that's the point - i _don't_ think it's all that complicated.  if i did, 
i wouldn't have designed it that way.  but i'm not a new user, or 
even an average user or, which is why i asked for opinions.

what i really need to know is what you think is complicated about it.  
that'll help me in simplifying it and making it more intuitive.

you apparently missed the part where i said i wanted to put them back in 
the same tab.  despite that i specifically said that in the paragraph 
below the links, and then later described the dialog with the image and 
color controls right next to each other.

ah well.
