The Daily Hex: Bistre

Make your photographs similar to the classic creations by the Old Masters with a touch of Bistre!

What’s a ‘hex’ anyway?

Hex actually pertains to hex values, which are 6-digit hexidecimal numbers that are primarily used in web design. Your photographs can be viewed by hex values and we have almost 1,500 common colors that you can browse through, most of which have names that are quirky, goofy, and downright weird. But don’t be fooled, these colors are real eye candies, too!

Bistre is a shade of brown made from soot of burned beechwood. In Europe, skilled painters or Old Masters, as they were called, preferred using bistre as ink for their drawings. Have a look at some of the best photographs in the Community made artistic by Bistre:
