15.6 - Checkmate
In many chess sets, black and white pieces move across a black and white checkered board. Read a book that is at least 80% black, white, and/or grey according to TinEye. Directions for using TinEye can be found in post 2 of the Help thread.
Required: State the percentages of black, white, and grey (added together) and include the cover when you post.

To use TinEye

• Navigate to the main page of the book you've chosen
• Right click on the picture of your book (as-is on the main book page)
• Choose "copy image address" or just "copy"
• Paste the image address in the box that says "enter image URL"
• As an alternative, you may drag-and-drop your cover image onto the TinEye page. Or, you can choose "open image in a new tab" (or window) and copy the URL in the address bar and paste that into TinEye.
• Go to https://labs.tineye.com/color/
• Click "extract colors"
• Scroll down and uncheck the box that says "exclude background color from extracted colors," if it is checked
• Add the percentages listed beside any color that has black, white, or grey in parentheses beside it

Example: (add the percentages that have been bolded)
The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1) by Suzanne Collins Total black/white/grey = 87.2%
#0e0000 68.5 % Black (Black)
#282829 10.3 % Bokara Grey (Grey)
#f1ebeb 8.4 % Hint Of Red (Grey)
#ab8888 2.8 % Thatch (Brown)
#dc972b 2.5 % Buttercup (Yellow)
#b8712c 2.5 % Meteor (Orange)
#8c5f2a 1.5 % Rusty Nail (Brown)
#553333 1.5 % Van Cleef (Brown)
#4e3525 1.1 % Indian Tan (Brown)
#ebb738 0.8 % Bright Sun (Yellow)

Marie (UK) (mazza1) | 2749 comments Can I ask if you should unclick the background colours options:-
Exclude background color from extracted colors

Exclude interior background color from extracted colors

I have this book Consequences (Consequences, #1) by Aleatha Romig

with background colours excluded I get this

#fdfcfb 84.9 % Snow (White)
#e77c68 3.5 % Geraldine (Red)
#e8ae9e 3.5 % Wax Flower (Brown)
#ec4635 3.5 % Cinnabar (Red)
#e86451 2.4 % Flamingo (Orange)
#e38c7c 2.2 % Dark Salmon (Pink)

with the two background colour options ticked I get this

#e77c68 23.5 % Geraldine (Red)
#e8ae9e 23.1 % Wax Flower (Brown)
#ec4635 23.0 % Cinnabar (Red)
#e86451 16.2 % Flamingo (Orange)
#e38c7c 14.3 % Dark Salmon (Pink)


to the naked eye the book seems like it should fit

From the directions for using TinEye in post # 2
Scroll down and uncheck the box that says "exclude background color from extracted colors," if it is checked


ALSO ... while it isn't explicitly stated in the directions, be sure you are copying the cover image from the books MAIN PAGE.
