  • Help! Photoshop Color Picker is all messed up

    Spontaneously, my Photoshop color picker got all messed up - it now shows a spectrum of rainbow colors instead of one color (light to dark, saturated to unsaturated) like I had before. Any ideas on how to get my previous setting back?

        Restart Photoshop and hold down ctrl (cmd) alt and shit and reset the preferences when prompted.

          Sounds like you may have clicked the "B" button instead of the "H button in the HSB radio button selection category. See below:
