Paint.NET :: How To Move Color Picker Out From Tool Box Into Color Selection

Oct 5, 2011

I am a new user to, because the tool I used for complex image manipulation does not run on the OS of my new machine. Although I could easily purchase the newest version, I needed work on some pictures now. was easily available and does most of the thins I need at the moment. In addition, it is officially supported at my work place, so it's a good idea to learn how to use it. has some great features and a cute UI, but there are some issues I would like to see improved. The one at the top of my list is the font preview. I am doing some text on a number of pictures and want to check out some fonts. Unfortunately I can't change the sample text in the font list (at least I do not know how).

However, meanwhile I found a even better function (actually the way I would like to see it). When the font list is open, I can scroll through the list and the text will instantly updated. Cool.

Great thing would be to move the color picker out from the tool box into the color selection, so that it would be always available. Also it would be useful to not only pick one pixel sometimes but the average of a greater area.

Paint.NET :: Color Picker - Active Pixel Data Display On Toolbar

Oct 12, 2012

Feature that would pick the right color on the 1st mouse click when working with images that have many colors and shades etc...Today we need to move the mouse over the pixel and click it to select the color under it and make it active, only then we get the RGB/HSV/Alpha info about it.and if its not the correct pixel info we need to select again. etc...

to make the color selection faster and more accurate on the first click and also enable us to select directly only the pixel with RGB info we want.

It would be great to have online/active display of the Color and RGB/HSV/ALPHA information on the pixel under the color picker , in the toolbar like in the picture i have added.this would make color selection easy and with less clicks on the mouse.just move the mouse over the image, look at the color and select the color you need.the data can be placed anywhere, I just placed it there since its connected to the tool.

This would be great to have on other tools, like the (Magical) Fill Bucket so we can select the color we want to fill with other color etc...or the Magic Wand selection tool to select the color with the RGB info we want.

Paint.NET :: Finding Effect / Plugin For Color

I recently installed (love it!) and was messing around with effects and colors when I stumbled upon this one adjustment/edit . That allowed you to select several colors and make a a threshold and other cool effects with only the colors you selected previously. I thought it was really cool, but I didn't save the photo.

Photoshop :: CS5 Paint Bucket Colors Do Not Match Selected Color Picker Colors

Jun 28, 2012

I recently installed CS5 on my laptop after first removing it from my previous machine.All licences were validated so no problems there.Now when using paint bucket in Photoshop, the colors that I select in the color picker are not the colors that result when I use the paint bucket.
If I create a new black canvas then the colors selected in color picker work with paint bucket.But if I attempt to recolor the background in an existing image that I import into Photoshop, I get the mismatch with colors when I use paint bucket. My method for selecting colors is the same in each case, I select 'set foreground color' and set the color using html values entry at the bottom of the panel.

Paint.NET :: Can't Get Past Square One With Tanel's Color-to-Alpha Plugin

May 9, 2011

I can't get past square one with Tanel's Color-to-Alpha plugin.

I'm trying to get this foreground image:

to look halfway decent on both of these backgrounds:

To complicate matters further, there'll be more backgrounds to come, too, certain to be lighter in color (homage paid to Murphy's Law).

I've tried combinations of settings all over the map, but nothing gets even close. The jagged edge just won't go away.

Photoshop Elements :: MS (Color Dialogue Box) Popping Up Instead Of (Adobe Color Picker) Inside PSE 10

Dec 9, 2012

--Toolbox: The 2 columns of Tools on the left side of the Editor screen.

--Foreground Color & Background Color: The color filled squares at the bottom of the Toolbox.

--Color dialogue box: This is the pop-up that is labeled at the top with "Color". It shows 48 different color squares (6 rows by 8 columns); they are labeled "Basic colors:". Right below the "Basic colors:" array is another 16 empty squares (2 rows by 8 columns) to be filled with colors to be defined. There is a "Define Custom Colors>>" button when clicked opens up a color picker with HSB RGB stacked below the color field screen. See this link to the Microsoft "Color Dialogue Box", [URL]

--Adobe Color Picker: The interactive dialogue box with the color field screen to the left and the HSB RGB numbers stacked on the right side.


The problem:In PSE 10, when using the Eyedropper Tool or clicking on the Foreground Color or the Background Color, the Microsoft Microsoft "Color Dialogue Box" pops up instead of the "Adobe Color Picker" dialogue box. This started about a month ago. I use Windows 7.
I want the "Adobe Color Picker" to pop up (like it used to) inside PSE 10.

