Default HVC Color Composer for Photoshop

Ran across a mention of HVC Color Composer in Layers magazine and it looks pretty interesting...

It's a Photoshop plug-in that "...enhances Photoshop's Color Picker by adding hue, value and chroma controls. The idea is that because artists perceive colors based on hue, brightness (value) and intensity (chroma), they should be able to select colors the same way.

"Choosing colors is fairly straightforward. Clicking on the Hue button shows all the colors with that hue, VAlue shos all the colors with the same brightness, and Chroma shows colors with the same intensity.

"Color Composer's real power lies in its ability to show color relationshops and build swatch palettes base on them." (source: Layers magazine, May/June 2005, page 88)

There is both a mac and pc version (pc version was supposed to be released in Spring 2005 so I assume it's available but it's not really clear on their website)...

Cost: Standard = $49.95 and Professional = $129.95
