Hello, I can see that the Adobe Color Themes panel is being removed from the Creative Suite this month (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign). There is no explanation or details online, is it being replaced with something else? Is it being implemented in another panel or will the feature disappear completely? Why would it be removed? Could someone please give more information?

This is due to a ramification of a technical limitation the panel faces. Adobe will be bringing the creative tools back into applications by integrating them in the Libraries panel in the future. https://community.adobe.com/t5/adobe-color/end-of-support-for-adobe-color-themes-panel/m-p/12150105

Same question. I love the Color Themes Panel! Just placing a message like this here without any additional information is a really unfreindly UX.

Same question here: I know there's the online utility color.adobe.com, and that you can save your creations as libraries, but the workflow is not really practical to use, as opposes as the current extension, which requires only the panel opening inside Ps, with everything you need to create, edit or browse themes.

 

Are you supplying a newer version of it, or is it just a removal?

what technical limitation the panel faces? how can there be a tech limitation? That is not a very good answer at all. The Adobe Color Themes panel was added in the first place. I'm reading people use it all the time. Why take it away? Why not leave it, and improve it? 

 

Once again what technical limitation is there. How can there be one in the first place. 

 

Remember Adobe shouldnt' be like Microsoft and just do things the customers do not want. We are paying for this cloud service in the first place. Right?

I agree - this is so annoying as I use this often and its not very practical to leave the application go search for a palette and then save to your library. Cant you get rid of something else if you don't have room?

It is BEYOND annoying. So impractical to go to web! Technical limitations, how?! It's been fine for years on end, yet they get rid of it without a practical and immediate replacement. Would Nikon or Canon just eliminate a daily used feature like "white balance adjustment" from their camera firmware? No! This is basically the same BS being thrust onto Adobe's customers.

I use the adobe color themes constantly. For it to be removed suddenly like this is annoying. I am now spending more time playing around with colors than I did before. Your explanation for removing this feature is weak. When will the new intagration in to the libraries be available? Will it work the same way? Why isn't the new integration implemented now? This is weak sauce coming from a subscription based application.

For a lot of projects my workflow now is so slower.... With Color I was able to quickly pick up a color and look for similiar or complement ones. Now I have to pick up the HEX code, type it on the web app, and then type it back in photoshop. And if this does not fit... again and again. So impracticale...

And when you are on the move and have only one monitor... damn... I do not get it... so sad... 😞

Not smart. Not good. I makes me want to cancel subscription. Is there something wrong with the Dev team's thinking. Why irritate your customer base. 

I do not understand this one bit.

I always use this slider for unpacking my photo's color, it was very helpful for my every project. it was so easy to color grade images.  I want to enquire why this slider to removed and will a new update come or not. I had the monthly subscription plan but it would be a waste if this panel is not available. Kindly revert me as soon as possible otherwise i have to withdraw my subscription.
