Artists work with real paint by mixing groups of colors on a palette, making for natural blending and color combinations. That’s a far cry from Photoshop-type color pickers, which let you grab specific colors but not combine them.

The blobs can then be mixed by dragging them together, and also edited, moved, resized or deleted. “While simple, this representation allows an artist to easily construct and edit complex color gamuts,” Adobe’s team says in
