How to fill a selection?

Recommended Posts

I have created a new A4 Photo document. Then using the Rectangle Marquee Tool selected some of the document. I then hoped to go to Edit > Fill but it is greyed out. So then I've used the Bucket Fill tool, clicked inside the selection, and nothing happens. I've set the tolerance to 100%, changed the colours in the Colour window and still nothing.

I'm surprised that this isn't mega easy.

Hi Markeeee,
Yes, there must be a layer for you to fill with colour otherwise the command isn't available. Click the Add Pixel Layer icon on the left of the trash icon on the bottom right of the Layer's panel. You can then perform the steps you described in your first post.
