Does it? I havn't used PS since a long long time... if it looks like PS 
then I have to have a look at PS but I don't expect to find there 
highend visualisation functions like in motion picture color grading 
tools nor the cool discreet like preset banks... ;-)

Yes exactly the same except for:

- the more visual primary color selection with enhanced visualisation
- powerful storage banks for test setups
- a drop down preset lib
- loading and saveing of settings
- added compare tool
- sliders with scale marks and middel point mark

finally you can say it's exactly the same ;-)

I only had an hour to made the mockup so I don't found the time to 
implement highlight/mid/shadow support or other needful extensions... 
you are right this had to be integrated for future mockups -  and even I 
have to go step by step - next version will show a lot more maybe... ;-)

Until today nobody has integrated this small cool things in a standard 
image editing application - not even that small things... (what sense 
made it to figure out complex things if even the simple ones are not 
realized? ;-)

You are absolutely right - lets go and start with this - I really would 
enjoy to integrate all this things into a mockup and discuss pros and

That would be really great!
I'm a bit modest with posting here because of that...
And where to find the people from the GUI wiki?
