Get and weight colors from image

I don't know the first thing about image processing and working with images in C#, so I'm looking for a solution or someone to point me in the direction of a solution that may solve what we are trying to do.

We want people to be able to upload a base picture and derive the colors from it.  Once the colors are derived, we need them to be weighted, i.e.:
#F3ACD4 makes up 23%
#754A8E makes up 18%
etc. up to 100%

Then based on those percentages, we need to assign those to certain values in a style sheet to compose a color scheme for a web page.

Is this possible?

You could use a Hashtable (2003) or Dictionary<string, int> (2005) to count the occurrences of the color.   C# has the ability to quickly get information about an image that VB.NET doesn't have.
