Setting background and text colours in H2R Graphics is super easy, and you've got lots of options. Let's explore them all.

Selecting a colour

The easiest way to set a colour is to use the colour picker builting into the application.

In this example, the colour picker is opened and a colour is chosen by playing with the picker, or choosing a from the pre-definded list.

Entering a colour name

You can enter the name of a colour into the input next to the colour picker.

Typing in a name of a colour can be an easy way to skip using HEX or other values.

Entering a HEX or RGB value

If you have brand guidelines from your client, you can paste in the HEX or RGB value right into the input next to the colour picker.

Semi-transparent colours with RGBA

Don't want a solid colour, no problem - use RGBA values to get a little transparency with your graphics.

RGBA is made up of:

  • R = Red value

  • G = Green value

  • B = Blue value

  • A = Alpha on a scale of 0 to 1

For example, rgba(0,0,0) is a full black however rgba(0,0,0,0.5) is a half-transparent black shade.

In this example, we start with a low transparency of black and work our way up to full blank.
