Searching flickr using colours

Ever had a trouble looking pictures on flickr that matches your blog layout or theme? Sometimes you’re making a theme with a black and orange layout and it looked dull without any graphics (like this blog :grin:). So you decided to get an image somewhere on flickr but you’re having  a hard time looking for a picture that suits your blog theme? Fear not, multicolr is here !

Multicolr is a site that allows you to search flickr using the color palettes. Still wondering how it works? Here’s some info from the website.

We extracted the colours from 10 million of the most “interesting” Creative Commons images on Flickr. Using our visual similarity technology you can navigate the collection by colour.

See how it works in the screenshot below. In the screenshot, I’m trying to find pictures using the orange, black and a few other colours that match the desired output.


As simple as that. There are other similar services from Idee Inc Labs search tool for other image sharing sites other than flickr. Similar services also can be applied to Alamy Stock Photography. There you go. Now you have a new way to search photos on flickr and Alamy Stock Photos. Have fun ! :razz:

  • That’s an interesting one, there will be more of these search engines for pictures and videos as time goes by.
