Colour selection interface

This panel is for adjusting colours currently the imagery is generated from sampling a colour based on the dept data at any given position on the screen. I have 6 panels of colour that are either gradients or images. The colour placement X,Y component lets me adjust the position of sample swatch effectively changing where the colours are sampled from this was very useful as depth data is different for any space measured, I can slide the texture to get an appropriate palette. Colour scale compresses or expands each sample swatch giving a more or less detailed texture respectively. The black overlay slider allows me to slide some black over the main colour, this effectively gives me fine tuning in removing any background content. The show button makes the sample swatch visible its easier to see whats is going on with the swatch adjustments.
