ColoRotate – now isn’t that a cool name? The plug-in itself is cooler. This new plug-in makes Photoshop even more exciting. It’s for Adobe Photoshop CS 4 and allows users to use color in multiple dimensions. Basically, it is a 3 dimensional color picker and editor that works with Photoshop, it will let you perceive and project colors in the same way that our brain does. With this plug-in you can work ‘with colors in 3D, in real-time, and in a way that matches how our minds process color’.
The ColoRotate site describes the product as, “a rainbow of benefits:
ColoRotate gives you the freedom to let your imagination fly.
- Intuitive: In 3D, you can quickly see the multidimensional nature of your colors and the relationships between colors in a way that matches how your eye and brain perceive color.
- Agile: Change your colors one at a time, blend two colors together, or transform a full palette of colors all at once with contrast and color joysticks — adjustments that previously have been beyond your reach.
- Reliable: Take the guesswork out of setting up color harmonies or color contrasts by adjusting the distances between colors in 3D.
- Efficient: Use ColoRotate’s quick drag-and-drop to adjust hue, brightness, and saturation. Import and export several formats, load from an image, or preview colorblindness. Soon, you’ll be able to save even more time with our Photoshop Plugin.
- Piggyback: Browse themes created by the community, or search by tag, title, or creator to discover new color ideas.
- Community: Post your palettes, and tag palettes to engage with the ColoRotate community, or discussions. In the future, look for features like comments and ratings.”
This plug-in is available for $39.00 on the ColoRotate site.
