Recolouring an outline

How can it be done? I have an image with the main layer with the outline already done. I have it in multiple so I could colour separate layers. Now I want to colour the outline because it would make it look a little nicer.How is that done in photoshop?

Super easy way:

File>define brush preset

You now have a stamp of your image. Black is the color you choose. White is transparent.

Alternately, use the 'color select' tool.

Thing was I once managed what I was looking for with clipping masks but it was hit and miss. Sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn't.

I have never messed with that stuff.

Almost every time I see a question here the answers are incredibly complicated.

Defining it as a brush preset is the fastest and easiest way to do it. You can also change the size easily.

Lock transparency in the layer window will help you with that. Simply click it and paint away. Another variation is selecting the lines and then creating a new layer and painting on that.

Ctrl+A, you should see the entire picture selected. Go into edit and select 'Define Brush Preset'. This will turn the outline into a brush. Create a new layer and slap down the new 'brush' you created, which is your outline. It will float on top all the other layers so the lines remain true. Then you just carefully color, or you can be like me, super sloppy and erase the mess later :) Ahhh my old days of coloring in line art are coming back to me now and quite vividly. Have fun!
