Pick Your Colors
With the launch of our new virtual room painter tool, we have enabled anyone searching for the perfect color to try paint colors and palettes without visiting a paint store or lifting a brush. Powered by proprietary technology and created by PPG’s award-winning developers, the tool provides a realistic color preview and is now available.
Test colors faster thanks to intuitive “edge-detect” functionality, which quickly and automatically finds and maps the ends of a wall within a photo. Say "so long" to the days of using tools to draw lines or to select specific surfaces in photos to colorize them. Once you select your color choices, simply touch or click on the photo for quick digital painting. The tool also provides an edit function for exact precision.

3 Best Online Paint Visualizers
Sherwin Williams ColorSnap Paint Visualizer
Sherwin-Williams' famous logo "Cover the Earth" is fairly close to reality. With well over 4,500 locations, Sherwin-Williams probably has a store near to you. This allows you to act on any color inspirations that may strike you when working with the Sherwin Williams ColorSnap Paint Visualizer for the web, Android, iPhone, or iPad.
For many homeowners and designers, a paint company is only as good as its partnerships. If this is the case for you, then you will enjoy the associations that Sherwin-Williams has with Pottery Barn, West Elm, and HGTV Home.
For a nearly professional-level paint visualizer, Sherwin-Williams' drag-and-drop paint palette may be just what you need. Sherwin-Williams ColorSnap requires registration if you want to save a room. But the visualizer is refreshingly quiet about registration, allowing you to paint prepared rooms with no interruptions.
To avoid the contrast between your expected color and the true wall color, Sherwin-Williams has integrated its proprietary Precision Advanced Color Matching Technology with ColorSnap. This ensures greater color accuracy and consistency.
Paint cabinets virtually
7 apps that help find the perfect shade of paint for your home
Painting a home is a lengthy job. Aside from the work of actually putting paint on the walls, you have to test out which color feels right to you. That often means heading down to a store, getting samples, painting those on to a surface and waiting to see if the drying color suits you or not.
These apps simplify that entire process by using digital technology, to virtually apply paint to whatever surface you choose: a wall or even the exterior of your home — all without cracking open a can of paint. While there are apps and devices that can help you match a color to a can of paint, these apps actually let you apply the paint directly to your wall. Some of these are from major paint companies, and clearly make use of their line of paint. Other are single apps you can download to your smartphone that can give you more of a sense of color. All, however, are free.
Sherwin-Williams — ColorSnap Visualizer
Sherwin-Williams ColorSnap Visualizer appSherwin-Williams
This app is actually computer based, meaning you're not going to download it to your smartphone. Instead, you start by using one of their sample photos, or uploading your own. Sherwin-Williams suggests you take one with good lighting so you can get the best sense of how color will look on the walls.
You can pick one of their color collection suggestions in the ColorSnap Visualizer, pick any color you want from Sherwin-Williams catalog or match up a color from a photo you've taken. The color palette is a nice option, because you can also get a range of complimentary hues for trim.
There are limitations on the number of areas you can try the virtual paint process on in a room. In one kitchen, for example, we could paint some cabinets, not all. But the app is certainly fun to play with, and a decent starting point if you're a Sherwin-Williams fan.
Behr — Color Smart app
Behr Color Smart app lets you match color from other imagesBehr
While you can't upload your own image to the Behr Color Smart app, you can test colors in a gallery of pre-picked images.
The Behr app works on both iOS and Android phones, and you can match colors from photos in your photos, or pick one of Behr's 2500 colors in its catalog. Behr is The Home Depot's brand of paint, so you'll end up taking your test images there, along with your virtual swatches to pick up your paint.
Prestige — Color Pic
You can order paints from Prestige ColorPic app directly through AmazonPrestige
An iOS and Android app, Prestige ColorPic lets you take an image of your space, upload it, and then start painting virtually on your walls. There are thousands of paint colors to choose from in the app, and you can compare them to paints from big brands including Behr, Benjamin Moore, Sherwin-Williams and more.
