Activating the Color Picker
Activating the Color Picker can be achieved by clicking within the foreground color or background color box in the Tool Box. Other dialog boxes will also activate the Color picker when a new color is desired. Typically clicking within a color box will activate the Color Picker.

Looking at Colors
By default the Adobe™ Color Picker displays the foreground color currently associated with the hue setting in the HSB group. Radio buttons beside each of the HSB and RGB respectivly will show you a different perspective of the current color choice. By clicking the different radio buttons the contents of the color field change. Clicking on the checkbox "Only Web Colors" will display only web safe colors in the color field.
