Any intentions to enhance color picker in Develop module? I think that the color picker can be enhanced with some ideas:

1-. Reset color with Alt+Click, without having to set saturation to 0.
2-. More preset colors. More than these 5 colors! An to have own colors too.
3-. Possibility to take a color sample from picture/mage (something like WB picker).

# 3 is already there. Click and hold your mouse button down while in the color picker area and you can drag it outside and select a color from anywhere on the screen.

Excellent answer, Rikk! I just put in an idea to enable #3 referenced above. How did you discover that? I'll add your answer to my post.

It looks like your post is already merged here. But I was shown this tip at a workshop several years ago.

Suggestion for color picker in Adjustment Brush: Unless I am missing out on a way to do this, it would be great to be able to pick a color for the adjustment brush by clicking the color picker on a spot of the image being edited. I can pick a color from the color palette & work on matching the color, but it would be so much easier to add a "color picker" icon - like the one in the white balance menu - placed in the adjustment brush menu, which would enable selecting a color directly from the image.

Add Color Picker to the adjustment Brush menu so color can be selected from image.
