Added 75th tutorial on MagicPicker

Posted by Anastasiy Safari on Tuesday Jul 3, 2018 Under Tips&tricks, color wheel

I can’t believe it was 75 posts ago I started tips&tricks for my extension panel plugins! The first tip was published on Sep 5th, 2011 - about 7 years ago (and on the 3rd year after MagicPicker’s birth). The twitter page was launched in March 2010 (yeah I was quite slow, spending most of the time coding MagicPicker).

Posted by Anastasiy Safari on Tuesday Sep 20, 2016 Under color wheel, panels

MagicPicker 5.2 upgrade

MagicPicker 5.2 upgrade


MagicPicker 5.2 introduces improvements by users’ feedback. Here’s what’s new:

– Faster handling of Fill/Stroke colors for shapes, shape groups, small shape groups, large shape groups, groups of large shapes and small shapes and text in all scenarios. Shortly speaking MagicPicker is now the true magic master of shapes and text in Photoshop and Illustrator. Select shapes to quickly change their color, that’s it!
– Interactive Help now correctly shows interactive tips on color name and YUV values
– R/G/B, H/S/B, C/M/Y/K boxes are now faster on Photoshop CC2015.5
– Background color swatch selection in BIG swatches mode is no longer delayed
– RGB/HSB Sliders on the bottom are now scaled correctly. Always
– Speeded up various parts of MagicPicker interface on CC2015/2015.5 (yeah, it’s quicker with every update)
– Improved installation on Illustrator CC2015.3
– Fixed gray window on Photoshop CS4
