Does there exist software that can classify a large set of digital photos based on color?

I have a few hundred / thousand photos that I have taken over the years. I would like to classily them by color; for example, I want to select the 20 most red photos and the 20 most green photos. (My plan is to print out these photos and have streaks of color in my apartment). Google images currently has this function as part of its search, but is there a free or cheap way to do this on my Mac?

Best answer: Picasa (google's free photo software) will do that -

Bunge is right. Picasa is the best option. Mac version here: http://picasa.google.com/mac/

My thought was to upload them to a blog, submit the blog to the google bot and then image search:


Then select the color you wish.

But, Picasa seems the better route. :)

Response by poster: I have too many photos to upload them to a blog.

Deep seems perfect but is a bit pricey (ie > $0). Picasa will work nicely! Thanks!
