    Woah! There's some serious back-and-forth going on here! I should really check back more often.
    Okay, Anastasiy...
    Nice to hear from you directly. I've wondered how much my free color wheel has been hurting your little side(?) business. I have no clue.
    It was never my intention to "undercut" you.
    If you recall, I was an ardent fan of your color picker tool (pre-magic picker).
    You even had my thank you quote up on your web site! How proud I was.
    Back then I eagerly requested you make a color wheel version.
    I waited and emailed you several weeks later about how it was coming.
    You never responded.
    Meanwhile, I got a little impatient, had some programming skills, and decided to give a go. Seemed like a fun project.
    I got mine done first. About a month (can't remember the exact timing) before you reappeared with yours. I put it out there to the (literally) only photoshop/painting community I'm a part of: Concept Art.
    I've done NO other promotion. It's all here. In this silly little thread (if you discount my 13 member "I heart Painters Wheel" facebook group. : )

    I could charge some money to slow down the rapid adoption of my free tool (such as it is).
    But I do like the love I receive (donations...in total I've received quite a bit less money than the cost of ONE of the THREE software packages necessary to develop the tool).
    And now that I've got some code working I'm going to continue to develop specifically for Concept Art painter types (and mostly for myself - since that's why I wanted it in the first place).
    I never plan to add numbers and readouts. Just doesn't seem 'painterly'.
    So...perhaps people with more need for exactness and other things will prefer your tool and pay the very affordable $14.
    Plus you seem to have solved a number of the platform-crashing issues that I'm finding difficult to track down and solve.
    Perhaps Painters Wheel will be a gateway drug for Magic Picker?

    Good luck with development.
    I hope a little competition doesn't hurt your ability to feed your kids.
    If so, let me know. We can work something out.

    -Len (aka Vorp)

    PS: I have no kids. They are expensive.

    Hey all.
    Completely unrelated to the above discussion...
    I've got a new version (v1.1) to try out (kind of a beta right now):
    Here's the direct link:
    http://nerdchallenge.com/lenwhite/Pa...Wheel_v1.1.zip
    I haven't put it on my web site yet (lenwhite.com) since I would love to get some feedback from you all.
    Here's a screen shot to show what's new:

    What's new?
    1) The main thing: See that swatch at the bottom left? That's got the "current" color in the bottom triangle and the new color in the upper triangle. This helps you see what kind of change in color you're considering.
    2) I've set it up so color drags don't update the Photoshop color swatch until releasing. This should make hue-dragging more responsive. There's a setting in the menu to change this back to the old behavior.
    3) For Cintiq users (like me): You know how your hand can cover up important stuff like the swatches when you're dragging colors? In the Settings menu you can flop the swatch to the right side.
    I tend to keep my Painters Wheel on the left side of my screen so having the swatch to the left of the wheel is the default so as to not cover it with your hand when Cintiq'ing.

    Stuff to let me know about that would be great to know:
    1) Does it work correctly in CS5 and CS4?
    2) Are you able to pull of the About and Settings menus in both versions?
    3) Any other bugs? Colors not getting set in PS or the other way around?
    4) There are two folders in the zip bundle: a CS4 and CS5. Can you use the CS4 version in CS5? I couldn't get the menus to work correctly in CS4 with the CS5 version. But I don't have CS5 to test with so I leave it to you.
    5) Is it an improvement or a step backwards?

    Thanks for giving it a go!
    Once I get a little feedback I'll post it officially on my site.

    -Len (Vorp)

    Hi Len my friend!

    The new colour wheel works perfectly for me.
    I've got Windows 7 64bit now and for some weeks I've got my edudicational Photoshop CS5, yeah!
    Your new wheel works pretty fine for now, using it for about an hour.

    1) Does it work correctly in CS5 and CS4?
    -CS5 works perfectly. For CS4 take a look at my answer to your fourth question.

    2) Are you able to pull of the About and Settings menus in both versions?
    -Yes, without crashes or problems

    3) Any other bugs? Colors not getting set in PS or the other way around?
    - Nothing for now, haven't had problems yet

    4) There are two folders in the zip bundle: a CS4 and CS5. Can you use the CS4 version in CS5? I couldn't get the menus to work correctly in CS4 with the CS5 version. But I don't have CS5 to test with so I leave it to you.
    - The CS5 version works perfect for me. The CS4 version seems to work, but it just looks like. I does not pick up the selected color, so you can't change the colours with the wheel. And with the CS4 version I can't get in your PaintersWheel menu.

    5) Is it an improvement or a step backwards?
    - It's more than an improvement, it is damn fast since the older version and I have the feeling, that the workflow is now pretty much better.

