0to255 is a simple tool created by Shaun Chapman that helps web designers find lighter and darker colors based on any color.
I built 0to255 to make my job easier. I’m a web designer who works with colors every day. Usually, I’ll start with a color I want to use, then I’ll manipulate it for various functions. For example, I might brighten a link in its hover state or darken a button’s border to make it contrast with surrounding elements. Web designers do things like these several times an hour.
0to255 make this process a lot simpler. Simply pick the color that you want to start with and 0to255 gives you a range of colors from black to white using an interval optimized for web design. Then, just click the variation you want to use and the hex code is automatically copied to your clipboard.
