Join Daniel Lieske for an in-depth discussion in this video Paint Bucket, part of Drawing and Painting in Photoshop - The Great Training.
- We've talked a lot about the brush tool…but there are actually more tools…we can use to bring color to the digital canvas.…For example, the paint bucket tool.…The paint bucket tool fills an area…of our digital canvas with a flat color.…So, let's say take a green color.…If I now click into my clear canvas,…it's filled with my chosen color.…What I can also do is, if I have an area…in my image that is defined by a clear boundary,…I can fill only this area.…
If I take my paint bucket tool now…and choose a new color and click into…this rectangle here, the paint bucket…will only fill the rectangle.…But, be careful.…If my border is not completely closed,…you will end up to fill…the whole canvas again with the paint bucket…because the paint leaks through…this opening here.…
Let's just make some more boundaries…to experiment with the paint bucket tool.…You can use the paint bucket with transparency…so we can lower the opacity here in the Options bar…and if we now fill this little square,…it won't be filled with full opacity…
