I read a tutorial in a manga drawing book saying about the same thing. Its difficult and rather unnescessary in my opinion. Your better off just manually cleaning everything up.

I thought flood fill was the paint bucket.

Yeah, it's paintbucket. That's a variation on a technique I often use to separate my lines out.

Yeah as far as I know flood fill is just a paint bucket.

And to me that seems like more work than you really need to do to get your line art ready.

How I do it is after I get all the lines nice and dark by adjusting the curves I just set the layer style to multiply and color underneath.
I was a ninja my kung-fu was strong.

Who was I kidding I was a 5 cent shinobi with three bullets in him and half his blood in the street.

This technique is nice if you actually want to manipulate the lines themselves, though, like put a blend over them to change their colour.
