See the finish with Resene EzyPaint:
Resene was the first to bring New Zealand virtual painting from the comfort of home or office with the launch of Resene EzyPaint virtual painting software in June 2000. Now Resene have launched a whole new revolution in virtual painting with the release of an exciting new version of Resene EzyPaint.

Resene EzyPaint allows you to see the finish before you even start redecorating. No more worrying whether those two colours go together - you can now try them out for yourself. If they don't look right together, just keep trying other combinations until you create a scheme that is right for you. Resene EzyPaint is easier to use than ever, so don't let the technology scare you off.

Use Resene EzyPaint to create a quick colour scheme using the extended gallery of over 200 interior and exterior images in just a few minutes, or really impress everyone by virtually painting your own home or project in an hour or so. If you aren't confident with colour schemes, choose from over 600 colour scheme ideas included in the software. Print, save and email your selected colour scheme and then start on a new colour scheme using a different picture if you wish.

Virtually painting your own home or project is easy - simply scan in any picture (or use direct from a digital camera), path and paint it. Using this feature you can electronically paint anything from houses, plans and drawings to furniture, people and cars. The only limit to your virtual painting experience is your imagination and, as with most things in life, the more you practice virtual painting, the faster and easier it is. Use the Auto Path Assist function in new EzyPaint Pro and let the software help you create your paths.

No matter what you are planning to decorate, Resene EzyPaint is the perfect way to see the finish before you start.

Many Resene ColorShops are now host to an in-store computer featuring Resene EzyPaint software so you can get a quick lesson in how to use the full version to give you the confidence to get started - call your local store to see if they offer this service.

And if you'd prefer to let someone else do the pathing and focus on the colouring, ask about our timesaving EzyPaint pathing service at any Resene ColorShop.
