colordistance: Distance Metrics for Image Color Similarity

Loads and displays images, selectively masks specified background colors, bins pixels by color using either data-dependent or automatically generated color bins, quantitatively measures color similarity among images using one of several distance metrics for comparing pixel color clusters, and clusters images by object color similarity. Originally written for use with organism coloration (reef fish color diversity, butterfly mimicry, etc), but easily applicable for any image set.
