Currently the colour mixing in Adobe Photoshop is not true to real life (e.g. blue plus yellow makes a cream colour instead of green). I would love to see Adobe impliment a system like the one found here: https://scrtwpns.com/mixbox/

It would improve the product greatly and keep Photoshop above the competition for digital artist.

You are aware there are already plugins for photoshop that do that, like:

There are plugins for many features I am sure. That doesn't change the request. Especially because Anastasiy doesn't allow for mixing on canvas (e.g. laying down one colour and then painting over it with another, instead it requires you to mix colours in a seperate panel).

Bump. 

 

Being able to mix colours directly on the canvas would be an incredible feature and it's something I've always missed having. Can you please have Mixbox implemented? This would make a huge difference in our creative process.

I agree. Photoshop should include this in their software that they aim to be the industry standard, Rebelle 5 has this in it, and it is far cheaper than Photoshop. Come on Adobe plese catch up!!!

It appears that their business model is either OEM licensing or the hope of being acquired by a bigger fish and to crowd source petitions. I find it hard to accept that this is beyond a plug-in for end users. Or perhaps I'm just being cynical.

I dunno...I'm not aware of any plug-in that affects brush strokes directly while you draw. PS doesn't even give you the option of just mixing and blending colours while painting. There's the mixer brush and the smudge tool but those are not the same.

I'm not a programmer, so if this is beyond a plug-in Adobe can of course create their own similar capability,  license or acquire the technology from this or another developer or continue with their roadmap which may or may not include any of this.

 

Regardless, the developers are encouraging the public to make noise in fora such as this.

 

EDIT: by plug-in, I was thinking of a separate workspace/gui/toolset, such as Liquify or Camera Raw – not "native tool integration" into the core of Photoshop behaviour.

For sure, I think people will be happy either way, as long as we get the functionality. They haven't made any upgrades to digital drawing/painting aspects of the software in ages, so a little noise won't hurt imo. Sometimes that's what's needed to get the ball rolling. Adobe charges a lot of money for their services, and fair enough, but they should keep up with the times. More alternatives on the market should push them to be more competitive.

adobe didn't even add many function from fresco to photoshop. Honestly adobe need to focus more on the digital painting side of photoshop since it is already best all other photo editor in market. As for the mixing, I find that people already used to digital painting will probably find it unnecessary but I could probably wrong about that. More option is welcome anyway. Please support digital artist adobe
