Welcome to EarlK Design!

The EarlK Design blog consists mainly of entries that show how to do things using Adobe Photoshop that I hope you will find helpful and give your creative mind more tools to work with.

I use Adobe Photoshop CS6, and sometimes Adobe Illustrator CS5, Lightroom 5, and Corel Painter X. However, I believe that much of what I show can be done using Photoshop Elements.

Using the Photoshop Paint Bucket Tool Effectively

Does your Paint Bucket Tool sometimes leave holes in the selection that you are trying to fill with a solid color?  Why doesn't the Paint Bucket work the way you want it to work? Maybe I can help you to understand a little better how the Paint Bucket Tool works. I have created a couple of videos showing some of the basics of how the Paint Bucket Tool works. I have used Photoshop CS4 on an iMac to create the videos. However, I believe that all the information applies to Photoshop Elements.

The first video, Using the Photoshop Paint Bucket Tool Effectively - Part 1, shows you the basics of using the Photoshop Paint Bucket Tool. It shows you why sometimes the Paint Bucket doesn't fill your selection. This is information that will allow you to use the Paint Bucket Tool with more control by you. The second video, Using the Photoshop Paint Bucket Tool Effectively - Part 2, shows you some more, especially about using the All Layers Option of the Paint Bucket Tool.

Sometimes when you want to fill a selection with the Paint Bucket Tool, you want to end up with something like this.

But, instead you get something like this.

Or, maybe you started with something like this.

And you wanted to fill the whole selection with the black foreground color. But instead, this is what you got.

The first video will show you what is going on in the first two images above and the second video will show you about the second two images above.

You will need to enter the Password in order to see the movies. Use the following password to enter both videos.

The Password is:  paintbucket

I hope that this will help you to use your Paint Bucket Tool more effectively.

That's all for now. 

Enjoy life!

Here are six simple and very important tools you need to know and have to learn before you master photoshop. Starting with the Brush Tool, Pencil Tool, Eraser Tool, Paint Bucket Tool, Gradient Tool, Text Tool each tool has it's own part to play in photoshop.
