Color Swatch App



I came across this app the other day and thought I would share. 
It can really be helpful if you are trying to find colors to use in a room. 
It's a Sherwin Williams app called Color Snap.






It works on my iPad and iPhone but I think it will work with any smart phone.

You can take a picture using the app or you can use a photo you already have.




Then you hold your finger over an area to find a color.





And keep adding colors that you want to include in your palette.


When you save them it comes up with paint samples. 

These are the 3 colors I picked. But Im not liking the last one too well.




No problem, I can adjust any of the colors by lightness, hue or saturation!
You can scroll left of right for more colors. 




There, a little less peachy!

Isn't that cool?

I'm still fiddling with it but I think I can be really usefull.
Let me now if you try it out. 
Oh, and it's free!




Now to get on track with that kitchen!

  7. That is cool. I was reluctant to download one more useless app. But that looks like one I would use, thanks for sharing. And, how's the kitchen coming along? I've been wondering about you.
