If you've got a black-and-white picture you want to fill in with color, follow these easy steps  ':p'

On the picture's layer...

1) Ctrl-A
2) Ctrl-X
3) Q
4) Ctrl-V
5) Q
6) Ctrl-Shift-I
7) Edit > Fill > "Black"


Ta-da. You now have black lineart devoid of any white space. Use it well! '<img'>

That's an interestng technique.  I haven't had great success in the past with the "fill"ing of anything, so I typically just set my black & white layer to multiply and then put color in on about a dozen layers beneath it.  '<img'>

Interesting, it makes a greyscale image have a range from black to transparent instead of black to white. Setting the layer to multiply does almost the same thing, though produces a slightly lighter result.

For most cases I think I'd prefer using multiply since the two are so close and setting the layer to multiply is easier. (as is switching it back) Though I will note this, in case I ever find a need for a multiply like effect without using multiply. ( Can't think of one off the top of my head, but you never know. )
