Fill and Merge are tools that you can find in Photoshop. These tools allow users to fill a layer with a certain color or pattern, all the while being able to choose the opacity of the color. Fill will create a new area on your image by spreading out from that point, while merge will cover the entire layer with the selected colors or pattern that you have chosen.
