I'm new to photoshop. This is my first time using the pen tool to draw the path below, but when I use paint bucket it's not filling up the spaces inside the path I have drawn. It fills up some space outside the path. Please help. I'm desperate. I want to make this right.
I have an answer for this question. For your problem I used both illustrator and photoshop to solve this issue. First i created the shape in illustrator using the path tool. Once you create the whole shape then you select all the shape and divide them using the divide path from path finder. Then i copied all the shape in phothsop.
When I copy the shape in photoshop i selected path. Then you can select the parts of the shape using direct path selection tool and then you can separate them by cutting the shape to a new shape layer. You can do it from layer menu. Layer>New>Shape Layers via cut. Then you will see new shape layer has been created in layer panel and then you can easily fill the shape with new color.
Please see the screen capture below.
The answer is very simple: your path is open. As such, photoshop will try to fill all the concave spaces. Make it a closed path (where start and ending point are the same) using the pen tool and it will be filled correctly.
