How can I pick a key colour in an image file in an automated way?

Recently I am sure I saw a script or action that analysed an image file and instead of generating the average colour, looked for a key colour (for example a logo colour) and provided that colour value. For example it might look at this image and give you the blue or the pink rather than a beige / skin tone average. Does this sound familiar?

Design advice needed! Odd picture size inside a standard picture frame.

20 3/4" (w) x 28" (h) poster, can't afford to custom frame it. Which is better: 1) a standard 22x28 frame, with a little extra space (or matting) along the width of the poster; 2) a 24x30 frame with 1 1/2" mat on either side and 1" of mat at top and bottom each? [more inside]

Like a library but with sign-out fees.

I'm looking for some software that will help me manage a small artwork rental business.

Any suggestions? [more inside]

Help me find this painting

Years ago I saw a painting in a newspaper with an accompanying article. I really liked the painting and made a vague mental note to look up more online but never actually did. As I recall, the painting was called something like "The Pioneers" and it was very detailed semi-futuristic buildings on the side of a cliff. I'd like to find it or the artist again. [more inside]

How can I collect old, accurately represented painting on a budget?

I'd like to start collecting art. I know, collect what you love - and I intend to. This is for my home, though if the pieces also have financial value down the road, so much the better. I really like older, typically Renaissance or Medieval portraits or action-filled landscapes (particularly those that feature animals (e.g. da Vinci's Lady with Ermine). As a non-expert with a budget of <$500-$2000, how do I go about buying interesting art without being fleeced? [more inside]

Where should I get a poster framed in San Francisco?

Can you recommend a framer in San Francisco? I am going out there at the end of May for my aunt's 60th birthday, and the present I'd like to give her is a large poster, framed. I do not wish to travel with the framed poster, nor ship it already framed, so I was thinking I could contact a good framer out there, ship the rolled poster in a mailing tube, and pick it up when I arrive in SF. Does this sound like a good plan, and who would you recommend?

Need professional printing from Pages.

I can't find a professional printer in the Chattanooga area who can print a flyer done on a Mac, in Pages. What are my options? I really have no way to do this flyer, other than on a Mac, and I made this flyer for someone who lives in Chattanooga TN, and has been unable to find a printer who has a Mac. Is there a way to convert this POS to PDF or something equally stupid and pedestrian?

American Frame - but Canadian, eh?

I'm posting this for my sister. She is looking for a company like American Frame but which is based in Canada. She loves what they do but shipping into Canada (along with the brokerage fees involved) is too expensive. She wants to be able to order a kit like they provide (4 sections of framing material, 'glass' etc) from someplace in Canada. It has to exist but my google-fu has failed me (and hers is much weaker than mine)
