Tip#109: Use new combinations of color spaces and sliders in MagicPicker

In MagicPicker 8 you can add any combination of any color spaces under the color wheel. These color spaces are added in the form of sliders that you can interact with and adjust colors.

1) Click on the “Add Color Space” “+” button near sliders on the bottom
2) Choose any color space to add: Lab, F/B Gradient, HSL, L*c*h, CMYK, Grayscale, CIE Luv, HSB, RGB, Temperature
3) After adding color sliders you can remove any of them by dragging by its label
4) Rearrange sliders by dragging

Here’s what’s new:

– Fixed a long standing problem when panel was blank sometimes, immediate after starting Photoshop
