Colour-based photo search – Multicolr

Navy Blue Colour SearchIf 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!

Multicolr red, white and blue searchClick on any image to see it in Flickr and you’re done. It doesn’t get much easier.

Whether you’re looking for something very specific or just a bit of colourful inspiration, give Multicolr a try!

Man needs colour to live; it’s just as necessary an element as fire and water – Fernand Leger
