MyColorPicker is a color picker that is simple, very compact, yet has some unique features.

I did it to fit my needs of color picking for painting, and thought it did it quite well, so I figured I'd share it with you!

- Colors of a given tint are displayed so that all colors on a horizontal line have the same luminosity
- Luminosity doesn't change when changing the tint (hue) or saturation
- You can drag H/S/L sliders to quickly adjust any of the three without affecting the others
- Fine tune your color by using keyboard shortcuts
- Big current / previous color swatches so you know what color you're using
- Not modal (stays there all the time)
- Of course, like the other third party color pickers, it modifies Photoshop foreground color, and reversely updates when you change Photoshop's foreground color
- It will works nicely with Photoshop's native color picker and color panel.

You can also drop me an email (see my Adobe Add-ons 'about' page).
