Photoshop Elements Tutorial Tools - Paint Bucket

Posted by Lynne Phillips on

Let’s continue our exploration of Photoshop Elements tools.


The next tool we will look at is the Paint Bucket. I don’t use it much in creating my scrapbook pages, but I do use it when I am designing my digital scrapbook kits. Let’s take a look at it. The name pretty much says it all. Use it to colorize different areas in your image.

Open your photo that you want to use. I have chosen a picture of a tee shirt from Myrtle Beach.

Select the Paint Bucket tool from the Tools panel in Expert Mode and set your Foreground color.

I have chosen a bright green, so that changes are apparent.

  • To use the Paint Bucket tool, simply click the area to be painted.
  • Continue with the Paint Bucket, until you have achieved the desired results.
  • Tip – If an area that you want to color doesn’t have closed lines, the color will seep into adjacent areas. You can zoom in and by using the brush tool, close the line.
