Sherwin-Williams has announced the launch of a first-of-its-kind web-based tool that allows consumers to select any online image and instantly identify the Sherwin-Williams paint colors that correspond to the colors contained within the picture.
Once you’ve created a profile at http://www.letschipit.com, you will need to add the “CHIP IT!” bookmarklet to your Internet browser toolbar. This bookmarklet will allow you to identify up to ten Sherwin-Williams paint colors represented in online photos simply by scrolling over the image.
Don’t click the image because it will open any hyperlinks that may be associated with it. When your mouse hovers over the photo, small color swatches will appear and a blue “CHIP IT” button. Clicking that button will create the paint palette sample for you.
Here are a few examples I tried from a few photos I had bookmarked.
If you don’t want to use your Facebook profile to sign in, you can paste a URL address for the image into the Letschipit.com site to create your palette. If you are unsure of the image url, right-click it with your mouse and select “copy image url.”
