I can't figure out how to do something simple in Photoshop. I'm trying to fill a color within a shape. In MS Paint, it's as easy as taking the fill tool, choosing a color, then click in the space you want to fill. How do I do this in Photoshop?

    the paint bucket tool is under the gradient tool, or hit Shift+G twice to get it
    you can fill any layer object which is rasterized
    if its a shape with vector mask, then you can double click on the color thumbnail in the layer pelette, and can change the color from here.
