Grow/Shrink Selection


Recommended Posts

First, download and install the "Outline Object" plugin ( http://searchpaint.net can find it for you).

Then:

Make your selection.

Create a new layer. ( :AddNewLayer: )

Select the new layer and press the Backspace key to fill the area with your primary color (which color doesn't matter)

Run "Outline Object" to expand the selection size.

Select Magic Wand and use it outside the shape to select the transparent area.

Invert the selection.

Return to the previous layer.

Yay!

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

I think I've just been here for too long. :-P
