ArtyClick "Color Name Finder"


The feature "Color Name Finder" provides the most common names for a color. It finds color names for 3 types of input:

  • Color name from an image or a photo

  • Color name from a hex or an RGB code

  • Color name from a color picker

Uploading Image

Use the button to select and load your image.

Once the image is loaded, clicking on the image areas will initiate the color name identification.

Since lighting conditions strongly affect the colors in an image, it is recommended to take pictures in natural light to obtain the most representative color names.

Color Codes

The ArtyClick Color Name Finder can be used to find color names from the hex or RGB color codes. The following color codes are supported:

  • Hex (e.g. "#FF0000" or "#FFF")

  • RGB (e.g. "RGB(255,0,0)")

The supported RGB codes correspond to the 24-bit system where each component ranges between 0 and 255 (8-bit encoding).

Color Names

Color names are provided by the comprehensive ArtyClick Color Dictionary with over 1,700 most common color names.

The color match score represents the similarity between the selected color and the most similar color from the dictionary. It ranges between 0% and 100%, with 100% being a perfect match; most matches are greater than 95% thanks to the high density of the used color dictionary.

Color Hue

Each color belongs to one of the 8 basic hues:

  • Red

  • Orange

  • Yellow

  • Green

  • Cyan (turquoise or aqua)

  • Blue

  • Purple (violet)

  • Magenta (bright pink)

More complex hues can be described as a composition of two hues, one as the primary and one as the secondary hue. For example, "orangy red" describes a hue that is red with a hint of orange (red is primary and orange is secondary).

Only combinations of subsequent hues (as listed above) are possible. For example, there is a "blueish purple", but there is no "yellowish purple". There are only 2 hues that are occasionally skipped or ignored when describing complex hues: cyan and magenta. For example, instead of referencing cyan, the notion of a "greenish blue" may be used.

Color Intensity

The color intensity is described using one of 7 levels (ordered from the most to the least saturated):

  • Vibrant

  • Moderate

  • Medium

  • Pastel

  • Pale

  • Almost none

  • None

The intensity is inversely proportional to the amount of grey in a color. Vibrant colors are pure and only exhibit limited amounts of grey, while pastel and pale colors are diluted with grey and are less poppy. Vibrant colors are usually used for setting accents, while pastel and pale colors often appear in the background or in unprocessed photos.
