How Color Extraction Works

The pixel content of every image is analyzed in terms of colors, and up to five most prominent colors are determined. The predominant colors are output as hex code, RGB (red, green, blue) triple, specific color name, and parent color name. Imagga's Color Extraction extracts the colors of the foreground and background of the image separately if needed.

Color Extraction API can be beneficial in e-commerce projects to provide elaborate and precise color search capabilities.
