Old Jewel Software
has released Painter’s Picker 1.0, an extension to the color picker panel in Mac OS X. The US$13.85 utility adds the ability to choose related colors from directly within the color picker and adds more precise controls for choosing saturation, hue angle and brightness.
Painter’s Picker provides the ability to choose colors in the CMYK color space while using the HSB-style controls. With it, the brightness, hue angle, and saturation fields allow for up to two decimal places of precision. The shareware product also adds: a contextual menu to the hue angle slider for quick access to some common colors; a contextual menu to the color well for faster access to the different schemes; and a contextual menu to the brightness slider and saturation slider to simplify the selection of specific values.
Painter’s Picker also adds new color schemes to the scheme selection menu: alternate complementary; tetradic with key color; narrow tetradic; narrow tetradic with key color; tight analogous; loose analogous; very loose analogous; and a 12-color wheel.
