It seems to be a bug with the tsl color picker on photoshop CS6 64 bit : when you change the color (1) with the tint slider, you don't see the color change in saturation and lightness (2) slide : very anoying, and It worked on CS3..

Check your preferences and make sure "dynamic color sliders" is enabled.

If that isn't it, then you might be seeing a video driver issue.

Ok thanks, it works now, but it's very strange it is not activated by default...
Thanks a lot.

That is activated by default. You turned it off somehow.

Hi,

It's a fresh install of few hours, I haven't take a look into the menu before you tell me to check it.
I have double checked on others computers of my compagny they all have the same issue, it's not activated on all, and nobody has changed it.
All are on win 7 64bit cs6.

Cheers.

Why did you reinstall? That doesn't normally change your preferences.
And if you want to see default preferences, all you have to do is delete preferences or hold down the reset keys at launch.

Actions, scripts, or automation plugins could change the setting, but it is most definitely on by default.

At the risk of an obvious question, how do you get the HSL colour picker to show. I can only get the RGB one.

Choose "HSB Sliders" from the panel menu.

Thanks, but that is HSB. I would really like HSL. Ah, I see the picture above is HSB. All the same, I would really, really like HSL, especially as CSS3 now supports HSL representations.