    Hey Len, if I can help you anyway, just drop me a line per PM or write here, I follow this thread with an instant email notification

    Greetings,
    Flo

    hey len,

    i was following the development of this little handy tool for a while now. coming form painter to ps couple of years ago, weirdest thing to adapt to was certainly color picking! anyhow, older versions were little slow to effectively replace sliders for me, but the new one works perfectly. im on a cs5 win7 64bit. tested for couple of days with no problems whatsoever. can pull about and settings.

    there's, of coarse, an old problem with resizing the brush right after picking, but it doesnt bother much once you get used to it.

    in case of cs4 version on cs5... i had the same response as tasser. cant get into menus and its not picking. hue wheel seems a bit faster, tho, that probably has to do with it not updating the actual software color.

    thank you. its a definite improvement and a much needed addition

    Len, reading the comments, your wheel looks great (I'm still using CS3), I hardly thought creating such panels was possible. Since it is, my question is do you think that it would also be possible to create a mixing palette for Photoshop, again, a la Painter?
    Most everyone use the sliders or mix directly on the canvas. As far as digital Art is concerned, a mixing pallette in Photoshop seems to me to be a necessity.

    This is a question more than a request but if you ever feel compelled to create one, I'm sure you'll make a lot of peeps happy, while waiting for Adobe to do it in Photoshop CS10, or 11, or...

    I'm embarrassed to say that I can't find the correct place to install the folder on my Windows 7. This:- Program Files/Adobe/PhotoshopCS4(or higher)/Plug-ins/Panels - doesn't exist in my CS5 64bit.

    Thats weird. Is it just a Panels folder thats missing or the whole installation dir?

    If you're not sure where you installed app right click on your shortcut and chose Open file location. It will lead you to Adobe Photoshop CS5 (64 Bit) folder where Plug-ins folder should be. If its not, you might have deleted it accidentally. Reinstall should fix that. If its there but you're only missing Panels folder inside, just make new folder, rename it Panels and copy PaintersWheel_v1.1_CS5 in it.

    Also, make sure that in Edit>Preferences>Plug-ins options "Load Extension Panels" is checked on.

    Many thanks. Your suggestion of simply adding a new folder did the trick. Works a treat.

    Is it possible to get this to work in PS7? That's all I have at the moment.

    "Contrary to the belief of the layman, the essential of art is not to imitate nature, but under the guise of imitation to stir up excitement with pure plastic elements: measurements, directions, ornaments, lights, values, colors, substances, divided and organized according to the injunctions of natural laws. While so occupied, the artist never ceases to be subservient to nature, but instead of imitating the incidents in a paltry way, he imitates the laws."-Andre Lhote

    Nope, it only works in CS 4 and CS 5 because of the new plugin architecture or something.

    BTW, Vorp, just installed it here and it's working. Photoshop CS 5 64 bits with windows 7. I'll be using it and later I'll come back with some decent feedback (:

    Btw, great job!

    I'm using photoshop cs5, and windows 7 32 bit.

    The former painter wheel (the stable one) works just fine.

    I've had the same problem when I was testing the new version.
    Remove the old one. That should work!

    Hehe. I would support you with everything I can do, but can't really advertise with good paintings. Give me some months and then I try to really support you

    Another question: do you want to develop the colour wheel by yourself? I've had the idea that it would maybe great if you'd go open source with it or something. I mean, there are so much photoshop guys which are programmers, too. I would help if I even had any possibilities in that direction but I'm just a graphics guy

    I really love the colour wheel, I'm in still life paintings and in the next few weeks this will be one of the most helpful tools for me

    I dont know if this has been done already, but while I love the colorwheel.
    Years of using the standard photoshop square has left me damaged and I would much rather have the standard photoshop color picker available in a constantly open window.

    A design note, I think the wheel should be a bit thinner

    Awesome tool! I very much love it. Not sure if this is a general error or not but when I select a color in the picker, or say, change the hue, it doesn't keep the old color in the bottom part of the triangle. Basically, the triangle stays whatever color I am picking, unless I am dragging it (but then I am unable to change hues). I tried checking the other setting but it didn;t make a difference.

    Any advice?

    Amadarien: I think I fixed the bug you're talking about.
    Try this dev version: http://nerdchallenge.com/lenwhite/PaintersWheelDEV1.zip

    It's got a dynamic color swatch tool I developed attached to the color wheel.
    If you don't like that there let me know and I'll get going getting a revamped version out without it.
    (let me know what you think about it while you're at it - thanks!)

    Reedux: You mean the big color box that you get when you double click FG or BG swatch? Anastasiy did that before he ever got a color wheel going. Check out his site. I believe that is free.

    tasser: Open Source...hmm...never really done that before. I'll have to think about it.

    lenwhite, i am desperate!

    vorp, i was using your painters wheel for cs4, but then found I had a problem where colors I picked would not change with the wheel when I upgraded to cs5 so I found this forum and downloaded your beta version, I believe the file name is painterswheel_v1.1_CS5. I had to get my computer reformatted and your site is down so I haven't been able to redownload this version and I am in desperate need for it =( I was wondering if you have this version available for download still?

    I love yours because its free , I understand the other guy charing for taking the time to make it, but idk I feel something like that should be free with a donation link, or at least photoshop realizing they need it.

    Hey Vorp,

    There's actually been a problem with the newer one that I didn't notice right away and haven't had time to post on. I can select and change on the wheel but the color doesnt ACTUALLy change on the actual color menu. So if I had a blue selected, and say, used the new wheel to swap to a red, it continues to stay a blue.
