Description

The company, known for its premium paints and as the No. 1 color source for designers and architects, is debuting ben® Color Capture™, an iPhone application that, with the tap of the screen, lets you snap a picture of any color inspiration, anywhere in the world, and instantly match it to one of the more than 3,300 hues that comprise Benjamin Moore’s color system. And since color touches us everyday, everywhere, ben Color Capture allows you to save your favorites for instant color coordination and comparison. What’s more, the new ben app can access the iPhone’s GPS system, locating the Benjamin Moore retailer nearest to wherever the user is at that very moment.


The Ben app is intuitive and easy-to-use. Simply glide a finger across the digital photo taken with the iPhone’s built-in camera, zoom into a color, and tap the “match” key. In just seconds, a strip of colors will appear below the photo, with the closest paint match highlighted. A simple shake of the phone and ben will provide up to four coordinating colors, creating an entire harmonizing palette based on the original selection. Favorites can be saved and enlarged to the size of the iPhone screen for easier viewing. There’s access, as well, to the full spectrum color wheel, which expands or contracts by fingertip control to focus on a color preference. That, too, can be translated into a Benjamin Moore color and saved as a favorite for future reference.

Please note that the on-screen color representations are not necessarily precise representations of actual paint colors due to variance in displays. You may bring any color chip numbers to your local Benjamin Moore retailer to match and/ or order the exact color you are looking for.
