Image Color Summarizer

RGB, HSV, LCH & Lab image color statistics and clustering—simple and easy

Download

This is a command line tool — there is no interface. If you are unfamiliar with unpacking archives or using the command line in either Linux or Windows, please Google the topic or problem you're having. I do not provide support to get the software going.

The online version of the summarizer uses slightly different settings for clustering than the default settings in the downloadable version. To make the downloaded version perform in the same way, use

# etc/colorsummarizer.conf
<cluster>
space = lab
n     = 5
maxn  = 10
pass  = 25
</cluster>
