Color Me (freaking) Amazed

You’d think after the movie Pleasantville, the world would have embraced color as the new Jesus. It has (it’s got nothin’ on Jesus, fyi).

Resources like iStockphoto.com have worked hard to provide support for designers needing to match a specific color palette (even a specific hex color), for advertising and/or branding considerations. Their color space recognition in the advanced search is pretty sophisticated (read more here).

MultiColr Search Lab from Idee Labs has come up with a way to search Flickr based on color. Totally freaking awesome, they’ve compiled Flickr’s database and sorted by color so you can find photos for yourself.

One can only imagine Flickr becoming the new web 2.0 stock photo repository. Tools like this make it that much more usable.
