    Do you have any tips and tricks for using the app?

    TIPS TO OPTIMISING YOUR EXPERIENCE

    Paint My Place is easy to use and provides realistic results. To optimize your experience we recommend the following:

    Painting a light color onto an existing dark color, when there is a textured surface.

    To ensure paint color accuracy, it is recommend to apply an ‘undercoat’ with the opacity set to 60-70%. Once the paint color is selected, and the ‘paint brush’ icon is clicked, you will be presented with the option to modify opacity. It is recommended to apply opacity at 60-70% of the top coat. This will ensure color accuracy whilst retaining the definition of your surface.

    You only need one coat of paint!

    Whilst painting with a color in less than 100% opacity, attempt to complete the job without lifting your finger from your device. If you do lift your finger, an additional coat will be applied, subsequently impacting on your desired effect.

    Maximize the bucket fill tool

    This tool will amaze you – it automatically detects changes in hue and therefore will splash color onto your evenly colored surface. To optimize the bucket fill tool, it is recommended to:

    • capture your space in a well lit room
    • playing with the ‘tolerance’ function enables you to determine the area to splash with
    • use the eraser tool to clean up any paint spills
