Hi Jim,

If you search for an image at http://images.google.com , and then 
click on "show options," and then scroll down, in the left-hand menu 
under "any color," you can filter the search per those colors. The 
paramter that google adds to the URL is "imgcolor." So... it must be 
a valid parameter, because google adds it, recognizes presccribed 
values for it, and it works.
