Digital Car Painter Update

The most popular post I ever did was back in April of 2012, on an iPhone app called Digital Car Painter that let you try out paint jobs on your car. It still gets more hits (and more spam—fortunately, Blogger is very good at blocking that) than all of my other posts. One of the most frequent non-spam comments has been whether versions of the app for other platforms are available. So when I got an email from the company saying they now had a version for Microsoft Windows, I figured I’d better check it out.

You can download it HERE. There’s a lifetime subscription cost of $15, but there is a 7 day/10 use demo so you can try before you buy. I suggest watching the Demo Video on Background Mask Function (Process) to get some idea of how the tools work. I’m not really familiar with this sort of software but was able to use it based on that. I’m not much good at drawing with a mouse, however; it would probably work better with a stylus. Even so, it was good at interpolating which areas I wanted masked.

One of the cool features is that you can upload your own photos, rather than having to rely on the templates the app comes with. Doesn’t even have to be cars, you can paint other objects as well.

My computer wasn’t happy about the download—seems the extraction program isn’t that common, and when I tried to install, it informed me there was a problem with the certificate. However, knowing where it came from, I installed it anyway and haven’t had any problems with viruses or malware.

  1. Can't seem to find "Digital Car Paint(er)" on iPad or iPhone, is there any update on that?
