    NEW color wheel for Photoshop!

    NEW color wheel for Photoshop!

    We would like to present you with Coolorus – a new color wheel panel for Photoshop and Flash. We decided to release the beta version to get some feedback from the community and to fix any bugs, if found.

    In our opinion Coolorus is the best color picker available on the Internet for Photoshop and Flash, and (with your help) it's going to get even better. It's fast, has a simple and clear UI, color schemes and two-wheel modes.
    Any kind of feedback will be much appreciated, so please share your thoughts with us so that we can release the 1.0 as soon as possible.

    You can download the app from Coolorus.com (Photoshop/Flash CS4-5.5 supported – we are planning to support CS3 in the near future).

    You can try out Coolorus in trial mode or activate it in the 'License' tab of the panel.

    More info on Coolorus webpage

    The current colour wheel that I use only has one feature that I dislike, and that's that when I'm rapidly colour picking it takes two to three seconds to respond, which kills flow like you wouldn't believe.

    I'm speedpainting right now so I hope I can give you guys some accurate feedback in the coming hours

    Edit: Eyedropper tool still lags, though less frequently but more randomly. Instead of being consistent the brush lags, and paints with the old colour before the new colour updates. The swatch on the plugin performs much faster than my other colour wheel plugin, which is a bonus. The trail and licence notifications feel invasive, if possible with the full version, remove those from the UI so that we don't have to feel like we're constantly being watched by the licence police.

    The splash screen feels useless and I don't think it needs to be there. I like to have the colour wheel ready for use as soon as Photoshop loads.

    Also, something tells me that if you somehow integrate an inbuilt Swatch or Palette feature that works and integrates seamlessly with this program, then it will be perfect. Right now there's a disconnect between the colour picker plugin and the existing swatches, if you present a solution to that I think you might be a lot better off.

    I love the colour scheme lock as well. It's not bad.

    Tried to stress test it, problem hasn't repeated. Looks like it was a one off.

    If it happens again I'll let you know and stress test it again.

    This seems fast, but I already bought MagicPicker which seems identical in speed and colour picking except for their bonus HSB/RGB sliders of any size. Are you going to go for a lower price point with the 1.0 or some features to buy us MagicPicker users over? A feature I would love to see in one of these is a keyboard shortcut for cycling the colours in colour schemes, it would be handy to press a button and switch from one colour to its compliment.

    There is one bug which I noticed straight away, hovering -out- of the coolorus panel gives Photoshop focus, which isn't ideal for a two-monitor setup (win7 64bit, CS5 64bit).

    This is really cool! I've been using PaintersWheel and love it, but the one big issue is it does lag a lot after Photoshop has been open for a certain amount of time (only appears to affect Windows, though). Restarting PS fixes the lag, but if it could be gone altogether that'd be great. And it also has the bug you mention on your website, inaccurate/jumpy color picking at the edges. I'll give yours a try and signed up for more info. Thanks for developing it!

    when choosing colors on your panel sometimes focus is lost on your panel, i cannot use it. take a look at anastasiy's magicpicker, which doesn't have problems http://www.anastasiy.com/colorwheel are you doing the same job and copying him? please better make something unique lol
