I was looking through old blogs and thought this new introduction to the site back in 2008 by Ajay might be of interest/help some members when planning makeovers and or new borders?
To go to it type Garden colour inspiration in the search box.

Ajay wrote in January 2008:
’we have just put up a new feature called Garden Colour Inpiration

With the growing set of gardening photos on GoY we thought searching through them by colour would be a fantastic tool. We hope you agree? Maybe you are planning a new border and wanted a few ideas? or Maybe you just fancied something orange in you garden? :) Once you have found something, why not see what else that member is growing in their garden?

So how does this work? Every day our little spider scans through the photos uploaded the previous day and determines the colours in each photo and makes them available to the search. Visitors to Garden Colour Inpiration can then pick a colour from the slider and see up to an initial 12 matching results.
Clicking on any of the results will bring up a slideshow allowing you to browse through all the pictures matching that colour’,

I notice that all the pictures I looked at were from 2008. Does that mean its not operational for current pictures?

22 Aug, 2011

 

Its computer generated Tetrarach, each colour has lots of shades and each shade has 12 possible matches and most of these were done in 2008/9 some in 2010. Once the selection of the shade is made the photo do not change - as shades do not change. The idea like all colour wheels is, if you want a specific shade of pink it gives you 12 possible matches and if you go slightly darker or lighter it will give you 12 more possibles.

Ahhh the technicalities! I really should've guessed..thanks for that Drc, I will fiddle with it some more..found some lovely pics on there so will dip in and out...it really is fun!
