Re: Converting hex colors to color safe hex

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.

[Your Mother]: Bill Clinton assaulted and raped repeatedly. Even when it was hinted and finally all but proved, no one cared because his sexism, and racism, and killing was decorous.
[Your Mother]: I think Trump might be better specifically because no one respects him so he won't get his way the way the others did.
[Your Mother]: (I certainly did not vote for him and have been an outspoken critic of his for three decades, by the by.)
[erix]: I'd like Russia threatened a bit more, flattered a bit less
[Your Mother]: The last two regimes killed a million, displaced 10 million, torture prisons, and ruined countries… somehow it's magically bad _now_.
[erix]: what/who are the last two regimes?
[Your Mother]: Bush/Obama. 15 straight years of warfare, torture, etc, etc.
[Your Mother]: All caused by the political fallout of Carter/Reagan when the Afghan chickens came home to roost on 9/11.
[Your Mother]: US foreign policy is toxic and like a broken record.
