    Rex If I can just had my 2c worth or 2p worth as I'm in the UK maybe some of those colour's you are looking at may have had a "scale color effect" added or rather taken away from them. I know some paint manufacturers ranges have had the scale color treatment but I can't remember which ones off hand. Si

    Measuring Paint Colors Using Adobe Photo Shop

    Guys The problem with using Adobe to measure paint colors is unless your PC monitor is properly calibrated the results can be well off the mark. Most monitors and graphics cards tend to be set with a 9300°K color temperature for their white point out of the box, which tends to give everything a bluish tint so some form of calibration needs to be done either through software or hardware to lower this down. Adobe Gamma which comes bundled with Photoshop is better than nothing BUT is very basic. Si
