How to fill a shape in photoshop and avoid white lines


This is something it will be useful for several things now that I started "photoshoping" - so I made some lines with the pen tool, then right clicked with the 'direct selection' and then 'stroke path' to paint the lines.

Now, this lines are closed, they make a shape, if I paint the inside with the bucket tool it creates white spaces inbetween the border and the filling!

How does one fill properly in photoshop?

When you right click to "Stroke Path" there's also a function to "Fill Path" you could use it. I suggest using it first.

Alternatively you can Right Click to Fill the Path then go to Layer > Layer Style > Stroke and this will give you much more control over the stroke.

There's rarely ever a reason to use the Paintbucket in Photoshop.
