    Hi there!

    Using Photoshop for Windows.

    Just looking into changing the colour picker from the adobe one

    to this one:

    I find it easier to visualize colour mixing for illustrations on this picker. If there is a setting or plugin that gets this exact picker (hue around the edge, saturation on the radius, lightness on a separate slider) I’d be stoked!

    Its in the General tab of the preferences BUT it doesn’t seem to work. (Pshop 2018). I can change to Microsofts picker there and that works, but choosing between the Strip and the Wheel for Adobe’s does nothing and leaves the square version as the active type (even though the prefs did change).
    Make that change and try a pshop restart, if that doesn’t work, throw out the prefs and try setting it again after a restart.
