You can now narrow results by color in image search! (like in picasa):
Example:
http://images.google.com/images?imgcolor=yellow&hl=en&q=ferrari
http://images.google.com/images?imgcolor=red&hl=en&q=ferrari

(seen at twitter)

Cool! All of these additions and filters are making Google Images an amazing search companion.

I think it did fairly well, all the pics with Red in them DID have lots of blue also...

As James said, there is a lot of that colour in the picture.

I was going to say "It looks for the colour theres the most of, it can't tell what the picture is of", but then I realised theres the face search, so maybe they could look for the shape of a car and tell what colour it is :/

Where did you see this on Twitter? When I posted about the feature, no other page mentioned it.

Good job uncovering this Ionut.

Wonder what else could be done in terms of image search types and restrictions?
