Coolorus 2.0 and Adobe CC 2014 Products

As you've probably already noticed Coolorus is not compatible with new version of Photoshop - CC 2014. This is because Adobe CC 2014 applications (and probably all future updates too) don't support Flash Panels. It means that we need to port Coolorus to HTML5, which literally means rewriting it from scratch. Right now we're researching the stuff, as the final version of HTML5 API for panels was released just few weeks ago. We cannot give you any dates yet, but stay tuned, as we've already started working on it.

Why there's only Photoshop version of Coolorus 2.0

We decided to focus mainly on Photoshop version which is the most popular version. But don't worry we have plans to port our other apps as well, but in a later time. Until that we have lower the price of 1.3 for both products to $6.99, Flash and Mac OSX

Undo/Redo in CS5 is greyed out. Why??

This is a know bug, unfortunately there isn't any good way to fix this, because it's CS5 issue which won't be fixed on Adobe side. To workaround this problem simply change keyboard shortcuts for Undo/Redo to Step Backward (Cmd/Ctrl+Z) and Step Forward (Shift+Cmd/Ctrl+Z). When using those functions everything seems to work as expected

Will Coolorus support Retina Displays?

Coolorus supports Retina Displays from the beginning. Unfortunately Adobe untill version CC hasn't support Retina flash panels, so can't have Retina Coolorus on CS6 and earlier. That's not the case for Mac version of Coolorus.

Why do I have to pay for Coolorus?

We've spend many hours designing, coding and testing not only Coolorus, but also a website, server-side logic etc. It was necessary to provide a high quality product that actually works on most of soft and hardware configurations. That's why we charge for it, and we strongly belive that Coolorus is worth paying less than 12 bucks.

I'm getting 'Activations limit for this license reached' error, why?

I'm getting 'This is trial version of Coolorus. Either your settings do not allow plugins to access internet or our servers are temporarily unavailable' error, why?

Why I can't install Coolorus on OSX Lion using Extension Manager?

If Adobe Extension Manager does not allow you to install CS5 version of Coolorus on OSX Lion ('valid signature' error), installing this patch should help.
