Problem with fill tool application

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,


Just a quick question. I'm editing a map on paint.net which I drew on paper first and then scanned. I wanted to use the fill tool to make the ocean blue, but there must be near-invisible little gaps in most of my landmasses, since they turned blue too. I might be able to find them by trial and error/sealing off certain areas, but since my map is so big (almost 10000 x 10000 pixels) it takes literally 3 minutes for for it to fill. Does anyone know of a faster way to find these little pixel-wide gaps?


Thanks :)

Instead of looking for the gaps tedious, I would rather amplify a little the lines with which the land masses are hopefully surrounded by an effect such as "Stylize → Outline" or "Artistic → Contour".
