nobody knows those things by heart lol. Great developers just remember some of them because they work with them alot. use tools like adobe's kuler (google it) to find hexadecimal values or in any other format u want. Over time you'll remember a few.

same with CSS, HTML, and any programming language, dont be discouraged if you have to use documentation everyone does it, or at least I do all the time.


Thank you, Andre!!

Going along with Andre, Adobe Kuler( https://kuler.adobe.com/create/color-wheel/ ) is a great tool to use, I use it all the time. Another great tool to use is Color Scheme Designer ( http://colorschemedesigner.com/ )

Thank you so much, Timothy :D When Nick was typing those codes, I was thinking... no way I could remember those codes.

I don't think there is a single sole that knows all the hexadecimal values haha. Adobe Kuler has more of a modern UI which is nice but HTML Color Picker works just as well!

You can also use a Color Picker app like ColorSnapper or the default app of OSX.
