There is great news for design and art professionals that use an iPhone. Beginning June 1st there will be an application available in the Apple Store for matching colors off of images with the corresponding paint color. The application is called "Ben Color Capture". Benjamin Moore developed the application to run off of their database of paint colors. It works by zooming in on an image. At the bottom of the iPhone you will seen a line of colors that show the corresponding paint color. I really like this feature as you can use any type of image and then find the color you are seeking.
