Click the marquee tool, make the size/shape you want, click paint bucket tool, select the color you want, fill. Click the marquee tool again, move to another area, fill. The advantage of this is that you can maintain your selected size while doing other things, like creating new layers. If you screw up, you can always reselect (or press shift+ctrl+D) and get it back.

Alternatively, you can highlight the area you *don't* want filled, select inverse (or press shift+ctrl+I), and then use the paint bucket tool.

Of course, there might be an easier way, but I have this programmed by now
Just wanted to expand on this.

For CS4 users, Adobe made it a little differently. If you load the whole selection, you can't smooth, contract, expand or feather the selection anymore (greyed out). Instead, there's a new option called border (surprise!). So in case of CS4, it's:

New layer > Load Selection (Ctrl-A) > Modify - Border > Fill the resulting selection with black.

The problem is, 3px and above contains a somewhat strange anti-alias that ruins it all. So, for CS4 and possibly all newer versions, when you want a 3px+ border (which, luckily, is not that often), you have to fill the layer, make sure the fill opacity is 0% (for the layer, not the paint bucket tool) and then inside stroke it with the desired color/layer effect/opacity/whatever in the layer style window.

Of course, that's just for the classical borders. For any special variations, check the above post Solace made.

Ah, yes, thanks for explaining that. I went back to CS3 after the [FAILURE] that CS4 is on my machine, so I didn't take that into account.

1) Make border as normal. On a new layer of course
2) Ctrl+T
3) Press shift.. expand to the left/right if you wanted top and bottom border, or expand to up/bot if you wanted left and right border.

Wait, what? Performance-wise, or...?

Well, I guess that's evolution.

Some sacrifices must be made to make room for further improvement. But I understand your reasons. I guess you're lucky to not become as addicted to the new additions as I am.

I have a doubt about one of the tutorials...


From the tutorial index (the "advanced optimitation tutorial" link):

Basically for a gif, the less movement or changes between frames there are, the smaller the filesize.


For example, look at this gif:



Not much movement, yes?
So the filesize should be small... woah ! 62 KB?
But only the eyes and mouth are moving!

...Or is it?
Upon closer inspection you will realise that the background isn't consistant.
This is very common when making gifs from anime footages. (esp. fansubs, as the videos are compresssed)
The variance in the background contributes to the filesize.

So let's get started on reducing the size!
Spoiler:

The trick is knowing which parts of the gifs you want to be moving and which parts to be static.
In this case, we only want the eyes and mouth to move, everything else should stay static.
So, we select the eyes and mouth, and delete the rest of the background EXCEPT for the first frame.
We need the first frame as the reference for the background.
Spoiler:

Finally, just make the first frame show up for the rest of the frames.
Spoiler:

Walla~



36 KB!
Thats better.

Till next time, folks.

Oh, and don't forget to worship the impish, but adorable Hagino Kana!
Or she'll throw another tantrum.


I understand how it works....but how can i select the parts i want to delete with imageready?

With...the selection tool? I don't exactly remember how I worked with it back then (it's a few years already), but after googling some images of the program's UI, there seems to be the tool included.

I use that kind of technique all the time. The easiest thing for me is just to erase the parts you want to delete with the eraser tool.
