Photoshop 7.0.1
Picture of maury potter
I can't fill my selection - "Fill" in Edit is grayed out.

I created my selection with the pen tool, inversed the selection, but "Fill" is always gray.

My OS is 10.4.11

Are you sure that you are on an unlocked layer?

Note that a Path can and will be visible (if the path is selected in the Paths Palette) regardless of which layer you have selected in the Layers Palette.

There are a lot of variables that can effect what you are attempting to do - so, we could use more specific info. I'd suggest doing the following "as a test", in order to determine where the problem may be - and then provide us your results. Also, please let us know how much experience you have with Photoshop.

• Create a New document.
• Do not make any new layers or turn the Background into a layer.
• Draw a simple path, with the Pen Tool.
• The path will appear in the Paths Palette as a work path.
• Make sure that you have this work path selected in the Paths Palette (it should be visible).
• Also, make sure that you set "any other color but white" as your Foreground Color.
• From within the Paths Palette either fill the path - or turn the path into a selection (running ants), then go to Edit/Fill../choose Foreground Color.

The purpose of this test is to determine if there is a problem with Photoshop, or because you may not be doing something correctly.
