Let's compare these 3 similar colors:
Paint color #1:
Paint color #2:
These two colors are very similar to each other, but create completely different moods in the room. This is very hard to visualize when looking at a little strip of color you picked up at the store.
Paint color #3:
You get the idea. It's not that easy to tell what a paint will look like once applied to a whole room. Unless you're going to give up and paint everything white, you need some help.
Paintfinder helps you pick the perfect paint
Welcome to PaintFinder. This is a software program designed to overcome the problems of visualizing what a given paint is going to look like.
PaintFinder lets you choose paints from the major paint manufacturers in the US. You can select any or all of the manufacturers paints, and you can compare the offerings right on the screen.
You get to play around with different combinations of paint and trim and you can see what they look like together, right on screen, before ever going to the store. This makes the job of selecting the right paint very easy.
This simple program takes the guesswork out of choosing the right color for your basement.
But my basement is dark — how do I know what the paint color will look like?
Basement colors are a somewhat tricky thing. That's because they tend to receive little natural light. Many basements are lit only by artificial light. Where there are windows in the basement, they create dark and light areas, making it hard to predict what the painted wall is going to look like.
Paintfinder includes a selection of photos, all of them from basements, and with varying degrees of light and dark. You can switch between photos, some dark, some light, and see what a paint is going to look like in the different lighting situations.
This paint ("Neutral Brown", by Ralph Lauren) looks much lighter in the first photo than it does in the second photo. This is due to the different lighting conditions. In the second photo it doesn't even look like it's the same paint, but it is. PaintFinder allows you to predict these situations and judge the color accordingly. This can help you avoid any nasty surprises.

Match your wife's eye color and watch her glow
PaintFinder also includes a little extra feature. It allows you to select any color from anywhere on your screen. This means you can take a picture of your wife's eyes, open it on your computer, and match the exact color in the image.
This goes beyond your wife's eyes. You can match her favorite shoes, your barbecue grill, your corvette, the dog's tail, whatever floats your boat. Anything you can get a digital image of on your computer - you can find the perfect paint to match it.
