Hi Curt,

Yes, I see what you mean.

imgcolor seems to be quite limited, though. i haven't found a way to specify 
a general color. such as #ff1111. it seems limited to verbal descriptions of 
color such as 'red'.

and http://images.google.com/images?q=blue+car is as blue car-ish as 
http://images.google.com/images?q=car&imgcolor=blue

the two parameters i find most interesting in google image search, at this 
point, are imgtype=face and the as_rights parameter such as 
as_rights=(cc_publicdomain|cc_attribute|cc_sharealike|cc_noncommercial|cc_nonderived)

the faces of whatever.

and the image rights parameter is quite interesting for those who use google 
image search in serious work. i've incorporated both those parameters as 
configurable options in dbCinema. dbCinema lets you configure most of the 
parameters you can configure at 
http://images.google.com/advanced_image_search

porcelain,
ja
