RGBtoHEX

This simple macro exemplifies how to use ImageJ macro functions to convert RGB color values into Hex notation.


Code:
// This simple macro exemplifies how to use ImageJ macro functions to convert RGB color
// values into Hex notation.
//
// After obtaining the RGB tripplet of the current foregound color, the macro prompts
// the user to choose an alpha blending value. Choice is then converted into a four-byte
// hex number (#AARRGGBB) that is copied to the clipboard and can be pasted directly into
// the 'Image>Overlay>Add Selection... [b]' dialog box.
//
// As for RGB values, alpha values range from 0 (fully transparent) to 255 (solid color).
// This wikipedia article on 'web colors' has more information on hex color notation:
// http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_colors
