When deciding on paint colors for a house, people usually end up sampling many colors to find the right ones. I used the software from Dunn Edwards paints to "preview" the paint colors for the Victorian I am working on, as mentioned in the previous posting. It's not exact but definitely helps give an idea as to how the finished product could look. It's great to have when painting patches on the wall just isn't cutting it.
Here are some before pictures with the proposed pictures to compare with. Later, I'll compare them with true "after" pictures which will look much better than these.
