Hex color numbers can now be used at ImageMagick™ to create backs as well as the color names. Just put the six digit number with hash in the meta slot; like this: #996633.|
Dex color too can now be
used to make backgrounds.
The dex color is made of three channels;
red, green, and blue.
In addition, an alpha or
transparency may be added.
A good range for the
transparency is 0.2 up to 1.0.
For reference here are some more
familiar Hex to Dex combinations.
To use Dex colors at ImageMagick™;
let's use gradient.
Here's how you write the rgb in the meta slot.
NOTE the dash between them and
NOTE the commas and brackets.
Here's how you write the rgb with transparency.
NOTE the addition of "a" to the rgb.
NOTE the last number shown as a decimal
Be sure to output as a jpg or a png or
you will lose the transparency.
Png provides a most lusterous color.
Here's some examples for comparison._____§§
With the addition of the alpha channel
your color matches can now be perfect.
Thanks to Linda for the DEX chart.
