### How to convert CMYK to HEX

To convert colors from CMYK to HEX, you must first convert CMYK code into an RGB color mode.

In this example, we will convert CMYK code`CMYK(0, 100, 0, 0)` to an RGB using three simple steps:

Step 1: Calculate the red color value R:

```                R = 255 x (1 - C) * (1 - K)
R = 255 x (1 - 0) * (1 - 0)
R = 255
```

Step 2: Calculate the green color value G:

```                G = 255 x (1 - M) * (1 - K)
G = 255 x (1 - 1) * (1 - 0)
G = 0
```

Step 3: Calculate the blue color value B:

```                B = 255 x (1 - Y) * (1 - K)
B = 255 x (1 - 0) * (1 - 0)
B = 255
```
```                CMYK(0, 100, 0, 0) = RGB(255, 0, 255)
```

Now that we have RGB color `RGB(255, 0, 255)`, we can convert it to a HEX code by converting 255, 0, and 255 into hexadecimal values:

```                255 = FF
0   = 00
255 = FF
```
```                HEX = #FF00FF
```

### More Examples

Example #1: convert color red `CMYK = (0, 100, 100, 0)` to HEX:

```                CMYK = (0, 100, 100, 0)
RGB  = (255, 0, 0)
HEX  = #FF0000
```

Example #2: convert color green `CMYK = (100, 0, 100, 0)` to HEX:

```                CMYK = (100, 0, 100, 0)
RGB  = (0, 255, 0)
HEX  = #00FF00
```

Example #3: convert color blue `CMYK = (100, 100, 0, 0)` to HEX:

```                CMYK = (100, 100, 0, 0)
RGB  = (0, 0, 255)
HEX  = #0000FF
```

Example #4: convert color white `CMYK = (0, 0, 0, 0)` to HEX:

```                CMYK = (0, 0, 0, 0)
RGB  = (255, 255, 255)
HEX  = #FFFFFF
```

Example #5: convert color black `CMYK = (0, 0, 0, 100)` to HEX:

```                CMYK = (0, 0, 0, 100)
RGB  = (0, 0, 0)
HEX  = #000000
```

### When to use HEX?

You should use HEX color mode for designs that will be displayed on device screens and will not be physically printed. Whether they’ll be viewed on computer monitors, smartphone screens, or TVs - HEX color mode is your best pick.

Use HEX if your project requires

• web & app design:
• layouts
• icons
• buttons
• branding:
• logotypes
• banners
• social media:
• profile pictures
• cover backgrounds
• post images

### What are the best file formats for HEX?

PNG: if your logo or graphic needs to be transparent, meaning it has no background, PNG is the perfect fit. Consider this file type for interface elements like buttons, banners, or icons.

JPEG: if your graphic does not need to be transparent, you should use this file format as it’s usually smaller in size and is a perfect format for images.

GIF: if you are using animated graphics such as moving logo or bouncing icon, or your image has any motion - this file type would is ideal.

It’s best to avoid TIFF, EPS, and PDF because these formats are not compatible with most software and are usually larger in size.
