I continue to work on my Photoshop extension panels for artists, designers and photographers. The new versions are out, featuring calibrated monitors support on Mac OS X 10.8+ and Windows 7+, Photoshop Dark UI enhancements, various bugs fixes and speed improvements in MagicPicker v2.2 and MixColors v1.1:
Recently I finished a very interesting project for the flower “tienda” in Quito, Ecuador. Here are some pictures, more to come!
I’ve recently done a lot of photos on my iPod (0.7 Mpx). I know the quality is not so good, but I love mobile photography for its simplicity.

I created the new tool dedicated to all graphic and animation designers out there dealing with fonts. It’s called DiskFonts. It allows to view fonts from disk inside Creative Suite panel. Don’t install fonts, now you can browse them from disk directly, quickly seeing, how your text looks like with different type faces with DiskFonts! The long awaited feature is here!
Supports Mac and Windows, x32 and x64, Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Flash, Dreamweaver, Premiere, Fireworks! Is it Helvetica, Script font, open type font, truetype font - doesn’t matter. Unlimited collection support. You can also compare fonts and then filter the fonts you like with one click.
I was thinking about this kind of thing for years! And now, after all hard work and bugs fighting it’s been embodied in the form of a panel using the latest technologies proposed by Adobe CS5. It’s dedicated to print designers, illustrators, desktop publishing lovers, prepress maniacs, flash animators, HTML5 geniuses and even video title makers!

I updated MagicPicker - the Color Wheel plugin for Photoshop. It now supports Adobe Photoshop CS5 and packed with a bunch of new features!
- new color is now displayed side by side with the old one, while changing
- new Compact Mode for CS4 with only two colors visible and panel enlarges automatically when moving mouse around - activated from Menu -> Compact Mode
- new “Switch Foreground and Background Colors” and “Default Foreground and Background Colors” buttons
- for print designers - CMYK colors are now get profiled based on currently chosen Photoshop CMYK profile. Use it only when needed as it will slow down the panel
- great speed improvement for H and S color modes when using Color Pane
- minor bug fixes, including keyboard when using panel, registration and autocolor update when colors are exchanged (”x” key)
- other small optimizations
