I'm working on two different DotNetNuke sites, and I have an issue with the current DNN "skin", Minimal Extropy. The color scheme they've chosen for it, in shades of light blue and a screaming red, clash horribly with both my sites (one works in light purple, one in black and orange).
I'd like to convert the color scheme in Minimal Extropy to grayscale. I know how to read CSS; I understand how to change the color values. What I don't know is how to take a hex color definition, (say, #78EFB2, which is the screaming red I can't use) and convert it to grayscale. All the tools I've found on the web so far seem to assume input of a JPG or some kind of color image. Wikipedia had some horrific formula you're supposed to use - math is not my strong point.
Has anyone ever done this? Is there some kind of tool a jack-of-all-trades could use for this, without having to be a coding expert?
