Painter's Picker puts an interactive color wheel in almost every Mac OS X application.

It adds the ability to choose related colors, such as complementary colors, analogous colors, etc. directly within the color picker. It also adds more precise controls for choosing saturation, hue angle, and brightness.

Painter's Picker is the simplest way to perform complex color selection in almost any Mac OS X application.

Here are some key features of "Painters Picker":
use an artist's color wheel in almost any Mac OS X application that uses color

easily choose any color in between these 12 colors
get to common tints and shades quickly, or choose any in between value
blend your colors to gray simply using a slider or a menu

Painter's Picker will display a watermark around its color wheel.
It will also on occasion display a registration dialog.
