Wait... I think I'm confused. Does that mean that all 100% saturated colours have the same value? Wouldn't it work differently for blue and differently for yellow?

Ah, a very good observation - you are correct that not all 100% saturated colors have the same value. You can observe this by making one of Photoshop's infamous "rainbow gradient" fills, which are composed of only 100% saturate colors, and then desaturating it to see that there is some variation in the values. Because of this, you are right that not all colors will have a 1:1 horizontal correlation. The idea of this comparison is to show that it is easier to understand and form useful relationships within the triangular version, but you are right that they are not all exactly the same.

The software is called "Coolorus". It is very reasonably priced and I would encourage people to support the developers for making a painter friendly color tool.

This is EXACTLY what I needed just now, I've been using the triangle picker without understanding the value relationships even though I tried to paint value first.
Thank you SO MUCH!

Thank you for this, it makes a lot of sense! Do you know by any chance if any colors are lost in the triangular color picker as opposed to the square one?
