How To Use The Paint Bucket Tool In Photoshop + Common Problems (how To Fix)

Transcript:

Yo, what’s going on, ladies and gentlemen, reven here and welcome to another tutorial a while ago. I made a video about a tutorial on the paint bucket tool in Adobe Illustrator, and someone asked me to do the same thing on Photoshop. So here you go to be completely honest. I’ve never actually used the paint bucket tool in Photoshop a lot, so I did some research and I will tell you everything you need to know about the paint bucket tool in Photoshop. Alright, so let’s get started. I will also cover some problems you might encounter and how to fix them so to get started. We’ve got a drawing or pick it you over here and with the paint bucket tool, we’re gonna color it in. So how do you do that well? The paint bucket tool is on the left side underneath the gradient tool. So this is probably how you how it looks for you so. I’m gonna Grady until you got the paint bucket tool. If you don’t want to find out, you can just press the shortcut. G or you can hold shift and G to toggle between the tools underneath that one. So now you got paint bucket tool. Alright, so get the picket over here, so you will see some error form that you can’t do what you want to do, and that’s because you have to rest. Rise the layer first. So if you click once your pet, you will get this notification. You need to restaurants it so okay, and now you can use the paint bucket tool. Alright, so I will also give you a quick tip. I’ve got like a color palette over here. You can just make one by using some what’s called? I need that one. Just make some circles choose a couple colors with the stroke off and you can do different. Simon, you know, just say, okay, cool, no. I got this one, so you got your own color palette. It’s really easy to work with a color palette in this situation. All right, so we’re gonna call her in the Pikachu. So we got the Pachuco selected. We’re gonna press G to activate the paint bucket tool and I would just color it in. If you hold option or alt, you see people change to the eyedropper tool, so you can just select a color from your palette, so we want to select the yellow. We just click once in the middle and it’s selected and it’s yellow, a couple of tips on the top. You will see Anti-alias and it could be contiguous hope. I pronounced that, right. Alright, let me show you what it does. If you do not have continuous selected, it will fill every color or every part of your layer where you’re on without line. So for example now. I’m actually selecting the color white in the picture and it will. Yes, it will turn every single piece of white in this layer together, so that’s why you need to take away. So the lines were actually function is some kind of a border, so you have to be the only colors in between the Borders anti-aliased it’s kind of a weight one, So if you, for example, look at this line over here and I will just fit it in like that, You will see a little bit of a white line over here, and if you poop the anti-alias:on it’s kind of gone, so that’s that so just put it on, or it will have like a really ugly white line. It’s really hard to see. You can see that a little bit, so I would just suggest to just keep it on and it’s all fluent. Yeah, that’s actually pretty much most what you need to know, so let’s just color in. Do so with the optional. Alt key looks like the color from our color palette. Just keep clicking and is in effect, Pikachu, and that’s it! So now we’ve got a Pikachu, and it’s all good, so that’s one thing now we got another thing because I was thinking about situations. You might want to use the paint back to, and that could be if you want to make an illustration, my opinion, I would use Adobe Illustrator, But if some people would like to draw or paint in Photoshop, then you might encounter some different problems, So I just drew a quick squirtle. I know it looks very sexy for just don’t bother or don’t mind it, and we’re gonna try to call it that it. So it’s already restaurant. We’ve got the colors over here. A color palette and as you, for example, can see, that’s let’s take this one if we want to select that color blue and fill that part in, you will see you have a white line even with entities. If it’s you put it off, it’s even worse, you see, that’s because you have like a soft brush with, like it fades away at the end and the edges. So that’s how you got it. So what is a way to fix it? Well, it’s not really, actually. The paint bucket. -, it’s the magic. One – magic wand – is under the shortcut. W under the quick selection tool and object selection tool, you will just select the area which you want to fill. I do recommend to make a new layer and put it underneath the layer. So this is the squirtle layer and this is just an empty layer, so you’re gonna select the area which you want to fill, and you’re gonna expand it. And how do you expand it? You go to after it. Select modify expand. That’s it cool, so you’re just selected by or explain about. Let’s say three pixels. No, that is too much. We’re gonna modify it by two pixels and then we’re gonna go back to the pain rocker to G go through your another layer or do the layer beneath it, and we fill it up and now you see, it’s a lot better what I do is it’s just to lead that one is, you’ve got the quick selection tool or the Magic Wand tool, and I’ve made actually a shortcut for it. Today’s command, option and X anger the same thing, and then you just switch layer, go to paint the paint bucket tool and it’s all done. How do you put it in as a shortcut? Because it’s not standard, a shortcut or by default. You will go to edit keyboard shortcuts. Just put it over there. You will go down to what’s. It called no, it’s not added select. Yes, select. And then you got it up here. You can select your own shortcut over here, so I got command option X. If I just delete that one, it’s command option X from expand and you hit, OK, and then you, you use that shortcut for yourself. Now, that way you can just fill in the rest of squirtle. Pretty much do. I got different things. You got opacity and tolerance over here. The tolerance is actually. Well, you won’t be actually needing it a lot. You can put it a bit higher. It’s mostly if you want if you already have a painting, so let’s say, for example, so let’s say, for example, so if I want to color in this green and I put the tolerance, let’s say at 255 then it should be coloring but contiguous off it colors like pretty much everything because the range of colors is really high If you put it on except for wand, that will only color the green, so the tolerance is actually the range of colors. It will fill or yet filled with the paint bucket tool, which changes a little bit from the Kaalia selected. So now we have selected your ones over here, and if you put the tolerance really high, it will have a really wide margin of colors. It will also change. Then you let the opacity well pretty much. The present is just the way it will feel just a little bit, just a little bit of orange like you’ll get your blending to colors, so if I put the opacity, so let’s say, for example 100 and I will make this part [Music] yellow and change the opacity to 40 and pick the color blue. You left kind of greenish, so that’s pretty much it. What I can tell you about the paint bucket tool in Photoshop? If you have any questions, put them in a comment section below.
