Photoshop Color Wheel (Free!) Download
Just an 'official' announcement that my interactive "Painters Wheel" for Photoshop CS4 is available now as a free download to the universe at large!
This version is completely free and functional (though donations are very, very nice).
It basically attempts to mimic Painter's and Gimp's style of color wheel in Photoshop (something that's been sorely lacking for ...er... ever) using Photoshop's relatively new embedded flash technology.
The color wheel appears just like the default color picker as a native panel that can be minimized, docked, etc. but is always available for picking.
You can find it here: http://lenwhite.com
Please consider joining the mailing list while you're there so I can let you know when updates come out.
Also, if you have ideas for additional features there's a forum to post stuff like that. I'd love to hear from you.
I hope you enjoy it. ConceptArt.org was my primary inspiration to create it. Thank you for that.

PS: Sadly, there are weird issues with Vista 32-bit that may prevent you from enjoying the magic of Painters Wheel on this config. Sorry 'bout that. If this is you, let me know. There are some 'weak' work-arounds.

This is a great extension. I was planning to making the exact same thing myself, eventually.
I would like to request a little square on the panel showing the chosen color. Possibly the foreground and background for quick choosing. I was going to post on your forums but I hate registering for so many things all the time.
That's a good idea.
Thought about it but left it off for simplicity in this first version.
Not a tough thing to add. I'll try to get it in the next version soon.
Great, thank you
damn, the vista 64 bit version isn't working on 32 bit system at all
that's sad, but I'll probably upgrade to win7/64 bit later this year.

im gunna have to upgrade to cs4 soon just for that wheel
Vista 32 has a weird "bug" with respect to Flash in Photoshop.
The problem is getting the wheel to reflect color changes made via other Photoshop color pickers (like normal color picker or eye dropper).
If you really didn't need to pick colors any other way than with the Painters Wheel (which is unlikely) then it would work fine. I'd have to give you a special 'Vista 32 modified' version that won't crash Photoshop when it's opened.
Awesome, thank you very much
I'm using the XP version, and it feels a little quirky when changing the hue, you can't really drag it, only click. But either way it's a great add-on that I've been looking for!
Though I have a suggestion and that is to be able to increase it's size when increasing the panel size? For people on higher resolutions, it can be quite small, so customizing it's size can proove handy
well unfortunately i am workin on Vista 32 bits, and when i turn on the plugin PS crashed ^^ i dunno if it is due to PS or the 32 bit version, anastaciy plugin made crash my PS too and it was a version problem, non american ones just crashed when we turn on the Plug...
i'll wait to upgrade my comp if the bug is unfixable , thanks anyway for this improvement =o
it's vista-32 specific thing, I have the same photoshop crash when loading this (and Anastasiy's) extension.
no anastaciy's plugin troubles come from a zoning problem, he sent me a working version and mine works fine now, you can download it on the crimson dagger's thread, i posted a link ( page 15 20 i think), or ask me i get the workin V.

I found your post here, but the link is dead.

Thank you very much vorp (Len White?)
This makes an upgrade to CS4 more tempting now.
okay.. where is the advantage in using the painter color wheel?

All other drawing apps have some sort of color wheel. Painter, ArtRage, Sketchbook Pro, Sai, Open Canvas but for some reason Adobe has ignored this feature. One more thing, it's just bigger! LOL! When your monitor res is very high the PhotoShop color palette is the size of a stamp!
