What is a web-safe color image maker?

This tool converts images to web-safe colors. It takes any image as the input and returns a new image that's re-colored using a web-safe color palette. The web-safe colors consist of 216 shades that are universally supported by all web browsers and older computers. An image that uses only web-safe colors is consistently displayed across different devices (older and newer) and browsers without dithering. In addition to web-safe colors, the program can also utilize other well-known color palettes. Among these are the Basic HTML Colors, which include 16 colors formed by varying percentages of red, green, and blue light. Next is the Extended HTML Colors, offering a wider range of 140 distinct colors with recognizable names, such as DeepPink, Firebrick, Tomato, Gold, Sienna, Purple, Navy, Turquoise, Olive, Beige, Silver, and others. The CSS Colors palette consists of 141 colors and is nearly identical to Extended HTML Colors, with the only difference being the inclusion of the color RebeccaPurple (which has the RGB code RGB(102, 51, 153)). The RebeccaPurple color is only present in the CSS palette. The Safest Web Colors palette is a limited set of 22 shades carefully selected from the 216 web-safe colors, ensuring reliable display on 16-bit computer monitors. Finally, there are eight more image palettes consisting of various shades of gray. Each of these palettes has a specific number of tones. The 256-shade grayscale palette is the most versatile and includes all possible gray tones, followed by progressively sparser palettes with 128, 64, 32, 16, 8, 4, and 2 gray colors. To convert an image into one of these color palettes, the program offers two color reduction algorithms. The "Closest Color Distance" algorithm is the faster of the two and uses the Euclidean distance method to determine the closest color in the chosen palette for each pixel in the image. It calculates the difference between the RGB values of the original pixel and the available palette colors, selecting the color with the smallest metric distance. The "Closest Perceived Color" algorithm, on the other hand, is slower but more accurate. It utilizes the delta-E (ΔE) distance method, accounting for differences in color perception of the human eye. This method ensures that the converted image closely matches the original in terms of how colors are perceived. You can observe the difference in the output image produced by these two algorithms by switching between them in the options. Additionally, the resulting web-safe image can be downloaded in PNG, JPEG, or WebP formats. Image-abulous!

Create a Web-safe Color Image

In this example, we convert a regular image of a ginger cat with a collar into an image that uses web-safe colors. The web-safe color palette consists of 216 shades that can be safely used even on older displays, devices, and browsers. The image itself, due to the substantial reduction in colors, becomes dappled and simplified. (Source: Pexels.)

Image in Basic HTML Colors

This example redraws an image of a sailboat using the Basic HTML Colors palette, which consists of only 16 color tones. These color tones include White, Silver, Gray, Black, Red, Maroon, Yellow, Olive, Lime, Green, Aqua, Teal, Blue, Navy, Fuchsia, and Purple. It utilizes the Closest Color Distance conversion method and as a result, produces a highly pixelated and schematic image. (Source: Pexels.)

Extended HTML Color Image

In this example, we use the Extended HTML color set consisting of 140 colors. Each color in this set has a name and is supported by all browsers. After the conversion, we obtain an abstract version of the image with artifacts, depicting cups and bread in a basket. (Source: Pexels.)

Convert an Image to CSS Colors

In this example, we switch the image to the CSS Colors palette. This color palette has just one additional color compared to the Extended HTML Colors, and this color is called "RebeccaPurple". The crocus flowers in the image use many pixels of the RebeccaPurple color and to visually see the difference between pixels of this color, you can switch between the CSS palette mode and the Extended HTML palette mode.

Image in Safest Web Colors

This example utilizes the Safest Web Colors palette to display an image of home decor. The Safest Web Colors palette consists of 22 shades that can be most reliably displayed on 8-bit and 16-bit computer displays. It also applies the Closest Perceived Color conversion algorithm, providing a visually more appealing result as compared to the Closest Distance conversion algorithm. (Source: Pexels.)

8-color Grayscale Image

In this example, we transform a multicolored image of a white flower in someone's hand into a grayscale image with a limited 8-color palette. Such a restriction on the color palette results in significant quantization of the image and the loss of most details. For example, the boat in the background becomes unrecognizable when there are less than 64 shades of gray tones present in the image. (Source: Pexels.)
