I'm back to looking for a program that will suit my needs.  Looking for a couple of things, but all related to colour.  First, someway to look at a photo of a painting, and try out various colour versions overall and in specific areas.  Next to view a photo and pic out specific colours, then enlarge the colour samples so they can be reproduced in paint.  I have tried photoshop, but it leaves me frustrated because it is so complicated that though it could probably be done there, it takes me at least, forever to get there. I have an old photo editing program that I can crop, flip, fix lighting etc. but it won't do these specific painting related issues I have.  Have looked at a lot of apps, but few are focused primarily on colour, rather they are suited for adding text, filing, collage etc.  I saw an app called colorotate that might work, but there are no reviews on it.  It can be iPad suitable or PC based.  Any suggestions?

I have been working with a painting program called Sumo Paint. It is quite easy to use. You can pick colours and paint over photo's. Maybe you should check it out. It has a free trial version, I think.

goodluck,

Thanks. Lots of U-tube videos on its use.  Looks like a cheap version of Photoshop, similar learning curve I think.  Might try it out.  Open to any other suggestions.
