HSB color picker

Recommended Posts

AFAIK, HSB is just the same as HSL except that B extends only up to L/2, and S=0 is fully white instead of grey. In general, I find HSL more intuitive than HSB, because intuitively no saturation should be grey, not white. 


Why do you think with HSL you can't create a set of shades for a base colour? Simply use L as you would use B...


However, I would very much like some way to open Apple's colour picker instead of Affinity's, e.g. by holding the option key and clicking the colour bullet.
