I love all of the color features for Photoshop, but I can't seem to get the same results that I can in Premiere and After Effects. I can get close to the desired effect that I am looking for (Wes Anderson type coloring for example), but not exactly.

You mean the 3 point color correction used most often in video?
Those controls map directly to the controls in Levels.

But it would be nice to have the UI that video users are familiar with.

(and I thought this had been requested before, but I can't find an older request)

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Color wheels in camera raw and Lightroom and photoshop.

Similar to Blackmagic Davinci Resolve it would be great to have color wheels for lift, gamma and gain with controls to set the blend between them.

Yes Chris, exactly that. I'd love to see it in lightroom camera raw too. There is much more control than using curves.

No, 3 point color correction is much LESS control than using curves.
Again, your 3 point color controls in video map to a subset of controls in Levels -- which are still a tiny subset of what is possible in curves.

Would it make sense to implement 3/4-Way Color Wheels into Photoshop?
I do believe it is a more efficient way to alter Colors.
For those who have no idea what I'm talking about:



This can be found in any Color Grading application for moving Pictures like Adobe SpeedGrade or Davinci Resolve for example. (A property-page for adjusting the tonal range affected by the wheels would be also highly appreciated)



Tweaking sliders with numbers in Photoshop is a way but I do believe a more visual and efficient approach might make sense.
