Since I've been using Photoshop (about fifteen years), when you use the paint bucket tool it only fills the area of color you click on. But for the past couple hours, although I haven't made any changes to the setting, when I use the paint bucket it fills all of the same color on the page.
For instance, let's say I have three non-touching areas of cyan on the page. I want to only fill one of them with orange, but when I click on it, it fills all three areas instead.
I use a plug-in that automatically fills line art with flat colors, and this new quirk of Photoshop renders it almost useless, since now I have to go back to selecting everything with the lasso tool to fill it with color.
By the way, the version of Photoshop I'm using is 7.0.
Check to see if your "Contiguous" option on the fill tool is checked. I know where it is in CS2+, but damned if I can remember in 7...
Check on the tool options bar on top of the program and see if contiguous has been unchecked.
Nope, "contiguous" is not checked. I clicked on it and the problem went away.
Thanks, Inkthinker. I must have hit that check by accident.
