Stock photography platform Shutterstock has introduced a new image-discovery tool called Palette as part of its experimental Labs initiative.

Palette is touted as a tool for designers and creatives to identify relevant photos based around curated palettes. You can also customize your own palette by choosing multiple colors and finding images accordingly, and you can of course refine by keywords relevant to the subject matter.

It’s a nice touch for sure, as a photo’s general color scheme is a key factor in determining its suitability for use in many online properties, and this adds another key parameter to the search mix.
