HSL Color Picker

Recommended Posts


I was looking for a tool to pick the right starting color for a HSL adjust and found it in the desktop version. It works as expected and is a great help to find the colors to adjust from the image. However I can’t find the Pipette in the iPad version. Is it hidden somewhere?

Not working here for me. As soon as i select the picker, the adj. layer closes. I want to set the color in the color wheel of the adj. layer. E.g. when I select a predefined color, im getting the 4 points of affecting range. I want that but not for a predefined but for a picked color. Its there in the desktop version (pipette button in the HSL tab) and also in PS (the hand tool in the HSL tab). Can't get it to work in the iPad version...

Now, 1,5 years later. It seems, as if it is still not available on iPad?

One year later, HSL still lacks color picker.

Maybe you keep this feature for 2.0, (as you do with importing color swatches) in which case 2.0 version I hope it will be available later this year.

(And if that’s the case, please bring all the desktop feature over to iPad and make the app just as expensive as the desktop counterpart — we will purchase again no matter the price; I think there’s no reason to hind important features behind a smaller price, and M1 iPad Pro is powerful enough)

Kind regards!

2 yrs later and no signs of improvement whatsoever. It's more and more frequent see how they just don't mind to include important functional features even if they are clearly needed. 

This App is a consistently deceiving when it comes to be considered professional and made for a real life production.
