New gallery search feature

Thanks for reading the latest blog post! The last post highlighted the parallax feature (check it out if you haven't already) and we've had a lot of positive feedback showing how eager many of you are to try it out. We will have a tutorial at launch to fully explain the process, and show you how to create your own parallax images. Here in the office, we can't wait to see the submissions rolling in!

This week, we'd like to highlight one of the new search features that we feel will become a handy tool for artists looking for inspiration or a tonal guide.

As you can see above, there is a Color option next to Type.

Click on this and you'll be presented with a color swatch. Perhaps you're coloring your grayscale image and want to check out how other artists have balanced their blues and purples, so you choose a violet color to search by.

Through this search function, you can quickly get an idea of how a certain color has been used, and the kind of contrasting colors that work well to create a harmonious image.

When selecting your color, you can also choose the percentage of color saturation that must be present in the discovered images.

We hope you find this tool useful! We still have more to reveal over the coming weeks. Schedule-wise, the launch is a bit behind, largely because of the amount of content already on 3dtotal that will need migrating over, and working out the best way to manage that, but additionally, there's just so much that's new that it's taking a while to code everything from scratch. We're not far off though, so stay tuned!
