Go to your PSP folders and in "All Lessons", "Baby Bees" make a new folder name: Paint Bucket

 

This is a very easy and quick lesson.....

The paint bucket is referred to as the flood fill tool. So when you see lessons or tutorials that your working on that says "Flood fill" it is referring to the paint bucket on your tool bar.

You can use the flood fill tool to fill an entire background or along with the selections tool you can flood fill only a portion of your project that you specify. You can flood fill color, gradient or patterns.

Lets just work with the tool to get you use to it.

8. Now click on your paint bucket.

9. Move your mouse over your window and just click. With your bk layer activated you should see something like this: Depends on your color that you choose. Notice since the window has transparent parts to it that the color appears behind the window.

If you get something like this:

Then you just flood filled the wrong layer.
