Color Search – The Yay Way

“Parasol” by Ivonnewierink

Hi everyone

We are currently working hard on the search experience here at Yay Micro. We have some pretty cool stuff coming up in the near future, and today we’re introducing color search – the Yay Way.

We are big fans of the “keep it simple – stupid” philosophy. When we were thinking about how to implement color search, there was a lot of really interesting ideas that arose. In the end we wanted to create something that was easy enough for everyone to use, but at the same time providing a powerful tool that would be useful.

We ended up with what I would call Google Image Search on steroids. If you are familiar with Google Image Search, you might have noticed that you can easily choose a color for your images, but only one. We wanted to take it a step further and give users the same user interface, but allow them to choose multiple colors that might want in an image. Also, we wanted to give them the option to exclude certain colors. We are quite happy with what we ended up, and now we want to know what you think about it. It’s our first version, and we will defenitly keep improving it to our users’ needs.

Some examples of what you can search for:
Blue and Yellow “Flowers
Red and Brown, but not White “Woman”

So what do you think, leave a comment :)

Regards,
Bjorn

  1. Hey! I understand this is kind of off-topic however I needed to ask.
    Does managing a well-established blog such as yours require a massive amount work?
    I’m completely new to operating a blog but I do write in my diary everyday. I’d like to start a blog so
    I will be able to share my own experience and feelings online.
    Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for
    new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!

      Hi! Like everything you do, the blog requires time and perseverance on your part. I don’t think there is any key to making your blog great except to keep working on it, always evolve and don’t give up! Try to test all the features, make previews before you post and most important, write and post from your heart.
      Best of luck!