Key, though, is you can order the Prestige Paint, which is an acrylic latex base, directly through the app, and its sent via Amazon. In fact Prestige says it has an exclusive deal with the online retailer, sending all the paint via 2-day Prime.
The Home Depot — ProjectColor app
Choose the paint color of the year or scroll through Pinterest from the ProjectColor appThe Home Depot
An iOS and Android app, ProjectColor can match colors, find colors in its catalog and crucially let you virtually paint them in your space. The app even lets you check out current trends, like the paint color of the year, or scroll through Pinterest — from The Home Depot app — for more color ideas.
Finally, you can also purchase paint from The Home Depot directly in the app and never have to leave the house at all. (Not a bad option in today's environment.)
McCormick Paints — Color Visualizer
You can select different colors for walls and trim through the McCormick Paints Color Visualizer appMcCormick
McCormick Paints lets you choose a standard generic interior home image of a bedroom, hallway, kitchen or dining room and then change the color around on the walls. You can also upload your own photo to its Color Visualizer, which we suggest as that's ideally what you want to see, how paint looks in your own space. You can even add paint to trim, like window frames and doors.
There's a full spectrum, of colors to choose, and the tool will even pick out complementary or coordinating colors for trim points if you want. And finally, you can save the image and download it, which lets you share your ideas with others.
PPG Paint — Color Visualizer
The PPG Paint Color Visualizer gives you the name and number of the paint you've selected to make ordering simplePPG Paint
Although this shares the same name as the tool from McCormick Paints, we found this Color Visualizer one much more simple to use. You select from a number of standard images, a bedroom, kitchen or even the exterior or your home, for example, and then start applying color swatches. You can, here, also upload your own image to get a sense of how paint will play in your home.
What we liked about this site's app was the fact that the actual paint swatches gave us the chip, color and number so we could order the exact color of paint if we chose. We also had options to look at all colors available, pick from a select palette, or even match colors from an existing photo. You can order your paint directly from the app too.
We were also able to pick different colors for different walls — a trend we notice more and more in homes. All in all, a very easy and fun app to try.
Paint My Place
The Paint My Place app lets you pick from brands including Benjamin Moore and Farrow and Ball.Paint My Place
This app works on smartphones, both iOS and Android devices, and can help you virtually add paint to almost anything from a wall, to a piece of furniture. You start by taking a photo of the thing you hope to paint, and from there you can pick colors from 25 different brands from Benjamin Moore to Farrow and Ball. (A personal favorite.)
What's particularly nice about Paint My Place is you can actually increase or decrease the opacity of the paint you're applying so you can see what extra coats may look like. When done, download the image and share it or bring it with you to a paint store — with the actual name of the paint and brand you want to buy.
After you've selected the best paint for your home, you can then check out our roundup of apps that can help you find the best place to put a TV. Or perhaps you're looking for a complete makeover, and then may find use for our set of AR home decorating apps you can also use to arrange wallpaper, furniture or just see where the best natural lighting is in your home.
Free DIY Mobile Apps to Test Paint Colors Using Your Room Photos
Happy Memorial Day! What a wonderful holiday weekend, remembering those who have sacrificed for our American freedoms and starting the summer off right. And if one of your summer projects involves a new coat of paint for your walls — we can help! We’ve previously shared 100 ways to paint your walls, and a couple of weeks ago we shared some amazing computer apps that can help you virtually try out a paint color. Today we’re sharing more apps to test paint colors, but these are for your phone (or tablet)! We tested a few other apps, but these are the ones we found worth mentioning. (And we have a couple more virtual paint color posts with more helpful apps, too!)
All of these mobile apps allow you to use *your own photos* meaning that you can get an idea of how a paint color will actually look in your room, in your home — not just a gorgeous stock photo. Like before, you’ll get better results if you have a clear, well-lit photo with minimal distractions against the wall. Especially if you’ll be redecorating, clear the wall to get a better virtual paint sample. But if you’ll be leaving Grandma’s hutch there, it’s okay to leave it for the photo, too.
And remember — even if these apps only give you certain brands, any paint color formula can be mixed in any brand, so don’t let that limit you!
