A new website service by leading paint brand Taubmans enables specifiers and designers to easily download more than 1200 colours of their choice directly into software rendering tools.

These colours can be downloaded from the Taubmans Colour Galaxy directly into Adobe Photoshop, RubySketch and Sketch Up, enabling design professionals to inspire and educate their customers on colour choices.

Taubmans Head of Trade Marketing, Trevor Lowder explains that design professionals will be able to save valuable time with the new software. Once the Taubmans Colour Galaxy is downloaded direct from the website into software rendering programs, colour information is easily accessible to the designer or specifier, reducing time needed to access this data and increase efficiency.

Mr Lowder said that the latest development is part of Taubmans’ efforts to support design professionals and specifiers, and will make colour specification easier, faster and more creative.

On the Taubmans Colour Centre page, design professionals can explore a number of tools designed to inspire customers with paint colour selection. Specifiers can explore the full range of paint colours from the Colour Galaxy, request for a brushout to be completed by hand from the Taubmans Colour lab, request a specification and visit the support portal to directly download the Colour Galaxy into their rendering tools.

Design professionals can access 1200 colours in Photoshop and the full Taubmans Colour Galaxy of 5762 colours when using RubySketch or Sketch Up. Taubmans has also partnered with RubySketch to build the Colour Galaxy colour palette into the latest version of the RubySketch software.
