We are excited to announce a new and improved Photoshop plugin that is simply a joy to use!

For over a year, we worked with the Adobe team to rebuild from the ground up on Adobe’s Unified Extensibility Platform (UXP). We are excited to bring to market a 2x faster, richer Photoshop experience that is optimized for Apple M1 Macs.

From brush control to color editing and from managing custom action to layers, Creative Console provides Photoshop users with the expressive and precise tactile experience of analogue instruments, personalized to their Photoshop workflow.

Some of the Creative Console features for Photoshop

Brush & Tooltip Controls

Monogram’s new Photoshop plugin provides direct access to adjust brush/tooltip size, hardness, opacity, flow, angle, roundness, and spacing with greater ease and precision than hotkeys, menus, or toolbars.

The Monogram plugin panel displays live values for brush size, hardness, opacity, and flow in real-time as they are adjusted. Use Monogram keys to select the blending mode for your active tool or paintbrush.

Precise Color Mixing

Adjust the active tool colors using HSB, RGB, and CMYK mixing models.

Use the unique Orbiter module to mirror the display of the color panel’s Hue Cube and Brightness Cube views, allowing intuitive color mixing in 3 dimensions. Work with specific colors often? Now you can assign any color swatch to keys and dial presses via RGB, HSB, CMYK, or Hex values. Less clicking = more time for creating.

The Monogram plugin panel displays live values for hue, saturation, and brightness in real-time as they are adjusted.

Never hunt through the layer stack again.

Full Layer Stack Support

Never hunt through the layer stack again. Select, add and delete, merge, or group layers with Monogram dials and keys.

Layers can be moved up and down in the stack, or faded in and out using the layer opacity and fill opacity functionality. With full blend mode support, assign your most-used blend modes to Monogram keys for quick access.

Custom Actions

The new Monogram plugin reads the actions panel and makes all actions (including custom sets) assignable to Essential Keys and Dial modules. No shortcuts or menu diving, just one press. Want even more flexibility? Each key supports a second action assignment linked to press-and-hold.

New Monogram Plugin Panel

With the brand new Monogram plugin panel in Photoshop, live values are displayed for key Monogram-controlled attributes in a small, dockable window. The adjustment window provides value updates for brush and tooltip attributes (size, hardness, flow, and opacity) and the foreground color (hue, saturation, brightness, and hex code). This panel can be moved and hidden in order to suit each creator’s preference. Additionally, the adjustment window displays a connection status to Monogram Creator.

Seamless App Switching

Monogram Creative console also offers native integrations—including Lightroom Classic, Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro, MIDI enabled DAWs including Logic Pro and Unreal Engine— and universal app support; automatically reassigning the controls as you switch between apps. This eliminates the need to memorize different keyboard shortcuts for each software.

Easily Expandable

Users can combine modules in any shape or size and optimize for their personal editing workflow and style. Unlike other control surfaces, Monogram’s modular system can be easily expanded by adding or swapping magnetically connected modules without replacing the entire system. Add-on modules can be purchased individually or added to existing consoles at
