Not to advertise the competition, but, yes, Anastasiy now has a color wheel which is, without much argument, better than Painters Wheel. It didn't exist until a couple weeks ago. That's why I made mine. There's wasn't another one in existence at the time, to my knowledge.
So, given that he's ahead of me on getting a commercial product with licensing and all that (which is non-trivial to implement)...
Here's the $million dollar question:
If you have Anastasiy's color wheel, what features would make you shell out more money for the "IDEAL Color Wheel". And what would that look like?
I have thought about sprucing things up with my color wheel and trying to charge money and all that. But, really, what gets me excited to do more work on it is to hear from painters like yourselves and create very custom, super-useful-for-painters type functionality. I'm making next to nothing on this stuff. It's the love that I'm after. : )
There are lots of interesting things possible. Zirngibism mentions some good examples (thanks). I'd like to explore those areas where Anastasiy probably won't since he seems more of a photographer type.

This is going to make you happy. Dave Gibbons tweeted about your wheel and then re-tweeted by Dermot Power. How cool is that?
Really wish I could help but I really don't need anything else but the wheel.
The rest is useless imo.

On Windows this is:
hey yeah, i can open photoshop then i go to window > extensions w/e and then open it up and then ps stops responding and crashes im not sure whats wrong, im still running the release candidate for win 7 and will get the full one soon, so that might be the issue, thanks
Roger...that IS the coolest thing ever! I think I've got a new epitaph for my gravestone: "Dave Gibbons tweeted about me!"
Of course, I quickly boasted about it on my official facebook fan page: "I Heart Painters Wheel". : )
Richard, Painters Wheel does NOT work with CS3. Go get Anastasiy's wheel for CS3. Sorry for the confusion.
Ryanoir, I don't know what's causing your crashing. Could be related to the same unavoidable problem I'm seeing with Vista 32 bit. I can give you a testing wheel file that would prove it one way or the other if you like. Just message me an email address to send it to if you want to try it. I hope it's resolved one way or the other soon.
hey vorp, thank you for this awesome tool!
i'm running Photoshop CS4 [x64] on XP64 - the first time i install the panel it works, then after restarting PS it crashes on open until the panel is removed.
also, the outer wheel is seriously slow.
i think you could possibly speed up the wheel by only selecting the colour AFTER you release the click. i'd prefer it if the wheel was more responsive
i love this wheel over magicpicker - please keep it as simple and minimal as possible. with a few tweaks to the performance, i'd buy it for $10 easily.
Message me your email address and I'll send you a copy that may work better for you.
thank you for the colour wheel Vorp!
i do have a question... i don't know if it's related directly to the colour wheel, or just to ps4 (as I installed it to try the colour wheel)"
when colour wheel open, and i try to pick a colour from my image, it samples it to the background colour, thus making me go back and switch background to forground and only then can I adjust the colour i want to choose... is there a way to work around it?
again, many many thanks!
I wonder why you cant just upload it to let everyone try, specially since you're so willing to give it away o_o

The main problem in both versions is that it requires huge amounts of CPU power and of course the lag.
So why is Anastasiy's color wheel faster? I'm not into programming or anything related to that, so maybe the answer is obvious and I just don't know.
But why couldn't you make yours faster to match his?
Would you kindly visit my sketchbook and help me become a better digital artist?

However, what I don't get is how it can be so hard to make a colorwheel in Photoshop when Painter, PainttoolSai(?) and Sketchbookpro (Im sure there are other apps with wheels) that work fast, flawless, and dont make your CPU go haywire.
I'm not saying you or Anastasiys are bad programmers, I love you both for even caring enough to make one.
I just don't get the part where photoshop fails at the wheel. :|
Reedux, thanks for explaining the responsiveness thing.
Yes, I could make mine a bit more responsive with relatively little work.
The plan was to have a switch to let you choose between the two options.
Just haven't gotten to it yet. I've had close to 5000 downloads with only 6 people donating to the cause. So, even though I'm mainly in it for the love, it often gets pushed down in priority against other stuff I'm doing in my spare time.
All these plug-ins are utilizing the new flash integration in CS4 (and to some extent CS3). I think that's why it's kind of inefficient (uses CPU up). I imagine Adobe will refine the process in the future and it will speed up and use less resources. Not much I can do to cut it down to my knowledge.
Why Adobe doesn't just make a color wheel themselves is indeed a mystery.
Noa K: Not sure what's going on with yours. I actually have a private beta version in which the option key lets you choose bg color instead of fg. But that shouldn't be part of what you've got. As far as I know I never updated the one on my web site. It's the first time I've heard of your issue. I can send you the beta if you really can't solve it.
Make sure to get the latest CS4 updates and flash player just for safety's sake.
Today I installed my new Photoshop CS4 Extented in my computer system under Window 7 64 bit for digital painting, photographic and illustration. I updated it from Adobe to upgrade it to work stablity and reduce any errors. I did'nt see painters wheel in any old version of PS before but Painter 11 does have it. I downloaded and placed it in Adobe's Plugs folder so it added to my new PS CS4. I kinda like it because it is so nice to add improving PS to make it easier for painting image so thank for dropping a link here, Vorp.
