Photoshop: Auto-switching of color palette sliders to current picture's color mode

Info pallete is kind of small, and you have to actually read the numerical values to "see" the color. I use color pallete to evaluate the color picked with picker tool. Most of the photos are RGB, and basic color correction is done in RGB color space. Then I convert them to CMYK, and fine-tune the colors there. But I have to manually switch the color pallete every time... it's annoying and time-consuming. It would be great if there would be a preferences-based option to enable automatic color-palette-switching to the color space of current picture.

The color palette doesn't currently have that functionality -- the idea being that people pick color values in a way that is comfortable to them, not necessarily in the color mode of the document.

You can set each info palette readout to "Actual Color" and it will change the mode automatically.

Also: RGB and CMYK are color modes or models, not spaces.

sRGB and Adobe RGB are colorspaces (specific instances of a color model, related to color standards).

This does not tell me how to create a color palette from one of my photos

No, because the request has nothing to do that that...

In the Photoshop manual/online help, on the web, or you could post a question here or in the user to user forums. But please post a new topic instead of adding to a completely unrelated topic.
