Thinking of painting interiors? Explore colors before you buy paints.

TapPainter lets you visualize interior spaces in new colors with respect to natural lighting conditions. It analyzes the change in interior lighting, preserves it and adjusts the color brightness based on the room’s lighting within the image.

This version of the app gives you access to color fan decks of all paint brands loaded into the app for no additional cost!

- Images are uploaded to a secure private server for processing.

- TapPainter is designed for Interior spaces, it is not intended for exteriors

- TapPainter was first released March 2014 and is the first physics based room color visualizer to tackle the challenging problem of accurate room color prediction. We are continually working to improve our room analysis. Please email questions or suggestions to

- Results depend on the quality of the photo, for best results use natural lighting. When using artificial lights, make sure the complete room is lit as evenly as possible

- Be sure to check out our FAQ for tips and tutorial videos, also accessible via ‘?’ icon

TapPainter has lots of color fan decks to choose from. Benjamin Moore, Behr, California Paints, Dunn Edwards, Dutch Boy, Sherwin Williams, Kelly Moore and many others are among them. With TapPainter you can enter a color code from a paint swatch, choose a color from selected paint brand or mix your own custom color which can be converted to a closest available paint color in a brand you choose.

TapPainter also comes with custom controls to define a shape to paint (for example when you want to paint different walls in different colors) and a starting tutorial.

TapPainter is the most accurate interior paint color visualizer available today. See our website for some before and after actual paint projects compared with those repainted with TapPainter.

Paint Function Not Working

This is the only rendering app I could find with the diversity of in-app-integrated paint brands needed to plug in the colors across brands that we’d chosen in the field, but then the seemingly simple painting tool just doesn’t work? I tap every option of Add Paint Now and Repaint, holding down the roller, dragging it, trying different combos or before and after with Quick Paint vs. the shape you can drag and draw, and nothing happens. The new color I’m needing to show in a rendering is much lighter than the existing color in the photo; is the paint just not showing up because it’s...lighter? The app seemingly spazzed at different points and added browns that asked me to “convert” them and/but seeming went right on the walls, but. I dunno, I was really hopeful. Not sure where to find this simple design rendering feature across brands!



Stopped working literally 5 seconds into launching the app for the first time. Seriously, don’t even waste your time downloading it. The Home Depot app isn’t much better, but it blows this app out of the water in comparison.


A waste of your time

Not practical at all, the process of choosing the area is useless
