OMG I just discovered something that is probably going to make me repaint my whole house. I was on a blog this morning and someone was writing about Sherwin Williams having this tool call ChipIt. You go to their website www.letschipit.com and you drag the button to your tool bar. From that point on whenever you see a photo that you like on the Internet you can get all the colors in any photo and color match it to Sherwin Williams colors by hitting the Chip it! button you placed on your tool bar. So for instance I saw this photo:
I chose the chip it button on my toolbar, I had to accept the terms of using it and then whenever I hoovered over a photo the chipit option came up, it works like Pinterest. When I clicked the button a palette came up but I noticed all of the colors were not there. then at the bottom of the chipcard I saw an option for more colors. When I chose that I got every color in the photo. WOW!
Is that not awesome?
OK I admit this might be awesome but it is also freaking dangerous.
I noticed the second time I tried to use it in Firefox I had to shut down my browser and start over or it just hung. I had no problems in Internet Explorer
This works to match colors in a painting or photo you hang on your wall
Pick colors to use in a design
I just had to share that before I went to work. This is so awesome!!
Have a good day everyone!!
PS…I need to start getting paid for all this research I pass on. I have 5 posts that are in draft mode … wait till I finish them. They are gonna blow your socks off…
