Bucket Fill in Shapes

May 2, 2012 4:14 AM

I am using the Bloc Theme from YooThemes for my webpage: ns/stripes/page_bg_img.png


I'm looking to fill in those 3 colors with three colors that I have designed myself.


I used the eyedropper to pick up colors from other files and tried to fill the shapes. No matter what I've done - even using the pen tool to close in the shape the fill goes all over the whole page.Appreciate your help.


When I fill in the colors how can I also keep the 3-D effect?

    If you are unwilling to properly rebuild those stripes you could try to create Vector Masks, then level them with Curves Layers (and desaturate the red one with a Hue/Saturation Layer) and use Sold Color Layers set to Blend Mode Multiply.

    • Create a Path

    • Create a Group (Layer > New > Group) and apply the Vector Mask (Layer > Vector Mask > Current Path)

    • Create a Curves Layer and try to get the affected stripe to more or less match up with the white one

    • Create a Solid Color Layer (Layer > New Fill Layer > Solid Color) and set the color you want

    • Set the Solid Fill Layer to Multiply
