Learn the hidden abilities of the Color Palette System
I wanted to pass along a useful hint that I noticed blogged regarding the color palette. Here's one trick from the write-up:
All the features of the Color panel become both easier to use and more apparent when it's made larger, especially when using the color wheel. When you make the color wheel this big you can more easily see the grades of color between the primaries and, thus, find the color you really want.
That's hardly the only thing covered in the blog entry, though. You learn about the in-palette color tool (no Pixie or DigitalColor Meter needed), the Palette view, and other useful tricks as well. Check it out!

[robg adds: We've covered a couple tricks of the color palette before, but the above blog post really goes into some detail and reveals a bunch of nifty tricks I wasn't previously aware of...]

Thanks for posting this. Quite helpful especially as regards storage and retrieval of custom colors! By the way, as a color palette extender, some may find Painter's Picker to be of some use.

This may have been in the article referenced above, but I thought I'd highlight it here:
Open up the AppleScript Editor and type this in the window: choose color
Save the file as an application. Now you can get a mode-less color picker without opening up an application like TextEdit first.
