The beauty of MagicPicker is in its freedom. From a simple color wheel to a complicated color picking solution – MagicPicker can be what you want it to be! Easily configure Color Schemes, Traditional (RYB, or Itten’s) color wheel, Color Sliders, Color Boxes, HEX picker, Color Box and many other panel’s tools.
Imagine you could draw in the air with your bare hands…. but oh, now you can! Together with Crispy Driven Pixels, Inc we developed a new panel which connects to the Leap Motion device and allows you to paint with your fingers in Photoshop! If you own a Leap device please contacts us – we need beta testers willing to manifest their imagination from the air!
Works best with our MagicPicker Photoshop color wheel panel
Ethereal – draw in the air with Photoshop
Switch from foreground to background picking by clicking the appropriate color box on the MagicPicker color wheel panel. You can always switch back by pressing foreground color box.
Get correct profile-calibrated CMYK values from MagicPicker panel for correct reproduction of colors when printing your artwork. MagicPicker uses your current Color Profile in Photoshop to calculate proper values. You can convert between CMYK/RGB/HSB color spaces easily.
Use color schemes right inside Photoshop on MagicPicker’s Traditional Color Wheel (where red is opposite to green). MagicPicker provides easy way of picking secondary colors on 5 main schemes (with right-click or ctrl-click).
Easily switch between color wheel and color pane in Photoshop with MagicPicker panel. Use buttons on the top to change the color picking mode. Color pane supports H,S,B and R,G,B modes while Color wheel supports color schemes – providing advanced color picking solution for digital painting, photo manipulation or graphic design
There are two modes for mixing colors in Photoshop with MixColors. 1) When you blend current Photoshop’s color (shown as small swatch box) moving your mouse around central field. Then you set current color by clicking on MixColors’ eyedropper. 2) Photoshop’s color is set immediately to the new blended color. You can blend colors from swatches on the left or bottom. Switch modes with Auto-sync button
All our panels have Settings menu (click right-top on the panel and then Settings) where you can quickly tune up some parts of the interface. In MagicPicker you can switch between HSB and Traditional (RYB) color wheel (sometimes called Itten’s color wheel – dated back to 1708). Or you can make your color wheel pointing up – so red (Hue=0) is always on top, which is very convenient in some design jobs.
