Mac OS 10.7.3 Lion. Recent upgrade to CS5 from CS3. I can't get the HUD color picker to display. I use Magic Trackpad, so right click is a double tap. Option + Double Tap just gives me the contextual menu. Suggestions?
Also the actual keyboard shortcut is Ctrl+Option+Cmd.
Thank you, I was looking at a post from 2010 where Windows users were getting the HUD Color Picker by hitting Alt + Right Click. So the Mac key combo is Ctrl+Option+Cmd. I have successfully accessed the tool. Now if I could just figure out what it's good for...
Adobe says, "The heads-up-display (HUD) color picker lets you quickly choose colors while painting in the document window, where image colors provide helpful context."
Here is a good tip on the HUD color picker: http://blogs.adobe.com/jkost/2010/05/jumping_the_hud.html
and a video on the topic (color picker is covered at 3:55, but it is full of perfect tips for cs5 newcomers...) http://tv.adobe.com/watch/the-complete-picture-with-julieanne-kost/pai nting-in-photoshop-part-1/
