I had to edit the brightness of the picture using iphone8
For capturing a color of my siding I took a picture of a large area that was in the shade with bright sun light reflecting off adjacent surfaces. When I used the color capture feature, all paints came out too dark when held up to the vinyl siding. So, I increased the brightness of the photo using Photos until I could hold up my iPhone to the siding using color capture and the brightness was the same. I found 2 good matches. Now, I will get some samples and find out if the matches are real.
Note that I turned up the brightness on my IPhone to max before I started this exercise.
Good idea- But app doesn’t work well
The idea is great, but the functionality of app is worthless. Here’s why:
1. I downloaded and used app for 15 minutes during which the app crashed 3 times. Had to reopen and start over again continuously.
2. Taking photos and allowing app to access certain photos worked fine. When looking over color swatches, the names of colors weren’t available to see (you’re going on small color swatch alone). Once you click on a color and it takes you to your chosen photo, there isn’t anyway to “undo” or “page back” if you don’t want that color.
E. G.- I accidentally tapped on one color swatch a few times because no names are given (until color is selected) and I wasn’t sure “which black color” in that row that I had already looked at. I didn’t realize I had selected the same color until I clicked on it and then I could see the color name. I had to exit out of the picture completely and restart process just to choose another color.
3. “Painting” the color onto photo. The tech is ok. It does leave a white outer line around “painted area”, so that can be distracting. I also had an actual paint swatch on the wall, so it had a white line around that swatch too.
4. Overall- the inability to go back to color sample options from photo (having to restart process over again & again) and the continually crashing makes this app not useful.
Could Use Modifications
I’m finding that it’s almost impossible for an app that will allow you to virtually paint a room. I want to paint an “attic” cape cod room a dark green but not sure if I want to paint the whole room or just some of the walls. I was hoping an app would somewhat let me visualize my options. This app isn’t great as in, it can’t identify the walls. It generates very blotchy and you would need to put the paint density all the way up to completely fill the walls. Which then over fills lots of areas you don’t want paint including the floor, annoying, but not a big deal. I figured I’d just use the eraser to clean it up and get the general idea of what I was going for. This is where I just gave up..... the eraser is in the shape of a circle and doesn’t operate like most erasers in programs. While held down to erase it creates “circle stamps” instead of a straight line. You won’t be able to erase a straight edge....it’ll look scalloped.
