In a picture, there are many different colors. How can I just want to find the position of one color. In the following picture, if I would like to find the coordinates of the position of blue, how can I achieve that? Thank you very much! enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ By Blue you mean RGBColor[0,0,1]? Is PixelValuePositions ok? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Kuba I think that is a good answer. image = Import["1wEvU.jpg"]; PixelValuePositions[image, Blue, 0.4] gave me {{1605, 810}, {1606, 810}, {1604, 809}, {1605, 809}, ... $\endgroup$

$\begingroup$
image = Import["http://i.stack.imgur.com/1wEvU.jpg"];

Look for anything within 0.3 of Blue:

pv = PixelValuePositions[image, Blue, .3]

{{1614, 784}}

Just one pixel is that close to pure Blue. To display it:

HighlightImage[image, pv, "HighlightColor" -> White, 
  Method -> {"DiskMarkers", 20}]

It's over by the Balloon(?).

    $\begingroup$ Ooh, I've never come across HighlightImage before. +1, but why is it community wiki? $\endgroup$ Oct 31, 2013 at 10:35

  • $\begingroup$ @cormullion Can PixelValuePositions be used to find some "strange" color? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @kathyLL any color will work, if you know its RGB values. But strangeness needs defining! :) $\endgroup$
