    Thomas,

    I wasn't able to te your issue. I chose red and the selection became red when I did the Edit
    / Fill command. I suspect you might have to trash your preferences. Hold and press SHIFT-ALT-CTRL
    keys immediately after having double-clicked on the Elements icon. Then answer Yes.

    The possibility is that you have the 'invert' layer selected when using the color picker which will only give you greyscale color. Use the color picker with the original layer selected.

    Thomas,

    Choose a color from the Swatch palette or use the eyedropper to sample a color from your image. Color appears as foremost square at bottom of Tool Box. If modification of color is needed, click on that square and adjust in the box which pops up. OK it.

    Make your marquee, Select>Invert
    Create a new blank layer on top of stack (selection lines still showing)
    hit Alt/Backspace keys (color will fill in on new layer above image)

    * in RGB mode
