PPG's Online Paint Visualizer Lets Paint & Design Professionals Virtually Paint a Space
PITTSBURGH – Painters, architects, facility managers and designers looking to provide customers with the best possible results can now visualize any PPG, PPG PITTSBURGH PAINTS ® or PPG PORTER PAINTS® colors on the interior walls or exterior areas. With the new Online Paint Visualizer and the patented PPG EasyEdge technology, professionals can digitally upload a photo of a room or exterior and virtually paint the space. With just a few clicks, you can mix and match walls, ceilings, trim and more to find the perfect colors for the next project.
The revolutionary PPG EasyEdge technology offers industry-exclusive functionality to provide virtual painters with control and detail for fast and realistic quality. It considers elements in a room photo such as lighting, angles, furniture and trim to provide virtual painters with the simulated precision of painting a real room.
Users can access the Online Paint Visualizer on the redesigned website for THE VOICE OF COLOR® program (www.voiceofcolor.com), which features a technological enhancement of the program’s integrated, comprehensive color design system. The Voice of Color program is the color platform for PPG, PPG Pittsburgh Paints and PPG Porter Paints products, based on the premise that every color has an emotional, meaningful association.
The new website for The Voice of Color program provides visitors with an integrated approach to exploring the world of color through a robust set of digital tools. In addition to the Online Paint Visualizer, these include the program’s yearly color trend forecasts, exclusive color families and collections, designer-inspired room galleries, tips for the best use of color, and COLOR SENSE GAME™ tool – an enhanced online system for assessing personality and emotions to create a personalized color palette.
