How color extraction and search work
Your project has a database with a lot of product images, with eventually some meta-data about type, style, pricing, etc.
This meta-data rarely includes any color information, or if it does it's just about the name of the main color from a simple (<10 colors) palette. People can't find a product by real shades or combinations of colors.
Automated color extraction
Using Imagga's Color API, you can easily extract the colors of all your product images in an automated fashion! Your images are parsed through our Color API, we analyze them and suggest up to 5 representative colors (and their precise shades) for each product.
Even if the product image has a complex background, we can ignore it and extract only the real product colors!
Once the images have been parsed through our system, we can build and store a color search index and back-end. This allows your customers to search in your product collection via a single color or a combination of colors.
