Welcome to Color Sorting
The wiki for professionals in the fields of paint, light, vision and other fields that care about color. For current updates and projects please visit Forum:Watercooler
667 articles since June 2008!
Can anyone contribute? Yes! Please Help! Although this site is mostly for professionals in color, this is a huge project and there is plenty that can be done by people who aren't professionals and all help would be appreciated. These are the best ways that anyone may contribute and help:
Please don't be sloppy. I have noticed a lot of sloppiness lately. If you don't know, leave it blank. Do not feel obligated to fill every field. For example, I saw one entry saying that the color was named after dark blue. Colors are named after people, or objects, or events, or abstract concepts. Colors are not named after dark blue. Please be more careful.
- Find photos and pictures that illustrate color. Although it may be nearly impossible to find pictures for some colors such as the color Jeffrey, most colors can be found with only a small amount of searching. Seek out photos of plants and animals for colors such as Teal, Yam, or Walnut. Other colors such as Umber, Titanium, and Klein are paints and dyes that are fairly well known amongst artist.
- Clean up the technicalities. Many professionals in color are not professionals in computer language or technical language. Any help automating this wiki or fixing glitches would be appreciated.
- Contribute trivia. Any information about the color or its history or etymology would be appreciated.
