How to get rid of the Grey?

Recommended Posts

It's caused by your edges being antialiased (smoothed). The pixels that are used to 'smooth' the edge are not being colored along with the rest of the region. This is because they are not similar enough to the pixel you clicked the tool on.

Try fine tuning the tolerance setting in the toolbar. Increasing the % will fill more pixels, decreasing the % will fill less pixels.

Another way to solve the issue is to use the magic wand tool to select the area you wish to fill, then add a new layer and fill the selection with color. After deselecting, use the outline object plugin to your preferred settings. This is done to try to keep the edge from becoming pixelated while you are filling the surroundings.
