How to change the color of a layer?

Recommended Posts

I can see the opacity controls for Layer Properties, but I can't seem to set the color of the layer itself. How do you do this?


As always, what I'm trying to do is create an overlay "mask" to cover up part of a GUI screenshot. I've learned the hard way that you can't simply draw a box and then move/adjust its properties, so I'm going with a layer as instructed.

You can make a box and move it around. Make a new layer, draw your box where you want it, then use the fill tool ( :PaintBucket:) and the color wheel/palette ( :AllColorChannels:) to change the color. For future reference, ask these questions in the thread designated for Discussion and Questions.
