Photoshop Color Picker in 32-Bit Mode

A 32-bit image has, like, a BILLION colors. That’s way more than your monitor can display. Picking a 32-bit color is a little different in Photoshop.

  • You can preview what the color looks like at different exposure preview settings.
  • The value of the swatch is expressed as a 32-bit floating point number.
  • The color of the swatch is your RGB/HSB numbers + a Intensity value (measured in stops, from -20 to +20)

    How did you get these extra options to show up in your color picker? (Like Intensity?) mine just has the normal color options without all these extra thingies. A setting I’m missing?

      It’s a 32 bit/channel image. Chance that in the image mode and you can see it.
