Chapter 14. Advanced Masking > Fill with the Paint Bucket Tool

Fill with the Paint Bucket Tool

Once you've finished highlighting the edge of the image (Figure 14.32), choose the Fill tool and click in the middle of the subject of your photo. When you do that, the Fill tool will completely ignore the photograph you are working on and instead use the highlighting to determine which area should be filled (Figure 14.33). If, after clicking once with the Fill tool, the entire subject is not covered in blue, click on additional areas of the subject that aren't yet covered. If you find that the entire image (minus the highlighting) is covered with blue, that means that your highlighting didn't make it all the way around the subject of the photograph, so go touch up the highlighting and then try to fill the subject again.

Figure 14.32. Make sure your highlighting makes a continuous line around the edge of the subject with no breaks.
