Possible to remove feather?

I have been trying to use the pencil and the paint bucket to draw and fill in colors however every time i use them they are feathered and go out side of my selection and dont fill completely. I have tried looking to see how to turn off feather completely, I dont want this option on at all. I cant find it. I found a feather section but wont let me set it to 0 makes me go no lower than 0.2. Can someone tell me how to get rid of this, its driving me insane.. thanks!

you have to set your selection tool (Marquee) feather to 0 before you start your selection, that is located on the options tool bar once you have selected Marquee tool. set it to 0 before you select an area.

then make sure that your brush/pencil tool master diameter is 0

Maybe thats where im running into problems, im using the magic wand to select the area, and then im doing a select modify border. I also dont see a feather option for the magic wand but the selection tool is set at 0 even tho im not using it.

Ill see if i can find my photobucket account, but in the mean time all i did was take color black and use the text tool and wrote out some text, then took the magic wand selected the text to get the selection, created a new layer and hid the text layer, did selection modify border, and tried to fill in that new selection with black but it keeps coming back feathered.. I used to never have this problem but dont know if its this ver of photoshop or the way i have my settings. BTW Thanks for the help so far...

- Start Photoshop and make sure your Tool Options menu bar is visible (Select Window > Options if it is not)

- Click the down arrow next to the tool icon (first one on the Tool Options bar) to see the drop down list box.

- Click the small Right arrow button at the top righthand corner of the window that opens up and click Reset All Tools in the popup menu.

- Click Ok in the warning dialog box to reset all tools to their defaults.

Good Luck!

Unfortunitly that didnt work. It is still feathering when I use the paint bucket to fill in the bordered selection.

- That certainly helps

- What you need to do to get the crisp outline that you are looking for is to use the Edit > Stroke option on your selection

- Just set the number of pixels (5 should be fine) for the stroke thickness, opacity as 100% and Mode as Normal in the Stroke Options dialog box that opens up and click the colour swatch to change the stroke colour.

- Click Ok to apply the stroke.

Good Luck!

That didnt work either :( I must have a screwed up install of photoshop or something..

Ive never had a problem with photoshop doing this before (not this install but in the past)

- The graphic you have posted looks like you have applied the stroke after using the Modify > Border command.

- Simply apply Edit > Stroke to the outline without using Modify > Border first (will work on any selection.

Good Luck!
