# How to create a plot using rgb colors in R?

The rgb colors are referred to red green and blue. This combination helps us to create many different colors. In R, we can use rgb function to create a plot using with different colors along with the image function. If we want to have a plot with rgb colors without any axes title or axes labels then the appropriate arguments should be used inside the image function as shown in the below example.

## Example

Consider the below data frame:

Live Demo

> set.seed(9991)
> x1<-rnorm(20,0.5,0.2)
> x2<-rnorm(20,0.5,0.2)
> x3<-rnorm(20,0.5,0.2)
> df<-data.frame(x1,x2,x3)
> df

## Output

      x1       x2         x3

Creation of plot:

## Example

> image(1:nrow(df),1,as.matrix(1:nrow(df)),col=rgb(df$x1,df$x2,df\$x3),xlab="",ylab="",xaxt="n",yaxt="n",bty="n")
