Photoshop :: Disappearing Tools - Paint Bucket

May 15, 2004

I'm a relative newbie to Photoshop and recently upgraded from 5.5 -> 6.0 (yep I'm new and already behind ). For some reason the Paint Bucket tool does not show up in the Toolbox and I can't figure how to find it. I know its still there because its in the help and I tried all the Shortcuts trying to make it show up but no good. Any ideas how to find the Paint Bucket tool and better yet how do I make it permanent part of the Toolbox again.

Photoshop :: Brush Tools Etc Disappearing As They...

Dec 1, 2008

I have photoshop CS4 running with NVIDIA graphics cards on both my desktop PC and Laptop running Windows XP Pro 32 bit. When I use any of the brush, erase, etc tools as the brush enlarges it slowly starts to disappear. When the tool is very large it totally disappears. I was given a suggestion earlier in this forum to update the NVIDIA drivers which I did and this fixed the problem until I had to uninstall photoshop and reinstall it. Now I have the problem back again and can't seem to fix it. I tried reinstalling the drivers but this did not help.

With regard to my laptop I am using a newish Hewlett Packard Mobile Workstation model Compaq 5810w. I have tried to update the drivers for the NVIDIA Quadro FX 570M card but the NVIDIA websites says that for laptops the drivers are supplied by the manufactuer of the laptop - I have tried HP.

Photoshop :: How To Use Paint Bucket

Jan 17, 2013

I made an outline of an image with the line tool and I read online that it only creates vectors or something. The solutions online told me to rasterize or flatten my layers. So I rasterized them but the paint bucket fills the whole screen with no regards to the lines I made.

Bottom Line: I made an outline using Line Tool, rasterized all my layers, used the paint bucket but the paint bucket covers the entire screen. I'm 100% sure there aren't any "holes" between the line segments btw.

Photoshop :: Paint Bucket Fills

Mar 29, 2013

I am working on a project where I am doing hand drawn rotoscope (think waking life).  For larger areas I am drawing the outline and then filling the shape with the paint bucket.  The problem is that the fill doesn't go all the way to the edge of the outline. The anti-aliasing on the brush seems to be creating it, but I don't want to turn anti-aliasing off.  It will be a huge time saver for me to figure this out.

Photoshop :: CS6 - Paint Bucket Tool

Dec 16, 2012

I am used to work with Photoshop. Unfortunately there is a bug in the paint bucket tool of Photoshop CS6. I made all updates up to 13.0.1 (x64).

Description: The paint bucket tool is very tricky to use now. If you want to fill a certain empty area of a picture with a simple color, it often does not do that. My clicks are totally correct, also the position ... but it does not take it. Sometimes I have to zoom in some 100% until my clicks are successful and the desired areas are filled with color.

Photoshop :: Paint Bucket Into Layers

Dec 21, 2004

I would like to know how to fill an object on a layer using paintbucket and then isolate the fill onto its own layer. I swear I've done this before, but may have been dreaming. I am using a base drawing and would like to overlay fills and have the ability to control what is seen by turning on and off layers of paintbucket without having to duplicate that base drawing. Did that make sense? I am trying to avoid drawing an excessive amount of shapes.

Photoshop :: Problem With The Paint Bucket

Dec 7, 2002

I was trying to go through the blue metal shpere tutorial and I got stuck. I drew mt circle with the marqee tool and then I tried to fill it with a different color.

The paint bucket did put the other color in but it didn't fill it all the way. It was a solid color in the center of the sphere but it started to fade out the further out you went. I just want it to fill in solid not fade. What is the problem here?

Photoshop :: Paint Bucket Tool Not Working

Mar 28, 2009

Ok, this is about as basic as you can get. What would prevent the paint bucket tool from working? Here are the steps I am taking to try to create a web page: Clicked on:

File->New Set 800 x 600, RGB Color, 72 Pix, and Contents is White.

Selected my foreground color and set it to E0EFFF

Clicked Paint bucket Tool

Clicked in the middle of the page.

Nothing happens.

Also tried using the Rectangular Marquee Tool to select an area within the page, and tried using the pain bucket to fill that in, but that didn't work either.

Photoshop :: Paint Bucket Tool And Rounded Corners

Sep 9, 2012

I have been using the bucket tool in order to fill the background of some images, but after a while the color I selected resulted in a different shade. For example, black resulted in grey and so on. What can be the source of this? Have I accidentally selected something which does this?
Another problem I have is about creating rounded corners for an image. I used this tutorial


and it worked great the first few times, but than the area around the corners became white instead of being transparent. I followed the exact steps as in that tutorial but with no effect.

Example: it looks OK, but that's because of the white background of the page, move it to some place which is colored and the white areas appear. Also, is there another, easier way to create this rounded corners?

Photoshop :: CS5 - Filling Area With A Pattern By Using Paint Bucket

I have CS5 extended.  I know with coral draw I can use a paint bucket to fill an area with a premade pattern and on CS5 I found the pattern stamp tool where I can paint a pattern but is there a way to dump or fill a set area with a pattern?  I find when I paint a pattern even the smallest mistake of painting a section twice can lighten or darken the pattern.

Photoshop Elements :: Cursor Change In Paint Bucket

Oct 1, 2012

I’m getting a strange cursor when I use the Paint Bucket tool. Instead of the bucket with the pointy bit to show where you’re aiming, I get three tiny paint buckets in a horizontal line, looking a bit like a fragmented ruler, so it is impossible to see where the point of the paint  bucket is. I have used CAPS LOCK to get the crosshairs but would refer the normal setting to be available too.
I have shut down the PC and restarted with PS9 as the only app open but I still get this funny cursor. Some of the cursors from other tools are also affected, esp. when I left-click.Have I changed a setting by accident?
