Just a theoretical question here.
Why is the color wheel selector in blender white in the center? Is there any reason not to use the neutral colors that usually are in the center of the color wheel?

    $\begingroup$ It's just a system that represents the color in HSV space. What exactly do you mean? $\endgroup$ – someonewithpc Nov 11 '14 at 18:58

  • $\begingroup$ someonewithpc, I was pointing that comonly the midle of the circle is a neutral desaturated gray. Your coment about HSV make me think about the color space and that answered a lot of my question. Thank you! $\endgroup$ – Jamingrone Nov 12 '14 at 20:19

You can change the color selector type in the user preferences. To open user preferences, press CtrlAltU then under the System tab change the Color Picker Type. I think you may be looking for the Circle (HSL) type.
