Some Cool Image Search Engines (Search By Colors))

Image search is evolving quickly. Today you don’t even need to use words to search images. Now you can use colors!. That’s right you can search images by color.


PicItUp is a visual image search engine that combines word-based with color based search.
Test it: search for [autumn] and choose any color from the left column (I chose yellow). Now let’s look at the results.

Unlike the above one, with the Flickr-based Multicolr service you can combine as many colors as you want.
Test it: choose several colors and watch how the image list changes with each color added (I combined purple and light purple)
Etsy, an online shop of handmade products, has developed color search for their own product database.
Test it: It’s real fun to play with. Just browse your mouse across the screen and watch various colors and same-palette products pop up.

Arent this search engines really cool and useful.
They definitely have a nice look, interesting features and cool display.
