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.
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.
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.
