Quick Tutorial - Installing Painters' Wheel

Quick Tutorial - Installing Painters' Wheel.

I've been asked many times what is that colour wheel on my photoshop screen. Well it is just a photoshop extension.

This is definitively one of the most useful plugin I use. Easy to install it will offer an additional window where you can pick up the colours like in Corel Painter. I always prefer Painter colour wheel rather than Photoshop.
Basically: one ring for the Hue and one triangle for the Saturation and the Value.
Moreover the wheel can create a gradient of colours between A and B just clicking on the small triangle on the bottom right. Useful!

In order to install this FREE plugin just follow this link and follow the steps. Really easy. The skin of the plugin also matches to the new Photoshop CS6 interface.(
