Chapter 9. Using the Paint, Shape Drawin... > Using the Paint Bucket Tool

Using the Paint Bucket Tool

The Paint Bucket tool is not new, in fact it's been around almost as long as Photoshop. The paint bucket's primary function is to fill an area with the active foreground color, but that's not all it's capable of doing. The Paint Bucket tool can fill areas with a selected pattern and, much in the same way that the Magic Wand tool selects image information, the fill area can be controlled by the shift in brightness of image pixels. Combine those features with the ability to change the paint bucket's blending mode, opacity, and you have a tool with a lot of horsepower.
