I want to create a colorramp in the swatch-window. EX:
20 boxes where the first box is 100% black and the las box is 100% red. Between them are black boxes fading to red boxes. I have read that its possible (Digit Magazine) but I dont knoe how.

Sure, its all done manually the same way you would add and subtract color swatches. Set your color sliders to 100% black and then click on an empty spot in your swatch pallet. You should see a paint bucket cursor and the swatch will appear. Then set your color sliders to 95% and repeat down to white or 0%. To remove swatches you hold down the command key (or pc equivalent) and click on the swatch you want to remove.

Well I knew that I could add a color to the swatch window manually. I want to add them automaticly. For those who have used the old AMIGA prog - "AA Animator" knows what I'm talking about:
A way to create 10 or 20 or even 200 boxes with fading colors. Weed's way will take forever if you want 200 boxes (not that I want 200 but 20 or so - fast.)

anyway, thanx for aswering, weed.

There isnt an automatic solution. You could probably get the applescript photoshop plugins and write an applescript to do it but if youre on a PC thats not really going to work. You would have to learn applescript as well. I even tried illustrator to see if you could somehow import a stepped and expanded blend. No such luck. Youre going to have to bite the bullet on this one.
