How do you fill an already traced object. I accidentally traced an object with the pen tool but didn't change it to trace shape. Is there a way to fill in the traced object without having to retrace it? I have the item traced already I just want to fill in the things I traced.
Another way after you have created a closed path with the pen tool is to go to the Path window and use the Path menu to select "Make selection". A dialog comes up asking for a feather radius in pixels. Enter your desired radius for the selection. This turns your pen path into a selection. You can then go to Edit -> Fill and fill with any color you have selected in the Forground/background, or you can select a new color, or black/White/50% grey.
