At Imagga we really like to come up with fun ideas of different use cases for our technologies. This is how "What if" blog posts seriese have been born.
I'll start with one of the biggest players in the market of social image sharing - Pinterest. Great UI, really! I'm creative guy and after Pinterest came on the web stage, everyone else started to follow their model for visual presentation of large sets of images. But there is something that's missing - a good color search. Imagine that we have ability to filter all that images by color types. That would be awesome! Imagga's color extraction and multicolor search technology gives you that kind of fun and useful solution. Here are some examples that pop up in my mind:
I really think that some smart multicolor search technology will be great asset for Pinterest. This may significantly increase the user experience of that great image service. Well, this are just ideas of how to implement our technologies. Probably Pinterest have all that in mind and pipeline.
We also have some other smart technologies that are still in development mode - auto-tagging and visual similarity search to mention few. The combination of these APIs can bring even more context and make pinterest-like projects way more intuitive to navigate.
