home depot has a physical scanner that will match colors to a swatch, object, whatever you want, etc. that i think is more effective than this with variances in peoples screens. while a super saturated color might be what your looking for out of a picture you found online, it might be different than what you end up with.

I feel 75% happy with all the color selections they make, BUTTT with only a 10 color limit it can limit your choices.

I wish I can upload a photo as well.
