Adobe Color CC Integration

I would really love to see the features of Adobe Color CC integrated directly into Photoshop CC. Instead of uploading a photo to the website and having to save a color theme and then open it into PS, it would be amazing if you could simply read the open file and see your color theme right in Photoshop!

Something about the Adobe Color Themes panel that doesn't work for you?   I should add—if you don't know about it, it's under Extensions.

While I'm using the Themes panel, I would like it to load the colors from my open image, just as it does on the Adobe Color CC website. I know I can open already saved themes from myself and others, but unless I'm not seeing it, it doesn't currently create a theme based on my image. Make sense?

Yes. Now I understand. You want a "from artwork" option like you get with Illustrator. I completely agree that the default color palette doesn't do much for anyone and it would be much nicer if we had the option to get colors from an image — probably preferably from a selected region in an image. I can set my foreground color by sampling my image and get a palette from that, but that's hardly the same thing. It's just basing a color harmony on a single color from my image.  Another serious limitation to Color Themes are the lack of color harmonies you can select from. It has always seemed to me they want us to go out on their site (inconvenient), and work with color there. The extension panel is more an easy way to access palettes that are stored there, with a small ability to create an original palette.

Compared to creating palettes and working with color in Illustrator, I find Color Themes frustrating, so I have tried to find a good reason to use it, but tend to fail to do so.<G> Maybe if they improved the feature to the point it felt almost professional. . . .You've got my vote.
