Photoshop needs a color wheel that doesn't cost money, take up half the screen, or require 2 hands to access.

There should be a color wheel option in the color panel. For example,some people like to be able to choose complimentary colors without guessing what is closest to opposite of the color they are using. It is visually easier. The Color Themes  window is ridiculously giant, and the HUD color picker requires that someone has 2 hands (which, no, is not an issue for me, I just don't happen to be sitting on top of my keyboard while I draw, but looking into this made me realize how absurd it would be for someone with such limitations.) Also, right clicking a pen is just awkward, and some people might want to avoid it. Don't even try and tell me about Magic Picker or whatever other plug-in there is. You get money monthly from us, it is absolutely ludicrous that you don't have an option that doesn't cost extra money or open up our systems to viruses.

So, you're complaining that the Color Themes panel, which is exactly what you're asking for, is too big?

On my system, it's 215px wide. How is that too big?

Color Themes is a steaming pile of user-unfriendly quality. Why does a color wheel need Internet access?

It sounds like you'd like Illustrator's Color Guide panel.  I've said for years now that when it comes to working with color, PS should take some inspiration from AI. Maybe even figure out something better. But so far, the PS doesn't seem to know that AI exists.<G> I would love the Color Guide panel inside PS. I'd even be thrilled to have the rather overly complicated Recolor Artwork dialog in PS, along with the pretty darned elegant Gradient Annotator.  If someone could just paint the Adobe halls with a footsteps path from PS to the AI team, they might even be willing to assist PS in this.
