Does anyone know how to use GD Library to find the dominate color in an image other then black & white? Thank you.

google is your friend.
Did I help you? Feeling generous? Buy me lunch! 
Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)

lol google will take over the world. Thank you for your help

Any idea how I would check for shades of black and white so I can exclude them? There can be so many different shades so if you find an easier way let me know ;)

It's slightly more complex to find the shades. One option could be to convert the current pixels colour from RGB to HSV and compare the saturation and value to a threshold, if it is within that threshold, don't include it in the array.
