Word Color

Calculate the color associated with an image by averaging the images when searching for this word

Word color is the third iteration of this idea. The first iteration just scraped Google. Then Google launched a json based image search API, so the project moved to that. Then Google shut that API down. Now it is based on the image search API of Getty Images

The idea is pretty simple. Enter a word in the form below and the page will ask Getty for the top 9 images. It averages the color for each of them and then keeps the hue (to avoid everything turning gray or brown). Voila, the color associated with that word according to the internet.