These apps were given a test drive on both Android (Galaxy S5) and Apple (iPhone6) where available.
This post is part of a series about great painting and paint color tips. You can see the other posts here:
DIY Mobile Apps to Test Paint Colors
Paint Harmony for Android
Get it:Google Play (pro upgrade available, 99 cents)
- Test paint color on multiple surfaces using your own photo
- Benjamin Moore Classic and Behr Premium Plus colors (upgrade to pro, 99 cents, for more options)
- Easy to use, although a little bit trickier to pick paint colors
- Wall auto-selection is very good
This app was my favorite on Android, and it’s one that I will leave on my phone, for fun — and one that I would definitely feel alright about spending 99 cents on to get more color options, if I was wanting to test out more. Easy to use, and virtually no “clean-up” required to get a good match on the area to paint.
Paint Tester for Android
Paint Tester for iPhone
Get it:Google Play // iTunes (iPhone/iPad, pro upgrade available)
- Apply paint colors to your own room photo
- Good for iPhone, lacking options for Android
- Only RGB values of paints, not matched to brand/hue
This app is okay for Android, but much more robust and useful for iPhone. The Android app is very limited — there’s only a slider to choose colors, which makes it very hard to get a good color match — so I’d say meh for Android users. The iPhone app, on the other hand, offers many more features (even in the free version that we tested). You can choose a color from a photo of your choice or from a palette, and then select your own room photo to apply the color too. The default wall selection is decent, and there’s a slider to adjust how much of the wall you want the color to cover. You can also achieve a more accurate result by using tools such as brush, eraser, and tape, if you’re willing to put in the time.
Paint My Place for iPhone
Paint My Place
Get it:iTunes (upgrade available, $2.99)
- Use your photo to test paint colors
- Images cropped to square
- Not all features showed or worked for me (free version)
- Repeated upgrade invitations were frustrating
I really wanted to like this app, but the free version was a little disappointing and I’m not sure I’d invest $2.99 to upgrade and unlock additional features (even after being asked after every step). It’s well-reviewed, though, so maybe I was just having a bad night!
Dulux Visualizer for Android
Dulux Visualizer for iPhone
Get it:Google Play // iTunes (iPhone/iPad)
- Try paint colors on your own LIVE camera feed
- Image and color quality is lacking, but kind of a fun app
This app threw me for a loop (thus the garish color choices!) — you don’t upload a photo, but rather it pulls directly from your camera. So you can choose a paint color, apply it to the wall, and then walk around your house for a little virtually painted tour. Not super useful since you have to be in the room you want to paint (as opposed to lounging, traveling, etc) but a fun app nonetheless.
My Room Painter for Android
My Room Painter for iPhone
My Room Painter (from Crown)
Get it: Google Play // iTunes (iPhone/iPad)
- Virtually paint walls, wood, or metal to update interior and exterior
- Easy and accurate paint application
- Better on iPhone than Android
This is another app that is better for iPhone users than for Android. Both apps worked, but I ran across several glitches in the Android app in just a few minutes of using it. You can select your color from the library or from your own photo, and then easily apply it to an area of the photo. Different areas are easily differentiated, and the app overall is easy to use.
Mitre10 Virtual Wall Painter for Android
Mitre10 Virtual Wall Painter
Get it:Google Play
- Easy to use, effective for testing out colors
- Limited colors
The color selection on this app was quite limited, but the app itself was easy to use and effective.
Honorable Mention: ColorSnap Studio by Sherwin-Williams
(added 6/6/15) I didn’t have an iPad to test this, but ColorSnap Studio for iPad will let you test paint colors on your own photos as well.
Honorable Mention: Valspar Color Connect
Get it:iTunes (iPhone/iPad)
- Browse colors and connect with a Valspar professional for help in mocking up a room
This is kind of a bonus and outlier, since this app doesn’t allow you to test colors yourself. Instead, you can live chat or email someone at Valspar to tell them what you’re looking for and send them a photo, and they will do the virtual painting for you. A nice feature if that’s the kind of help you want!
