Colour-based photo search – Multicolr
If you’re looking for a particular colour picture to go with your document, blog post or website, this can be a frustrating and often long process (trust me, I know). Over at idée Labs, they’ve created a tool called Multicolr, which analyses photos from Flickr and serves them up according to the colour you choose from the palette on the right. Not only that, but you can choose up to 10 colours to include in the search, repeating certain ones to give them more prominence.
We didn’t go that far, but we did start with a navy blue (left) and then, perhaps in a sudden rush of patriotism, added a white and a red – et volià!
Whether you’re looking for something very specific or just a bit of colourful inspiration, give Multicolr a try!
