    It was not a total guess. I made the assumption that color and letter together made a unique symbol. I also assumed since there were two lines, it was both a first and last name. So I assigned letters to the symbols and fed "ABCDAEF GDDH" into a cryptogram search engine. There were very few plausible first names; Georgia, Roberta, Ricardo, etc. I made a list of the first names that had plausible last names and searched for them in wikipedia. Only one author came up, so that was my guess.

    Default oh well i guess u just found a shortcut then lol

    the way it was coded is that those colors have uniqe qualities such as the hue the amount of green blue red etc and the saturation these numbers made up the coded message the letter on each colored tile told you wheter i wanted the sat number or the hue number or whatever these numbers made up the name timothy good i will have to think more carefully with my next code good work by the way

    also i didnt realize you guys were using software to help crack codes
    i dont mind and have nothing against this but if you guys could tell me what softwares your using then i would be greatfull
