Supporting colorblind accesibility in CS4
One of the sleeper features in Photoshop CS4 is new support for simulating color
blindness. My fellow PM Bryan O’Neil Hughes managed the development of the feature, so I invited him to share more info in a guest blog post. Read on for details. –J.
CS4 color picker now does CMYK
Responding to reader feedback, developer Anastasiy Safari has added CMYK support and other tweaks (e.g. resizability) to the color picker panel I mentioned the other day. Way to go, Anastasiy!
You can download the panel here, unzip the file, and then drag the contents of the file into your "Adobe Photoshop CS4/Plug-Ins/Panels" directory. (Don’t forget to delete the old one if you installed it earlier.) After you relaunch Photoshop CS4, the panel will appear under Window->Extensions.
