I read Ben Nadel's recent ColdFusion post on Exploring Color Histograms In GraphicsMagick And Lucee CFML 184.108.40.206 and thought I'd compare it with ImageMagick.
ImageMagick returns a list of color data in a low-to-high order. I used ReMatch to identify the hex colors via regex, generated an array and then reversed it.
NOTE: I wanted to compare performance using Ben's script, but his "Lucee CFML" script wasn't written to be compatible with ColdFusion 2016. :(
colors = extractPalette(imagePath, numberOfColors);

I came across some similar things in various ImageMagick forums when I was looking into this. I wonder if the
-define histogram:unique-colors=trueis part of why I am not getting results that I love. GraphicsMagick doesn't seem to have an equivalent setting.
On various color palette posts, I did see that some people were calculating the "distance" between colors to help figure out a palette. But, I am not so good at maths ... or understanding color theory :D Part of me is like, let me just show the top 30 colors and let the user pick out whatever they like.
