Code #1

Observations

Looking at the first and last tiles we can see 3 different colours.
This is screaming for a cipher using 2 distinct bits and the 3rd one as a spacer.
But looking at the other tiles a fourth colour is added.

[hint]Maybe the tiles need to be rearranged in a way the yellow blocks become invisible![/hint]

Code #2

Observations

Look carefully, there is one thing that is different for each flower

[hint]The colours of the petals are the key to the solve[/hint]

Code #3

Observations

A rectangle of 34×3. We know of a cipher that uses a height of 3.

[hint]Look at the distribution of the red and blue tiles[/hint]

Code #4

Observations

[4] up-and-down.jpg
up-and-down

Colours looks like an obvious split. Some are going up some down !

[hint]Counting the dots on the first 2 tiles gives 6 and 9 which gives FI which is a good start for FIVE. Now why some are going down ?[/hint]

Code #5

Observations

Well everyone knows that game. The width seems also nice.

[hint]Width is 8 long which indicates the encode. The hint you need to replace the colours is in the filename.[/hint]

Code #6

Observations

26 pieces at the top of the image

Code # 7

Observations

[7] blocks2.jpg

Seems like the same index as code #6 but with a different twist

[hint]Some are high, some are low and some are flat but the last blue piece looks like a sign and give it away[/hint]
