It includes Compact Mode and all color tasks you need. Click MagicPicker’s/MixColors’ menu -> Attach Panels… to do that.
The combined panel works faster. You can also use new panel in Compact Mode when you have the panel minimized and it automatically expands (no click needed) when you move mouse over it.
MixColors can automatically update Photoshop’s current color with the mixed color while you’re mixing. 1. Click the “Auto-sync color with Photoshop” button. 2. Mix colors with MixColors panel and paint with new color in Photoshop right away. *Click this button again to switch back to the unsync’d mode, where you first mix the right color and then send it to Photoshop.
