Paint Your Car Online - Using Your Computer
Ever wonder what your car would look like in a different color ? Don't have the $$$ to repaint it just to find out ? Neither do I.
However, there is a very interesting shareware program online called
(((( Paint.net )))) It is an excellent and yet inexpensive photo editor that you can download for free---however they do recommend a $10.00 donation, which I gave when I realized how good this program was. Simply search it out via a Yahoo search for Paint.net, then download.
Below are a few samples I created of my own Camaro. My car is currently PPG Hugger Orange, with a black oversized hockey stripe, chased with a 1/4" stripe around the outer edge---done in PPG Platinum. Looks like chrome in the sun.
The program allows you to change the hue and saturation of the color. I've provided some wild examples, like the lime green. However, you can mute that green and give it a more subtle look, as I did with the other green example. Also, check out the pencil sketch as well---would make a neet post card !!!
This program is a fun tool for the computer, but could also assist someone out there that can't decide on what color they want to paint their car. They could take various pics of other cars and adjust the color until they get close to what they want.
Oh---and one side effect---it'll change the color of your lawn as well.
