So for some reason, totally unknown to me, I now have a very annoying color picker setup in Photoshop. At the moment, whenever I change the colour in the right-hand color selector (which updates the main selector area) the colors available in that right hand area totally change. Very annoying, and very difficult to get a color you want. See screenshot below of my current color picker:

The default one worked very well for me, and I want it back. How?

Selecting the 'H' radio button fixes it, previously it was set to 'R' which is selecting from the 'Red' spectrum, I guess.


You can choose Adobe's color picker from Photoshop's preferences window.
