How It Works

Step 1.

Dominant colors with weights are extracted from images. As part of the analysis our engine performs automatic background detection and removal. The end results may look like this:

[{
  "Color": "8EBD65",
  "Name": "pistachio",
  "Weight": 12.0
},
{
  "Color": "BBD4E1",
  "Name": "soft blue",
  "Weight": 29.0
},
{
  "Color": "EDF0EA",
  "Name": "white smoke",
  "Weight": 59.0
}]

Step 2.

End user submit a search request. Our Search plugin parses the search query and returns matching images. It understands more than 350 color names as well as RGB codes.

Our Ranking plugin computes a color search score that can be used directly or in combination with other factors to sort the results.
