    Description

    Chroma Palette is a companion app/plugin for Adobe Photoshop which allows you to create, store and recall colors using your devices Numpad or Keypad. By using Chroma Palette you can quickly recall those colors within Adobe Photoshop by simply pressing the assigned button, which also displays the color. Additionally Chroma Palette also allows for highlighting of important Adobe Photoshop hotkeys on your devices for easy access.

    Here is a list of effects that I have integrated for this game:
    • Store up to 20 colors across 9 pages (180 Colors total) for use with Adobe Photoshop.
    • Easy page changing by use of NumPlus and NumMinus.
    • Toggle Background/Foreground color palette using NumMultiply button.
    • Learn button to capture color from Adobe Photoshop to any Color palette button.
    • Toggle Extra buttons across 1-9 for additional palettes.
    • Optional Adobe Photoshop hotkey highlighting.
    • Customizable default color themes for app.

    Developer/Personal Note

    Hi all, Roxas here with another app release utilising the Chroma SDK. I had the idea for this project while lying in bed last night and spent the entire day (and night) trying to piece it together. I've sort of hit the point where I really could use some external feedback on this so I decided to post here since you guys are awesome at feedback.


    Usage

    Download and extract zip file and launch the Chroma Palette.exe file to launch app. App will automatically launch Adobe Photoshop upon launch but will also attach to Photoshop automatically.

    Some important notes about using this app:
    • You must have Adobe Photoshop CS5 or later. I have only tested on the latest version of Photoshop (CC 2015) so any compatibility feedback would be appreciated - for example Adobe Photoshop Elements, etc.
    • Supported devices: BlackWidow Chroma, BlackWidow TE Chroma, Orbweaver Chroma*.
    • While using Chroma Palette, your numpad (and number buttons if enabled) will be disabled on other programs while running. Please close Chroma Palette to restore their functionality.
    • You must have a document open within Adobe Photoshop before the navigation/palette buttons begin to work.
    • *Razer Orbweaver Chroma users: To use Razer Orbweaver, please load the .razersynapse profile found in the zip file. If you wish to manually setup an Orbweaver, create a new profile and map the Num 0 - 9 to Buttons 1 - 10 and Number 0 - 9 to Buttons 11-20.

    OMG. As a designer, this is quite possibly one of the best uses for the Chroma SDK I have seen and will definitely come in handy.

    IM ACTUALLY GOING TO USE THIS!
