"Selection Modifier"

Recommended Posts

Starting with your original selection, the best way to do this is like this:

1. Add a new layer (and select it if necessary)

2. Press the backspace key. This will fill your selection with your primary color.

3. Press the ESC key to deselect.

4. Use Gaussian Blur. Set the blur amount the size you wish to expand your selection.

5. Use the magic wand tool and set the tolerance to 0.

6. Click in the transparent area of your new layer.

7. Press Ctrl-I to invert your selection.

8. Make your new layer invisible.

Select your original layer and you should be all set!

Thanks, BoltBait, I thought there must be a way. :)

You don't think this could be made into a plug-in do you? I have no idea how they work. =P

I also "amazingly" found out that you can you the "Feather" blur set to shrink, and then use similar steps, but with a ahigh tolerance on the magic wand.
