I am making a map with Photoshop, and it's very hard for me to bucket things. I can bucket countries fine, but when I add the country names the paint bucket just colours in everything, literally the whole picture. I've tried lowering the tolerance, and the magnetic lasso just isn't accurate enough for cartography. (By the way, I am using Photoshop CS6)

Make sure you've selected the layer of the map when using the paint bucket, not some other layer above it.

No, not all layers, only the current layer. Contiguous, yes. Anti-alias, yes.
