Just scan the photo or load graphics file from disk, choose the brand of paints/crayons to be used and the program will convert photo to a paint-by-number pattern optimized for the palette you have chosen. Paint color numbers! You can also print the pattern together with color key (number coloring).
Be aware, however, that color names are not universal. Netscape 2.0 and Internet Explorer 3.0 should read the color names above, but other browsers (especially older browsers) may not be able to. A more encompassing method to represent color is to use the hexadecimal numeric equivalent. For example, the hex number for blue is 0000FF. Use the pound sign (#) with the hex number enclosed in quotes (e.g., "#0000FF").
Below are some commonly used color numbers.
“Color by Numbers is an coloring activity that can no only be fun but teach number recognition as well. The interface is pretty and functions very well.”
