A flexible framework for color representation is developed with the goal of lending perceptual or context specific meaning to visual content. Any given color representation in this framework consists of a set of definable base colors chosen from an underlying tri-chromatic color system. The mathematical foundation of the framework allows for a simple yet powerful assessment of visual similarity. A specific color representation within this framework is devised with the objective of enhancing content-based retrieval applications involving photographic content. Examples are presented and discussed.
