If you like to look at pretty pictures | How About Orange

November 07, 2008

If you like to look at pretty pictures

Check out this site where you can search Flickr by color. Let's pick a color you might like. Um, how about orange? So you click your favorite orange hue in the palette, and all orange photos come up. You can add more colors to your list and see photos that are orange and pink, let's say. Keep adding or changing your color list to see more pictures, then click on a thumbnail to view any photo on its original Flickr page. I don't know what this is good for, but it's kind of cool.

What a fun tool! (Or timewaster when I don't feel like working... :) I have been thinking of color combos for redecorating, so this could be a cool way to come across great inspiration ideas!

Might not be good for much, but it sure looks fun.

It's okay if I stop making bags for you for awhile and play with it, isn't it? ;-)

I love this site! It's great for graphic designers when they need specific colors of something. Something I should pass to my husband!

picking room colors, wedding colors...i like that it shows the colors in real life and real lighting situations, as opposed to swatches.

This would be a great tool for finding wall art to match a certain color scheme of a room. Too bad you can't purchase prints from the creators...

Not a time waster ... great for generating colour combinations for those of us who (like me) have no natural apptitude for same. (must admit I am online because my first client of the day didn't show!!! so I'm surfing the net instead of doing invoicing or reports. well.........
