Find the Right Color in Google Image Search

You have probably used Google Image Search to help you find images on the Internet. Now, according to blog Google Operating System, you can filter your results by color.

So, if you want pictures of orange kitties, search "kitties" in Google Image Search. The URL of the results page is

Then, add &imgcolor=orange at the end of the URL and search again. You’ll receive 36,000 results – many fewer than that 2+ million of the original search.

Nice tip if you need a specific image matched to an existing color scheme.
