    This research presents a new color selection interface that facilitates query-by-color in Content-Based Image Retrieval (CBIR). Existing CBIR color selection interfaces, are being judged as non-intuitive and difficult to use. Our interface copes with these problems of usability. It is based on 11 color categories, used by all people, while thinking of and perceiving color. In addition, its usability is supported by Fitts' law. The design of the color selection interface provides fast, unambiguous, intuitive, and accurate color selection.
