Coolorus 2 Color Wheel

Coolorus is a color wheel plugin for Adobe® Photoshop®, inspired by Corel® Painter® color picker.

Coolorus is the right choice for creative people willing to improve their painting workflow. It saves time, and helps you choose better colors thanks to Color Schemes, Gamut Lock and the power of triangle HSV representation.

Coolorus 2.5 is compatible with Adobe® Photoshop® CC 2014.2.2 and above on Windows and Mac.

Coolorus 2.0 is compatible with Adobe® Photoshop® and Flash Professional® CS5 and CS6 on Windows and Mac.

Color Sliders

6 color spaces (RGB, HSV, LAB and more), you can organize them exactly as you like.

Affects Shapes & Text Layers

Coolorus is now able to change text and solid shapes fill color. As simple as that.

Gamut Lock

Sometimes less is more. Limit your gamut to get more consistency on your color palettes.

Color Mixer

Want to keep picked colors? Or share them with others? Or just blend them? It's all possible now with new Mixers panel.


Almost every Coolorus element can be simplified. Just hover on element and press +/- on your keyboard (CS5&CS6) or use Configuration mode (CC).

And much more…

Empty panel in Photoshop CC 2015

To fix this issue install the latest Coolorus version. Adobe suddenly changed plugin runtime, for which we had to release a hotfix.

Extension Manager and Photoshop CC 2015

Extension Manager no longer supports CC 2015 applications. Good news is that we created a small, easy to use installation script, that will seamlessly install Coolorus 2.5 for you. Follow the instructions from readme.txt (you'll find it in ZIP file)

What do I get purchasing a license?

Each license key can be used to activate Coolorus on up to two computers (for your personal/commercial use). All updates withing the same major version will be available for free.

I've lost my license key!

I'm getting 'Activations limit for this license reached' error, why?

Each license key can be used to activate Coolorus on up to two machines. To activate it on another one you have to deactivate it on the previous one. If that's impossible use 'Manage your licenses' option from the bottom of this page and follow the instructions.

I'm getting 'This is trial version of Coolorus. Either your settings do not allow plugins to access internet or our servers are temporarily unavailable' error, why?

Make sure you have an internet connection, and have this option: 'Edit -> Preferences -> Plugins -> Allow Extensions to Connect to the Internet' checked.

Will Coolorus support Retina Displays?

Coolorus supports Retina Displays from the beginning. Unfortunately Adobe untill version CC hasn't support Retina flash panels, so can't have Retina Coolorus on CS6 and earlier. That's not the case for Mac version of Coolorus.

Where I can get Coolorus 1.x?

Coolorus v1.3 can be downloaded from HERE, and version for Apple Mac (native color picker app for apps like: Pixelmator, Sketch etc.) from HERE
