Story prompts with colour image search

I am always looking for useful image search tools. TinEye Labs provides a colour search function which searches Flickr images. You can select up to 5 colours and alter the percentage of colour by dragging the coloumns. You can also add keywords as tags to refine the search. When you click on an individual image it gives you information about the image.

There are many ways to use this website:
  • generate story prompts
  • brainstorm ideas for themes
  • look at colour theory eg. complimentary colours, warm and cool colours
  • colour symbolism
  • fractions and percentages
  • useful for design purposes when working within a colour scheme.
The site also offers a tool to help you identify the colours from an image.
