New Question about filling magic wand selected areas with a copy.

Recommended Posts

Hi again,

 

     So....what I want to do is take a copy from a color patch and have it fit the shape of a selected magic wand shape on a drawing. What do I need to do?

Greetings,

Your color patch looks more like a texture patch.
I would use the Wand Tool as you illustrated and place the texture patch layer under it and merge the top layer on to it.

Repeat steps as necessary.

In the magic wand image, Ctrl+Alt+Shift+C to copy the selection shape to the clipboard. On the color image, Ctrl+Alt+Shift+V to paste the selection shape.

Move the selection if needed, Ctrl+C to copy a piece of the color in that shape and Ctrl+V on the pencil image. That's one way?

If your texture is in a separate file, there is a plugin in my pack that can help.

 

Effects > Fill > From File

What do you mean by "fit the shape"? If you just want to change the angle and size, you could try using my Paste From Clipboard plugin. The selection will restrict the area that gets changed. If you mean somehow conform to the shape, that would be difficult, considering the complex, non-convex shape of the selection.

One thing ... no matter how careful you are with the Magic Wand tolerance to get as smooth a shape as possible, you'll still get a slightly jaggy look.

 

One way to combat it would be to use something like BoltBait's Outline Object after using the Colour Picker tool on your texture
