Easily switch between color wheel and color pane in Photoshop with MagicPicker panel. Use buttons on the top to change the color picking mode.

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.
Change background while holding Alt. While holding Alt on your keyboard click on MagicPicker to choose color. The background will change instead of foreground. Works everywhere – color wheel, color box, color sliders.
Attach MixColors to MagicPicker to have a single panel with huge current color, mixing, swatches, color wheel and all the features of both panels working in collaboration for easier usage. 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.
