Have fun hunting for a hidden Easter egg (Photoshop CC/CC 2014/CC 2015)

Easter may only come once a year, but there’s never a wrong time to hunt for a Photoshop Easter egg! Tucked away in obscure places, software engineers have fun planting these little anomalies-which usually appear with help from a key command-and we enjoy uncovering them. This one is especially delicious, and you’ll find it in the preferences! Choose Edit > Preferences > Interface (Photoshop > Preferences > Interface on the Mac). Press on the Mac) and click on one of the color swatches at the top of the dialog box, as shown in Figure A, for the tasty surprise shown in Figure B. Do it again to revert back to the swatches, and then repeat once more for another treat, as shown in Figure C. The breakfast goodies won’t last, however. Once you exit the dialog box the settings revert-so the next time you open the Interface settings, expect to see the standard swatch fare!
