custom google image searchThe Google Image Search is great and it provides images which are very relevant to the keywords you are looking for. The Google image serch now has a new option which allows you to filter your image search results by particular colours. For eg. if you need pics of only black cars, so will you get using this trick. For now, the option is not available in the Google Image search user interface, but you can edit the search results URL (link) to try it. We ran a search for blue coloured cars and found that the results were pretty relevant although you can still find some unrelated images. Here is the URL that led to our search result, followed by a screenshot:

http://images.google.com/images?q=car&imgcolor=blue

You can also run a search as you like. The URL which you should use is:

http://images.google.com/images?q=<your-query>&imgcolor=<colour-you-like>

Replace <your-query> with the query you want to run a search for and <colour-you-like> by any one colour from red, blue, green, teal, purple, yellow, orange, pink, white, gray, black and brown. Then goto this link by placing the URL in your browser bar and hit enter. The GOSBlog has a Image search form that will help you to filter your image search results by particular colours.
