New Heads Up Display for HSL selection with matching color bar.

Function keys F1 to F8 are set as the default super keys for each HSL color. Pressing one of them will pop-up the new heads up display showing you the new Hue/Sat/Lum options along with the matching HSL color. Simply hover your cursor over one of these H/S/L buttons to change the HSL selector. Hovering over the B&W button will convert your photo to black and white. Likewise, hovering over one of the Hue, Sat or Lum buttons will convert your photo back to color.
