    I have a large area of a single color I need to remove from an image.

    Is it possible to use the Paint Bucket tool as an eraser type tool?  Can I click on an area of a particular color and the color is simply removed and no color is substituted?

    It's easy to use the Magic Wand (color selection tool), with Alpha Channel enabled.

     
  • That's right, you can just press the delete key after you select it with the Wand tool and it will erase the content in the layer.
