**Dulux Trade Paint Expert for professional decorators**
Best for: Professional decorators who want colour and product assurance at their fingertips
Our unique Visualizer tool within the Dulux Trade Paint Expert app shows customers exactly how their chosen colours will look on their wall in real time at the touch of a screen. The virtually painted room can be saved as an image, allowing clients to compare different colour options. The advanced augmented reality technology makes it easier for your customers to be more confident with colour. Cutting out guesswork and costly delays, it means you can get on with the painting faster.
Ever had a customer who desperately wanted a scheme to go with their sofa, carpet or even a favourite picture? This app can help. Start by taking a photograph of the object - from your customer's upholstery to their favourite flower. The app will instantly match to the nearest Dulux shade and suggest ready-made colour schemes based on it, so you'll be able to offer customers colour guidance as well as decorating know-how with assurance. Alternatively just browse through the Dulux Trade colour ranges.
The app also helps with the little details that make day-to-day tasks a breeze. For example, it can help you find the nearest stockists, find product details, scan barcodes for information, inspire you with tips and techniques and keep you up to speed on professional decorator news.

**Dulux Trade Paint Expert for Interior Designers**
Best for: Exploring colour schemes, creating electronic moodboards and presenting designs to your clients
Browse through Dulux Trade colour collections or enter a colour reference from your customer's brief. Alternatively, start with an inspirational photograph, or an image of a wallpaper or fabric you wish to use, and the app's colour picker will allow you to discover the closest Dulux shade to any element of that image and can also offer a selection of co-ordinating colours. Your colour palette can be saved to come back to at a later date or used as a start point for a complete design moodboard. You can even order A8 colour samples direct from the app.
Create customised digital moodboards for each of your projects, bringing in imagery of all the relevant elements, combined with your chosen Dulux colours; you can even add text and customise the background to bring your scheme to life in a coherent and professional way. Then present your vision to your clients as a project or even as pdf or jpeg.
