I would like to make a silhouette from a picture, make the object black and the background white. The magic wand seems to be the perfect tool for this, but I can not color the selected part black. When I choose "color tint" black, it is like a black-and-white picture, not just pitchblack.
How can I do this?
Thanks in advance for your reply.

For silhouettes, I usually use Adjust -> MonoChrome ...

You can cut out the parts of the picture you want white.. then monochrome would do the rest..

I agree that it could be easier..

Thanks, but that is what I don't want because you can always see that it is cut out by hand. The program can select the edges very well, why not color black the inside?
