Color Codes: digitized color to record and compare

The two major usages

1. Assigning a color code to a giving color. So the color can be saved in a digital form, and be shared among others. The original color
can be restored from the digital color code by many computer applications. Example applications of this usage include digitizing a
color of an object and taking the digital code to a paint shop to buy paints.

2. Coding an image with a color. This is useful in cases where colors can be used to replace text and labels to represent an object
or a image. In grocery stores, scanning fruits and vegetables directly, as opposed to scanning bar codes, to obtain information about the
prices and origins can save labor costs and other related operation costs.

Easy to follow simple steps
There are two image windows to show the picture preview and picture captured, respectively. Tapping on the preview window is the trigger
for the camera to take a picture. Two radio buttons correspond to two operation modes. When IMAGE OF COLOR is checked, there are red
frames in both preview and captured windows to show the area the color code is calulated. The red frame in the preview is designed to let
an user to carefully select the color area to avoid any shades and lighting variations. The resluts can be varified in the captured window.

To obtain a digital color code, users should check IMAGE OF COLOR, and take a picture of the color. The color code is displayed in the
COLOR CODE. To compensate the lighting conditions, we suggest users take a picture of white object under the same conditions as used for
the picture of the color, obtain the color code of white and Use the formula to calculate the rgb valus: r=r(color)/r(white)*255;
g=g(color)/g(white)*255; b=b(color)/b(white)*255.

To bring up a image when picturing a special color, users need to save both the color and the image first. A user would first check IMAGE OF
COLOR and take a picture of the color to obtain the color code, then check IMAGE OF LABEEL and take a picture of the image, and finally click
button to save both color code and the image. Next time, when the user take a picture of the same color, the image will automatically displayed.
One of applications of the app is in grocery stores. In stead of putting barcode labels on each fruit, cashers can just take a picture of
the fruit which will display the barcode on the phone, and scan the barcode on the phone. Using this app, farmers and stores could save expenses
on barcodes and the labor to put barcodes on the products.
