Having a bit of trouble getting the following code to work - I get a completely white image. That doesn't seem correct.... any ideas why?

>>> cm = ColorModel()
>>> cm.add(color.RED)
>>> cm.add(color.BLUE)
>>> result = cm.threshold(Image("lenna")

So there are two things to realize about the color model class. First, you need to feed a bunch of colors to have it recognize what you want. Second it returns pixels in the model as black, and pixels not in the model as white, this is to support the default behavior in find blobs. You can use the invert command to fix this really quickly. We are going to fix this in SimpleCV 2.0

Here is an example:

cm = ColorModel()
img = Image('lenna')
out = cm.threshold(img)

Here is the result.
