MulticolorEngine Lab: Get my color – or color extraction

MulticolorEngine, the API powering our color search lab is now available for licensing. You have probably already played with our color search lab and already experienced addictive color searching but if you haven’t give it a whirl today.

This API can be integrated with any image search collection to allow users to search by colors. Well suited for e-commerce and image centric website and requiring no technology infrastructure changes, this API’s features include: the ability to index images by color, search by color as well as extract colors from a single image or a series of images – amongst many other features.

Today we would like to feature MulticolorEngine’s color extraction feature. To showcase this feature, we created a lab that allows users to extract colors from their images in real time. Drop by the lab, play with the feature and let us know what you think; we would love your feedback!

Using this MulticolorEngine lab you can:

  • upload an image
  • drag and drop an image
  • or provide a URL to view the colors contained in your image.

MulticolorEngine will display a color palette for all the colors identified in your image. Color extraction works for JPEGs, PNGs and GIFs. Colors are displayed in RGB or HEX values.
