Style for filling Shapes

This dialog enables you to select a special type of filling an area. It is used by all fill tools like filled circle/rectangle/polygon and the flood fill tool.




Fill modes

Solid color Is used to fill the foreground or background color, depending which mouse button you used with the drawing tool
Current Paint Mode Fills with the current paint mode
Outline Surrounds the filling area with a pixel line
Circular Gradient Creates a circular color shade centered to the specified start point
Horizontal Gradient Creates a horizontal color shade starting at the specified pixel column and spreading to left and right
Vertical Gradient Creates a vertical color shade starting at the specified pixel line and spreading to top and bottom
Linear Gradient Creates a color shade of the given orientation
Horizontal Line Contour Gradient Creates a horizontal color shade that is always fitted to the width of the current pixel line
Vertical Line Contour Gradient Creates a vertical color shade that is always fitted to the height of the current pixel column
Contour Gradient Creates a color shade that is fit to the whole shape that is to be filled
Radial Gradient Creates a radial color shade
Brush Pattern Uses the current brush shape as a tiled pattern
Brush Wrap Matches the current brush to the shape of the area that is to be filled

To increase the filling area when using flood filling you can add set a tolerance value. If this value is "0" only the selected color will be used. The larger the value is the more neighbour colors will be filled too.

There are two different dither schemes:
Ordered dithering increases the virtual color depth by applying an ordered dither pattern.

Random dithering increases the virtual color depth by mixing neighboring pixels randomly.

Check Isolated Fill to only fill areas that are connected. If unchecked all areas in the image matching the color to replace will be filled.
