Now if it would get bigger as the color triangle is enlarge that would help, but straight of the bat: it is to small. Why is it so small, when color is so essential; I'm thinking that it would be a good thing if it was three times as big or at least twice as big.... Again, why is it so small....
Thanks for the screenshot!
Yes, the size of the color swatches and thickness of the ring do not increase in size as you scale up the window. You may also have found that scaling up that window forces other panels to increase in size, and that probably reduces the amount of room you have for your paintings.
So here's a thought...have you tried the 'temporal color picker'. It has a bigger swatch, can also be resized to be larger, but can also be used over top of your painting, making it easier to compare your newly selected to color to your painting.
It can be opened by doublle-clicking on the Main/Additional swatchs, or alternatively choosing "Ctrl+Alt+1". ("Cmd+/Opt+1" on Mac.)
You can grab the edge of the circle to resize it.
It can also be used in conjunction with the Compact color selector (Window > Color Panels > Color Panel (Compact)". This would allow you to:
1. Have a large color picker, with a large swatch. (it shows either main or additional color, not both)
2. Choose color in the context of your document
3. Have a set of color sliders readily available
4. Perhaps allow you to hide or close the main color selector, such that you can keep your panels smaller and have more room for painting.
Here's a screenshot where I have all 3 color pickers open, you can see that I increased the size of the 'temporal color picker':
Yes! I use the temporal picker all the time; noticed right away that it does not split the color, like the color panel triangle "Main Color Circle" does, and wondered why: Corel would do such a thing? Still, this small circle is to small and without the enhancement, of split the color, it is not as valuable as the "Main Color Circle", in the color panel.
Hi Vision Painter,
That's strange, the temporal color picker does split the preview on both my Windows and Mac systems just fine. I wonder why yours is not working? Are other artists seeing this issue?
Okay, I was not specific, enough: what I meant to say is that the temporal picker does show the color difference, but not the color vairibility -- sometimes I think people can read my mind, I guess....
What it was: I was using the Temporal Color Picker, and wanted a closer look at the color variability, but it wasn't happening with the TCP, so I cataloged it in my brains as the Temporal Color Picker is not working as I thought it would....
Actually the more I work with the Temporal Color Picker -- I reconsider the statement "that the main color ring is to small:" if the Temporal Color Picher is enlarged to it full capacity, it is about the size of a quarter, so it's big enough. Still not having the Color Variability show up in this Main Color Ring, on the Temporal Color Picker is not good....
