  • Colour dialogue box has changed

    I use CS4.

    I have obviously done something to change the colour layout in my colour dialogue box, and would like to change it back. It currently looks like the attached screen grab.

    It used to be just one colour, ranging from pure white in the top left hand corner, down to pure black in the bottom left hand colour, and with pure brilliant colour in the top right corner. I forget what was in the bottom right hand corner, but it was all like one big continuum of the same colour.

    I would be grateful for help to restore my colour dialogue box to this state.

    Try clicking on the HSL radio button instead of RGB. Hope this helps

      Canna, I had that happen recently for the first time in many years of using PShop, and it took me a while to "fix it". Don't remember if I fixed it accidentally or found something on the net that clued me in, but I was SO happy when I just hit the "H" in the HSB section of the color picker and got my palette back the way I was used to seeing it.

          Thanks to Amica with the solution. Happiness for Canna with the color picker working normally. Peace for me because if it happens again and I forget the answer, I know I can do an internet search and find it here.

                Changing the colour of a top
                by CarlRetoucher

                Could some one give me some advice on how to match this yellow swatch on this top. I've tried with selective colour and can't get anywhere near it, I'm having trouble with the mid tones and shadows.

                Hey All,

                So I'm a photographer but have been retouching a lot of my own work for a number of years now. I've read a lot, watched a lot of online videos and spent hours trying out techniques that I stumbled across on this forum and others. I feel as though I have a fairly good and well...
