Added 75th tutorial on MagicPicker color wheel

I can’t believe it was 75 posts ago I started tips&tricks for my extension panel plugins! The first tip was published on Sep 5th, 2011 - about 7 years ago (and on the 3rd year after MagicPicker’s birth). The twitter page was launched in March 2010 (yeah I was quite slow, spending most of the time coding MagicPicker).


You can enjoy all the tutorials for MagicPicker, the Photoshop color wheel on my project’s blog
