Chapter 11.  Using Other Editing Tools  > Filling with the Paint Bucket

Filling with the Paint Bucket

Use the Paint Bucket tool to fill a contiguous area of color (or similar colors) with the current foreground color.

NOTE

The Paint Bucket tool doesn’t work on shape layers. To work around this issue, create a new layer using the Layer, New Layer command. Choose the shape layer in the Layers palette and select and copy its content using the Edit, Copy Merged command. Then choose the new layer you created in the Layers palette and use the Edit, Paste command to paste the content onto it. You can then delete the shape layer and erase as needed on the new layer.
