Colour panel: ability to choose displayed values

Recommended Posts

Please could you give an option in the colour panel to choose the values of a particular colour space. The colour wheel is fixed at Hue Saturation and Lightness, but is a good method of quickly choosing a colour.

All it needs is a small dropdown that allows cycling of the values in RGB, HSL, RGB Hexidecimal and CMYK

Thanks MEB, but what I'm after is the same colour chooser, but with values displayed. I find that the colour wheel is a free flowing way to select the colours. I like being able to see the values I'm choosing in one place. I use the Colour Chooser dialogue as my default, but it's annoying that it opens in another panel just so I can view all the values. It just needs the other colour space values adding.

Something like this:

Or this:

Or maybe even this (although this looks a bit messy):

Would the dialog that you get if you double-click on either the foreground or background color well help you?

It gives you this color chooser, but you can still do basic color range selection using the color wheel while this dialog is showing:

That's what I'm after, but in the colour studio panel without having to open another dialog which covers my design. Or even a cut down version of this in the panel rather than a separate dialogue.

I just find it a strange design desicion why HSL is shown, but nothing else.
