Is there a thread/site with pics of all the color/coat variations?

I have read and read the threads here about colors and coats and just when I think I understand I realized I missed something and everything I thought I just read was really something else. Is there a "for dummies" site or thread that maybe has pics? Something like, "this is a black and tan" "this is a blanket back" etc and then maybe bullet points under each of the basic requirements of each?

Another question...is there something similar that shows the pattern types (ie blanket back, saddle back, etc so I can compare visually those to the ones on that site and understand better? Did I mention I am the person for whom those "... for Dummies" books are written?

I just think that solid black, black sable, red sable and bi-color are absolutely stunning. I would love to have one of each.
