Searching images by colors and getting color swatches and…

So this is from the developer of colr.org. It’s pretty neat. Load an image, get some colors to use for color schemes. Very cool. And they can link to other services as well. Very, very cool. And the colr site is built on web.py.

Searching by colors: the good, the great, and the thick-headed hopefully awesome.

Check this great site out right now:

Sweet, right?

After I discovered it, I started changing code on http://www.colr.org to link from colors and schemes to the multicolour search.

(Click on a color or scheme, then click the “more” button).

Awesome. Took about 20 minutes total.

You know who else has color searching? Istockphoto.com does. I hooked up colr.org to their site last year.
