Desktop: Visit http://www.ppgpittsburghpaints.com/color/virtually-paint-a-room and click the link to ‘Virtually Paint a Room’
Hit the ‘Projects’ tab and the upload a photo or photo’s of the room/s you’d like to paint.
Name this project and then save it by registering your email address. Once you’re registered, your projects will be saved, so if you’re not 100% sure you’ve picked the right colours, you can sleep on it and refine your choices at a later date.
Map (click on) the surfaces you’d like to paint. You can add multiple (numbered) surfaces by clicking the ‘+’ icon. Each numbered surface corresponds to a different surface area, or colour that you’ll be painting. Mask the surfaces you’d like to keep the same. A good tip here is to select areas of each surface that have light cast on them, which will ensure that the software doesn’t recognise this as a different colour/surface to be painted. For example – without the 2 tags at the botton right of the turquise wall in the image below – the software will not pick these up along with the darker shades.
This is where the fun begins! Click the ‘Add’ (+) icon to browse for colours you like. Once you’ve chosen a few, you can start visualizing how each of them might look in your room.
Use the Tool Tips under the Information Icon to help you here. To add colour to a surface – click and drag a colour onto one of your numbered surfaces. Keep choosing different colours to get the desired look. Snapshot and save each version of your project for reference later on. You can even sample colours from other photos to use in your projects and find complementary colours simply by clicking a button! Play around a little and before you know it, you’ll be an expert virtual room painter!
