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 ;-)

of the overlap value on the color gradient, wich is cool, but I don't 
know if it's cool enough to change the whole dialog, that already works 
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? ;-)

adding some real enhancements to the tool, like arbitrary 3-point 
gradient selection and/or a curve for tweaking. In that case, the use of 
a wheel is better than a linear scale because it matches better with the 
well known color wheel scheme.

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

on functionality discussion. This would avoid the frequent conflict user 
requests vs. developers priorities and would bring some fresh ideas for 
the project.

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?
