I am, on occassion, a professionl house painter. I oftentimes have left over paint and would like to scan these cans (as well as other products) into a visual database.
I use Benjamin Moore paints and I know they have a program that includes a database of their paint and color swatches (called Personal Color Viewer 2.0) available for about 15 bucks at Ben Moore. ICI Duron Paints has a program available also - for the pc only though...
Is there any way to (or could you see it in the near future) scan in the paint cans, allow for an indication of quanitity left and a color sample (swatch).
This could VERY effective for the small business owner.
I woould imagine this could easily be added or referenced to this program thru simple dialogue...maybe by accessing the PCV2.0 library
