pretty easy approach.

Each element of the color is 1 byte (0-255 unsigned), and expressed in hex. All you have to do is round the values of each byte to the nearest in the "web safe" color chart. (with some bounds-checking, of course).

Show us some code on what you've tried, perhaps trying to implement that kind of solution, and you'll get better help. Check out How (Not) To Ask A Question for tips on getting the best help here.