Photoshop :: How To Fix Color Picker To Work Across Different Color-managed Monitors

Apr 17, 2013

I'm assuming this problem I'm having stems from having color-calibrated monitors, but let me know if I'm wrong!
To preface, this is the setup I have:

Windows 73 monitors as follows, all have individual color profiles calibrated using the Spyder 3Cintiq 12WX Dell U2410Dell 2409WFPPhotoshop CS6 - Proofed with Monitor RGB, and tested with color-managed and non-color-managed documents . I usually do most of my work on the Cintiq 12WX, but pull the Photoshop window to my main monitor to do large previews and some corrections. I noticed that the color picker wouldn't pick colors consistently depending on the monitor the Photoshop window is on.
Here are some video examples:

This is how the color picker works on my Dell U2410:


This is how it works on my Cintiq 12WX:

Main Question

I know the Cintiq's video capture makes the picture look more saturated than the Dell's, but it actually looks fine physically, which is okay. But notice how the Cintiq's colour picker doesn't pick a matching colour. It was actually happening the opposite way for a while (Dell was off, Cintiq was fine), but it magically swapped while I was trying to figure out what was going on.
Semi-related Question regarding Color Management

Color management has always been the elephant-in-the-room for me when I first tried to calibrate my monitors with a Spyder colourimeter years ago. My monitors looked great, but Photoshop's colors became unpredictable and I decided to abandon the idea of calibrating my monitors for years until recently. I decided to give it another chance and follow some tutorials and articles in an attempt to keep my colors consistent across Photoshop and web browsers, at least. I've been proofing against monitor color  and exporting for web without an attached profile to keep pictures looking good on web browsers. However, pictures exported as such will look horrible when uploaded to Facebook. Uploading pictures with an attached color profile makes it look good on Facebook. This has forced me to export 2 versions of a picture, one with an attached color profile and one without, each time I want to share it across different platform. Is there no way to fix this issue?
Pictures viewed in Windows Photo Viewer are also off-color, but I think that's because it's not color managed... but that's a lesser concern.

Photoshop :: Color-picker Selecting Background Color Instead Of Foreground?

May 19, 2012

You know how when you're painting, you can hold ALT and it will pick a colour from the canvas? Well, for some reason, mine still picks up the colour but it sets it to the background colour instead of the foreground colour.

And when I actually select the colour picker tool, it will only select the background colour but when I hold Alt, it selects the foreground colour. Basically it's flipped where it's supposed to select.

Illustrator :: In Color Picker / Selection In Color Palette Is Different Than Preview

Oct 2, 2012

Working in Illustrator CS5 on a Mac. When choosing a color in the palette, the preview showing up is different than what is in the palette. If I hit "OK" the actual color chosen is the one in the palette, not the preview window... Including some pics for reference. In my 10+ years of using Illustrator, i have never seen this.I am using a Dell monitor on a mac... not sure if that would make a difference.

Photoshop :: Color Picker :: Choose Color Outside PS Application?

May 19, 2003

Is there a way to choose colors outside of the Photoshop application using the Color Picker? Coming from Macromedia Fireworks, I have become accustomed to using the Color Picker tool within Fireworks, which enables you to pickup any color outside of the Fireworks application.

I have seen thrid party tools that let you choose colors from various programs, but they just give you the color scheme and you must type in these color values within Photoshop.

AutoDesk Smoke :: Color Picker - Why There's No Color Wheel

Nov 17, 2012

what is still missing in smoke is having the color wheel while picking a color. The color wheel will enable us to pick any color straight from the wheel , it's much faster rather than trying to mix the desired color using RGB combination. it will be cool to see this feature in next release.

Photoshop :: HUD Color Picker In CS6

Dec 10, 2012

I am seeing something very strange when I attempt to access the HUD color picker in PS CS6. The picker only displays when I have the PS Preferences box open. If I use the keyboard shortcut of 'control+option+cmd click' with only the image open minus the Preferences I get nothing.
I am using a MacPro with  NVIDIA GeForce 320M.

Photoshop :: Fix Color Picker In CS4?

Jul 17, 2009

I have PS CS4 on a Vista 64 system and have suddenly noticed (perhaps it did this all along, but I don't remember using the color picker tool since moving from PSE to PS a few months ago) that the color picker tool does not even come remotely close to picking the correct color that I am selecting with the eyedropper. I was doing a tutorial on brushes yesterday and tried to pick the red color from my kid's dress in the picture as the foreground color for the brush. The color picker chose a color in the browns. I then moved to choose a lime green, again it selected a color in the browns. I have no idea what gives.My monitor is calibrated using Color Munki Create and, as directed in the tutorial, I am using the Adobe RGB 1998 color space. But for some reason, the color picker is not behaving at all.

Photoshop :: Color Picker

Sep 5, 2008

the small vertical window to the right of the main color picker window has changed on my copy of PSCS3. My other installation shows bands of various colors red, through yellow, green, blue, and finally red at the top. This way, I can pick an area of color for the larger square window at the left to make my selection. On the copy with the problem the color range is limited. The colors are instead of being the whole spectrum as above, just a limited spectrum around the color selected with the eyedropper.the range of colors that can be selected with the color picker is drastically narrowed.

Photoshop :: Color Picker

Nov 26, 2007

I did something to jack up my color picker in Photoshop where now instead of having a range of colors that result in white in one corner and black in the other, it now shows a range of color with the foreground color in one corner and white in the other, very difficult to work with for my purposes.

Photoshop :: Color Picker?

Something has gone awry with my color picker. I have my mode set to CMYK, but for some reason, it is not showing the usual color schemes. When I click to choose a color, rather than separating out the color groups, it is showing me a merged view, similiar to how it looks when you are on a RGB mode.
