Old Jewel Updates Painter's Picker With Bug Fixes

Old Jewel Software has released an update for Painteris Picker, bringing it to version 1.0.1. Painteris Picker is a utility designed to expand OS Xis standard color picking panel. The update features improved performance and bug fixes. According to Old Jewel Software:

Old Jewel Software is proud to announce the release of version 1.0 of Painteris Picker, its new extension to Mac OS Xis color picker panel.

Painteris Picker is an extension to the color picker panel in Mac OS X. It adds the ability to choose related colors, such as complementary colors, analogous colors, etc. directly within the color picker. It also adds more precise controls for choosing saturation, hue angle, and brightness, and provides the ability to choose colors in the CMYK color space while using the popular HSB-style controls.

Among the requests we received were a few that had to do with incompatibilities and bugs. We have noted these, and tried to correct a few of the most glaring in version 1.0.1.

Changes in Painteris Picker version 1.0.1 include:

  • The Actions popup menu button should not have its title clipped any longer
  • When using Painteris Picker within Photoshop, the contextual menu would sometimes be disabled. This has been fixed
  • The contextual menus now report with a check if the currently selected color matches a given preset
  • The "tight analogous" scheme would not allow the user to select the color counterclockwise from the key color. This has been corrected
