Photoshop CS help

I have a copy of Photoshop CS. I ink my sketches with the Pen Tool. When I select areas to color, there is an anoying white space between my selection and the "ink". I was reading Jeph's newest tutorial and was wondering how, exactly, he gets Photoshop to expand all of his selections by 2 pixels? Is it even possible in CS, or is it a CS2 thing? That white space has been one of my biggest problems while coloring my drawings. I only have a really crappy mouse to draw with and saving myself the monotony of rubbing all of that white space away after filling my selections would just rock until I purchase a tablet.

Thanks in advance!

My PS6 has that feature. Tried looking in the "Selection" menu (if there is one...cant look right now)? Look for "expand" or something like that....

torg should be right on the money, even for CS. Also, make sure you're putting your colors on a different layer than your inks, and that your paintbucket is set so it is recognizes only the current layer, not all layers (assuming you're using the paintbucket).

Wow. I really cannot believe I haven't noticed that there... Yeah, it's under the "Select" menu in the group called "Modify." Hey, thanks for the help!

Here's what I do - it is long winded but hey.

do my inking with the brush tool. Gives you lovely smooth lines.

Then colour underneath using the pencil tool - draw round the edges and then fill it if I want to. I much prefer doing it that way.

Thats kind of what I used to do. I should have mentioned that I do use the brush option when drawing in my lines. It works okay, for the most part. The physical tools I have are pretty bad, so anything to speed up my coloring process is good. Until I get a tablet, that is.
