Photoshop: Show indication of active Hue/Saturation color ranges

The Hue/Saturation adjustment layer panel doesn't give any indication of which color ranges have had hue/saturation adjustments made to them.
It would be nice if the panel had some sort of indicators to show which ranges have had changes.

Also, it would be nice if it stayed on the same range when I return to the adjustment layer.
Currently, if I make the H/S layer and select the green range and make in edit, then come back to the adjustment layer later, the panel returns to showing the master settings.

yes- its is frustrating to open a hue/sat adjustment layer and have to go through the drop down menu and click on each color ro see what was adjusted. a bullet or some other symbol next to the adjusted color would be really great.

any feedback on this? In other forums someone made a mockup showing a kind of badge next to the color ranges that were adjusted. Would be very helpful.

It's a good idea (already added my vote).

Here's a mockup I made shortly after my suggestion here.

Ah yes! That would make the whole thing much more pleasant to use, instead of going through a drop down menu. And more visual, too.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled
Photoshop: in the hue/sat and selective color dropdown menus, add checkmarks next to those color channels that have been adjusted.


In order to see which color channels have been adjusted in a given selective color or hue/sat adjustment layer, Photoshop forces you to select each color channel individually and access the drop down menu. A quick way to speed up the process would be to add a checkmark or other sign that a particular channel has been adjusted. Additionally, I would like the option of expanding the entire set of color channels to see them all on the screen at once, or add checkboxes so I can decide which ones to expand.

with this new CC subscription model - I'd like to see more developmental transparency - you already have my subscription on the books so I'd like to know if important ideas like this one are in the pipeline for development. Or if we are just wasting our time talking about it here.

Adobe is still a publicly traded company, so we can't talk about unannounced products too much, regardless of the revenue model.

And every idea we haven't said "no, can't be done" to is in the pipeline somewhere.

but surely it is a simple thing to implement and much needed. not a total reworking of a feature just a slight UI adjustment.

Again, we can't talk about unannounced products or versions of products.
Even if the suggestion is that simple (and it isn't quite that simple).
