What's New
Version 2.2.1:
  • Painter's Picker no longer shows the register reminder sheet when it first appears. This was causing a conflict with some programs.
  • It should be noted that, as of version 2.2.1, Painter's Picker is still not a 64-bit bundle, and so applications must load in 32-bit mode to use it.
Requirements
Intel/PPC, Mac OS X 10.4 or later

I really used to like this. But as the years go on and there's no sign of a working 64bit version to be released any time soon, people move on. Too bad.

Great program for choosing colors and color schemes, even better now that it's a Universal Binary. If you work with colors at all (especially for a living) it's well worth the $15 they're asking for it.

I thought it was a wee bit pricey at $15. Now that it's $19, they're pushing the envelope.

Very well done, but as others have said before, it is too expensive. Especially for something that has not been upgraded in almost a year: are we going to get support or is it going to be abandoned by the developer? $10 seems about right.

Painter's Picker works wonderfully with Photoshop and has since the beginning. See my reply to your comment for more details.

Wow, this is like the greatest idea, ever. Very useful, and tons of options!

Not quite worth $16, I think $10 would be quite reasonable.

Suggestions for improvement would be adding integration with Photoshop, that alone would justify the $16 price-tag.

Painter's Picker works with Photoshop fine. See the online documentation: http://www.oldjewelsoftware.com/products/ppicker/help/AdobePhotoshop_7962.html

Well, sort of. It would be nice to be able to drag and drop from PP to the Swatch palette in PS.

The dogs biscuits - Taking Painters colour wheel and making it a system add-on was a great idea but at
$15.85 plus VAT/Tax is just too expensive.

I too have to say $10 'all-in' and and I'll buy.

Even though it's too pricey for a color picker, i find myself using it more and more because it's just so darn slick!

I do wish more percentages were available without bring up a menu.

Nice color-picker plug-in, but overpriced. Ask $10 and you're on.

Ah.
I see that it's not dead, but it doesn't show up in all apps.

I should have realized. It's a no-show in 64 bit apps, including Mail.
