Random Color Generator

    Effortlessly discover the perfect hue for your next project and generate random colors with Pixelied's color randomizer tool.

    Random Color Selector: Overview

    What is a random color generator?

    A random color generator produces random colors, offering utility across various design, artistic, and educational applications. It selects colors without a specific pattern, creating diverse and unpredictable results useful for brainstorming, inspiration, or troubleshooting color scheme issues.

    Random HEX color generator

    Random HEX code generator produce colors encoded in hexadecimal format, a popular method for specifying colors in digital design. It typically involves a six-digit combination of letters and numbers following a hash symbol (e.g., #A4B2F8), representing red, green, and blue components. Pixelied’s color randomizer allows quick generation of random HEX colors, which can be used in web design and graphic editing software.

    Random RGB color generator

    In contrast, RGB color generators focus on creating colors based on the RGB color model, which combines red, green, and blue light in varying intensities to produce a broad array of colors. An RGB color generator outputs values for each primary color, ranging from 0 to 255, typically presented in the format of (R, G, B). This random selection process assists in creating dynamic color palettes for digital artwork and user interface designs.

    How to use the random color generator?

    Using a random color picker can greatly simplify choosing colors for various purposes, from design projects to educational activities. Here’s how you can randomly generate colors at random using Pixelied:

    Step 1: Select the Number of Colors

    The first step involves deciding how many colors you want the generator to produce. You can select up to a maximum of 50 colors to generate at once. Users may input the desired quantity or use the arrows to select the number of colors they want.

    Step 2: Generate Random Colors

    Once you’ve set the number of colors to generate, click on the ‘Randomize Color’ button to start the process. The tool will display a unique color set with a visible sample and corresponding codes in HEX, RGB, RGBA, HSB, or HSL. You can choose a random color from the results and use it in your projects.

    Types of Color Models

    Color models represent and categorize colors in a way that a computer can understand and process. These models serve as the basis for digital art, design, and various technologies requiring accurate color replication and manipulation.


    RGB stands for Red, Green, and Blue. It's a color model for sensing, representing, and displaying images in electronic systems like televisions and computers. Each color can be represented by a hexadecimal code, with values varying from 00 to FF, indicating the intensity of red, green, and blue.


    RGBA is an extension of the RGB color model. The additional "A" stands for Alpha, representing the opacity level where 0% is completely transparent and 100% is fully opaque. RGBA allows for the representation of colors combined with varying degrees of transparency.


    CMYK is the color model used in color printing and stands for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Key (black). Unlike RGB, CMYK is a subtractive color model, meaning one starts with white and subtracts light to create color. CMYK is the appropriate color model for printed work, corresponding to the ink colors used.


    RYB stands for Red, Yellow, and Blue, commonly referred to as the artist's primary colors. It is a historical color model still used in art and design education, particularly when mixing physical paints or discussing traditional color theory.


    HSL represents the Hue, Saturation, and Lightness of a color. Hex and RGB focus on the mix of colors to achieve the desired result, whereas HSL focuses on the perceptual aspects. HSL colors make it relatively straightforward to adjust the lighting or saturation of a color while maintaining the hue.


    HSV stands for Hue, Saturation, and Value. While similar to HSL, the HSV value represents the color's brightness. HSV (also known as HSB, where "B" stands for Brightness) is often used in graphic design and image editing software. It is more intuitive for creating color schemes by choosing colors of the same hue and adjusting their saturation or brightness.

    How does the random color picker work?

    A random color picker is a tool used to pick a color randomly from the possible range of colors. The process involves algorithms and sometimes user input that influences the color palette selection.

    When initiated, the tool first defines the color space—with options like RGB (Red, Green, Blue) or HSL (Hue, Saturation, Lightness)—to establish a potential range from which the colors are chosen. A main color might randomly select a single point within this space or apply additional rules to cover a range of related hues and brightness levels.

    The functionality often includes sliders or input fields that let users adjust how many colors to randomly generate to suit their specific project needs. For example, they might adjust the brightness or include only pastel colors in their palette.
