How to draw in paint?
The computer is not only for work, butalso for creativity. With it, you can also create masterpieces using only the mouse. Alternatively, you can adjust a bit of the existing drawing. Of course, for more serious work there are special graphic editors - Photosop, CorelDRAW and others. But first of all you will need the usual standard program paint. In order to understand how to draw in paint, how to use a variety of tools and what can come of it, you just need to try.
Where is paint
Finding the program is very simple. Go to the Start menu, go to the Programs section, find the "Standard" folder and see the paint - a nice icon with a brush and paints.
I must say that the internal featuresprograms in Windows XP and Windows 7 are significantly different. Although, in principle, the only difference is that the control panel in Windows 7 moved up, as in all other Windows programs.
Than you can draw in paint
The choice of tools is great enough. From the very beginning, your instrument is a pencil. If you clamp the left mouse button and arbitrarily lead it, you'll get a clumsy black spangle. With a pencil, you can draw anything. The quality of the drawing, however, depends on your ability to control the mouse.
You can choose any color, as well as otherstools - brushes, aerosol. In Windows 7 there is also a pen and different brushes - oil, watercolor, pastel, a texture pencil. If you want, if you gain enough experience, you can draw real pictures.
If you want to achieve perfect shapes, paintthere are special blanks: rectangles, ellipses, triangles ... Even hearts and arrows. To draw a shape, select it in the control panel, move the mouse to the place of the canvas where you want it to be drawn and hold down the left mouse button, pulling it to the side. You can change the drawn shape - stretch, change the color, while it is highlighted with a dotted line. To make the shape perfectly smooth, hold Shift while drawing.
Another useful tool is filling. With it, you can paint a large area with one color in one click. But be careful: if somewhere there is a "hole" (a gap in the contour of the figure), the entire fill will "flow" into the neighboring area. But if this happened - do not be scared, you can always undo the last action with the Ctrl + Z keys.
How to save a drawing
Save the fruits of your creativity throughmenu File, then "Save As." In the dialog box that opens, you can not only choose where to save the file, it also determines its format. The standard format for the paint program is .bmp. But most Internet resources do not support it, so you can save it in one of the usual formats: .jpeg, .jpg or .gif.
Advanced level: paint.NET
But the possibilities of paint, alas, are limited. For example, you can not process any photo there. But there is an improved version of the editor - paint.NET, which includes some useful functions of serious editors and easy management of paint.
To understand how to draw in paint net, you need to try paint first. And then - everything is simple, only some new options.
Good luck in your work!
