Stopping automatic blending?
So my problem is shown here

I use the fill tool next to an already established color and it does this blending, I'm assuming it's a simple fix or just user error somewhere, but can anyone tell me how to fix this kind of thing?

Thanks a bunch,


(In case it's important the Gray color was made using the Free Select Tool and Fill with FG Color command and the White was the Bucket Fill tool)

If you were using the bucket fill on a transparent layer (except the white), then

- don't use a selection (or use a selection that includes the existing antialiasing pixels)
- bucket fill the grey after putting the bucket-fill tool in "Behind" mode.

Another (completely equivalent) solution:
- add a layer of the same size under the first
- bucket-fill that whole layer with gray
- merge the layers if strictly necessary (if yo uleave them distinct, you can change the colors later)

If you are trying to paint over an existing color, then use color-to-alpha (or bucket fill with that color in color-erase mode) to make that color transparent, then see above.

I didn't realize it was that simple of a solution, I completely understand about how it makes it look a lot better.

Well that makes this look a lot more polished.

Thanks a lot!
