How we extract Sherwin Williams color from image?

Here’s the technical lowdown: We start by converting the original RGB pixels into the Lab color space, utilizing a smart digital color conversion library. Think of it as our behind-the-scenes color transformation.

Once we’re in the Lab space, we employ calculations to pinpoint the Sherwin Williams color that’s the closest match in terms of delta E distance in the LRV color space. Delta E measures the difference between colors, and LRV is our chosen playground for this comparison.

Now, here’s the reality check – this process is quite accurate, especially with colors that Sherwin Williams knows like the back of its paintbrush. However, there are a couple of considerations:

  • Sherwin Williams might not have an exact match for every color in the Lab space. So, the closest Sherwin Williams color may not be an absolute twin in some cases.
  • The accuracy of this color journey depends on factors like image quality or the lighting conditions when the color was captured.

While our approach provides a solid foundation for selecting a Sherwin Williams shade that aligns with your HEX color, it might require some manual tweaks for absolute perfection. So, feel free to experiment until you achieve the ideal match!
