I noticed when I search on the term "rainbow" and I am looking for images of actual rainbows in the sky, that the search results also show heaps of things that are not rainbows, but are rainbow-coloured eg. paint charts, coloured ink etc. Would it be possible to have the term "rainbow" assigned 2 meanings, one being an actual rainbow that is caused by light refracting through water droplets in the sky, and the other being multi-coloured?

There's already a keyword for multi coloured.


Unless the ink.paint etc is arranged in a rainbow shape and/or with the correct red orange yellow green blue indigo violet colour scheme it's really not an appropriate keyword, in my view. (I've got at least one photo of a rainbow in my port if you want it!)

If you search within that rainbow search using weather, you get a much more appropriate collection of real rainbows in the sky.

Good suggestion. I have several images with objects in a rainbow pattern.
