Hi there,

I'm trying to fill my elipses with a colour - when I right click and choose fill, it doesn't fill it correctly - it merely does as the image below. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks ;)

Change Feather=100px to 0px or one you want (in options panel, you can see it under menu panel).

Just tried that and I'm getting the same result - I did think that may have been the issue but when I change the feather it does nothing.

I'm obviously doing something blatantly daft - but can't figure it out. I just keep getting the same result and not filling the circle with the block of colour that I want.

Thanks for coming back to me btw.

Panic over - not sure exactly what I did but I did it somehow using the paintbucket tool.

Great for now but when I have the same problem again I'll be buggered! Thanks! :D

Once you drawed eclipse or marque with feather settings any change in options will not change anything to allready drawed one. So you need change feather before you make eclipse. Should work.

Glad to hear that your problem is sorted out this time. If it helps at all, a short cut to filling a selection with solid colour is...

Make your selection
Add a feather to the selection using Refine Edge
Choose the colour you want as the fill (Foreground colour)
Hit Alt + Backspace on the keyboard.

Your selection will now be filled with whatever the foreground colour is.
