Anastasiy ships MixColors 3.0

Anastasiy Safari has released MixColors 3.0, the latest update to his physically accurate colour mixer plugin for Photoshop, adding a new Smart Color Groups system and support for keyboard shortcuts.

Mix colours as if they were real oil, acrylic or watercolour paints
First released in 2014, MixColors lets artists mix colours as if they were real oil, acrylic or watercolour paints.

Users can either drag colour swatches onto the mixing palette or sample them from an image using the Eyedropper tool, then use a slider to control the mixing process.

To that, MixColors 3.0 adds support for Smart Color Groups. The system automatically generates a gradient between two selected colours and samples a user-definable number of swatches from it.

There is also now the option to assign keyboard shortcuts to common operations when using the plugin, including the ability to Undo and Redo operations or clear the colour history entirely.

Pricing and availability
MixColors 3.0 is available for Photoshop CS3 and above on Windows and Mac OS X. It costs $19.
