In this article, we will see how to set the color opacity with RGBA in CSS. RGBA is a color format, basically containing values for red, green, blue respectively and ‘A’ in RGBA stands for Alpha. To set the opacity of color we mainly change the value of alpha. The value of alpha varies from 0.0 (fully transparent) to 1.0 (fully opaque).

Syntax:

class/id { attribute: rgba(val1, val2, val3, val4) }

Example: In the following example, we use the CSS background-color property with alpha value (opacity).

HTML

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
 
<body>
    <h2 style="color:green">
        GeeksforGeeks
    </h2>
    <b>Setting opacity with rgba</b>
     
    <p class="para1" style=
        "background-color: rgba(255, 0, 0, 0.0);">
        Red
    </p>
 
 
    <p class="para2" style=
        "background-color:rgba(255, 0, 0, 0.9) ;">
        Red
    </p>
 
 
    <p class="para3" style=
        "background-color:  rgba(0, 255, 0, 0.3);">
        Green
    </p>
 
 
    <p class="para4" style=
        "background-color:  rgba(0, 255, 0, 0.7) ;">
        Green
    </p>
 
 
    <p class="para5" style=
        "background-color:rgba(0, 0, 255, 0.4) ;">
        Blue
    </p>
 
 
    <p class="para6" style=
        "background-color: rgba(0, 0, 255, 1.0);">
