    Feature request: Show foreground and background colors on the Control Panel

    Suicide Level 1

      One thing I have always wanted in Photoshop is some way to have the foreground and background colors constantly visible on screen, like on the control panel.

       

      For me, knowing what the current foreground/background colors are is essential information and I think this needs to be constantly on the screen. Currently, the only way to see them is to have either the Color panel or the Tools panel constantly on screen, but both of these take up unnecessary space and clutter the workspace. I don't need regular access to the Color panel, and the Tools panel is one giant, useless waste of space with no purpose other than to show you the colors.

       

      It would be so much neater if the two colors could simply be shown always in the control panel at the top of the screen.
