IndigoUI: Color Picker and Editing

(1/2) > >>

Hi all,

I think the biggest change to the IndigoUI concept is color selection and manipulation. The basic idea is to select the color, color gradient or pattern using the color selector and edit it live there as well. Thus, in addition to ready-made colors in a color palette, you can also mix and use custom colors.

The new color picker combines several existing functions in one dialog. Managing color palettes, mixing colors and display colors for color blindness.

In addition, there are different ways to mix a color:
- Color sliders (RGB, CMYK, Lab, HSV)
- Color map (Hue, Saturation, Value, Red, Green, Blue, Lightness, a, b) -> like Photoshop
- Color harmony (Complementary, Split Complementary, Triadic, Tetradic, Square, Analogous, Monochromatic)

Feedback is welcome.


looks good

Uihh, this is great! In which version will it be available?

Hi toyotadesigner

It's up to the Scribus developers whether they want the feature at all.
My plan is to first work on a concept, test it, optimize it and then you could think about what will actually be built into Scribus.
In the current IndigoUI mockups I specified Scribus 2.0. Let's see, maybe we'll see everything there.

By the way, the color picker is already programmed.  :D


Hi Martin, Scribus 2.0 might take a very long time to appear on the market. I am 67 by now…
