The beginning of the video should say "Imagine you could..." instead of "Image you could..."
Yeah, thanks – I didn't find the time yet to update the video :-)
Holy crap! Seriously useful. Thanks!
It's telling that third parties have to build in features for photoshop to mimic features already in Sketch.
Except that's a 10 years old feature from Fireworks.
It's been in a lot of products previously from Macromedia. They all have been discontinued.
Well, to be fair, it's also in Illustrator and InDesign (and probably other Adobe apps). Photoshop is the outlier here and this tool is solving that problem.
On a side note, why does every piece of software want a login for the little things? I mean, why do I need to secure down my color palettes into your giant lock box in the sky? Couldn't this have been an offline plugin, functioning just fine?
Where I can find it in sketch?
+1. No idea where it is in Sketch
Sketch calls them "Symbols"
comically, this is the exact behavior of illustrator's builtin Global Process Color swatches. I understand that photoshop became a popular tool for mocking up designs, but it seems like there has been a puzzling duplication of effort as a result of eschewing illustrator.
if this excites you, don't wait for prisma, illustrator already offers swatches which can be shared easily as .ase's and organized and persist across multiple open files and can be parsed in python even. and illustrator even supports vector shapes out of the box!!
Hey Marcos – thanks for the feedback! I am the developer of Prisma ;-)
Prisma is actually not just a global color swatch panel. It already supports synchronization of colors between multiple Photoshop documents, something that is not present in any Adobe product today.
But here are the bigger goals of Prisma:
- Sync colors between documents of multiple graphic programs (e.g Photoshop and Illustrator)
- Integration of better color picker (with real-time color picking)
- Sharing of projects between multiple team members
- Simple real-time and REST API for 3rd party developers
- Expanding the workflow to CSS with SASS / LESS variables
You see, its just the beginning! I released Prisma so early because I figured that global color swatches for Photoshop are already useful for many people.
very neat, it's quite ambitious! i've gone down this rabbit hole in a completely passive way rather than tackling it as part of the active design process.
i'm curious to see what else comes from prisma!
Sounds great, have to try this. Thx for sharing.
Unlinking doesn't work here, anyone got the same problem? Also when you collapse the panel and expand again it reload's the extension.
Thanks for your feedback!
Unlinking swatches is a feature that will come within the next week! Unfortunately there is no way around reloading the extension when reopening the panel ;-)
I don't see it as being incredibly useful. Swatches work perfectly for me.
"The code you entered was not valid or has expired. Don't worry, just click the button below to send a new one!"
Keep resending code and keep receiving this error. Anyone else?
Edit: Now it just crashes on relaunch. Buggy!
Hey Andy, could you resolve the issues?

Awesome tool, it's a shame it doesn't just build upon the normal swatch functionality though. I can't click in the swatch with a colour picker dialog window open to get the colour value.
No crashes for me; Windows Photoshop CC 14.2. Hope you guys fix the issues.
Not meaning to sound negative, but doesn't this already exist? You can select multiple text boxes and change the color in the Character Panel. Also, you can copy/paste Shape Attributes with color. I guess it might make it a bit easier. I thought/was hoping it was going to be a synced and manageable swatch palette across multiple documents.
You can do it with Bjango actions supposedly, but yes it looks way easier this way.
Yeaaaaaaaaah this is SUCH a great idea !!
This is good, but I also need something to store values for pantones in Indesign, Illustrator. Across multiple computers! Wonder if such tool exist in OSX yet...
Thanks! But I'm looking for a tool that allow to create a database of swatches, like you would create a database of fonts shared across computers :)
Giving this a try now, this looks so useful. Thanks Mariusz.
Edit: Damn, it crashes whenever I try to use it. CS6 on 10.9.2. Anyone manage to get this working?
Its crashing here too. I've tried to disable other extensions but didn't work.
Crashing for me too using PS CC. Any ideas?
Crashing as well.
Crashes for me too. 10.7.5 with CC

Hope this helps!
