im trying to fill in the selection area, but it does this. When i do it over and over again... it fills up but then brings up this ugly looking shadow thingy....

just want it filled in one plain colour.... also, whats the best way to make some stand out like bevel? bevel itself isnt really a good tool......

It's because your creating your selection area with the border tool you mentioned in another thread.

Please don't post images greater than 600px's wide. Use links for those. Thanks.

If you want to create a donut shaped selection, I suggest using guide2 to set up the inner and outer radii and then using the marquee subtraction tool (normal marquee tool + Alt).

hang on, I'll post a screen cap.

So, you can set up your guides, use the marquee to create the outer circle, with the same tool hold the Alt key and subract the inner circle, then you can fill.

;)

I'm sure there are otherways, this is just the one I use.
