Chapter 2. Jumping In with the Basics > Paint Bucket and Color

Paint Bucket and Color

Now we're ready for some color. The first thing we're going to do is make a light blue background for our image. Our tool for that job is the paint bucket. The paint bucket is used to color in areas with a solid color. To use the paint bucket:

1.
Click on the Paint Bucket tool in the Photoshop toolbar (see Figure 2-7).

2.
Click anywhere inside your new document.

3.
Wait a minute. Wrong color (see Figure 2-8).
