RGB Red, green, blue.
The three additive colours that mixed in digital imaging to create the large range of colours. Overlapping these colours in varying strengths creates cyan, yellow and magenta while equal proportions creates white. Computer monitors create accurate colour by firing light through red green and blue phosphors while digital cameras and scanners use RGB filters over the CCDs to create the colour information.
