The Daily Hex: Algae Green


Bring a roll of slide film to your next beach trip to guarantee sunny photographs bathing in the vivid color of Algae Green!

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!

The pigment chloropyll is responsible for giving algae and plants their green color. However, the vivid color of these Algae Green photographs is not because of its presence. Most have been taken using a mix of slide and expired films that gave them their glowing green hue:
