Use Filler Tool on Photoshop CS6
Edited by Freya, Crystal, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. In this tutorial, I'm going to show you how you can use the filler tool on Photoshop CS6 in Windows 7.
To begin, we should have Photoshop open with a new or existing document.
Once we do, our screen will look like the tutorial. We can see that this particular document is in its own tab on the left-hand side. If we open another document it will be next to it on the right-hand side.
On the column on the left-hand side, click the bucket icon.
This is a very simple filler tool.
We can click the color box at the very bottom to change the color.
Select the color and click "OK".
Now we click what we'd like to color.
That particular color will be filled in as a block color. This is a bit of a difficult example because it's quite messy at the bottom. If it's a neat circle, for example, then it's great. In this case, we're better off using the selection tool, which we demonstrate in another video.
We can right-click on the bucket on the left-hand side to open a menu.
From here, we can get our Gradient tool.
In this example, we will see that it's going from red to white in this example. We don't have a bucket anymore, we have a little cross for a cursor.
We hold down the left mouse button and pull the line across as far as we'd like.
If we do a very long line, the gradient will look slightly different. We can do a line diagonally, which will make the line pixelated.
Let go of the left mouse button to add a gradient.
This takes over the entire canvas. It doesn't matter what our background image is, the gradient will take over the whole canvas unless we've selected a specific area. We can see that this gradient is half white and half red.
If we do a very small gradient, then it's a very sudden color switch.
If we go from edge to edge, we see it's a much more gradual gradient.
We can also make it diagonal and experiment.
We can change our second color by clicking the arrow icon in the bottom left-hand corner.
Change the color and click "OK".
Now it goes from purple to red.
This concludes the tutorial on how you can adjust the filler tool on Photoshop CS6 in Windows 7.
