Using the Fill Tool

The Fill tool fills areas of a bitmap with the foreground color.

  1. Select the bitmap you want to edit.
  2. From the Bitmap Edit toolbar, select the Fill tool.
  3. On the Fill Options tab in DesignCentral, adjust the following parameters:


    Specifies the percentage to which the fill will overwrite the bitmap. At 100%, the fill will be completely opaque. At lower values, the fill area will receive less color but will retain more detail.


    Fill tab


    Fill expands until it encounters the edge of the bitmap or a change in color. Tolerance determines how big a change in color the fill will accept before stopping. Tolerance ranges from 0 to 255.

    Enter a low value to fill colors very similar to the pixel you click, or enter a higher value to fill a broader range of colors.









  4. From the Swatch Table, select the foreground color you want to fill with.
  5. Click the cursor on the bitmap.
