Microsoft Paint has an collection of painting Tools that you can use for drawing shapes and applying color to areas of your image in various ways. User can. Microsoft Paint. Creating Diagrams - How To. 1. Intro: Part of the new survey process involves creating diagrams on the computer rather than drawing them. Paint Programs work by using PIXELS (little squares displayed on the screen). A cursor which has been assigned a particular color or pattern, moves across the.
The pixels just happen to be in the proper arrangement to appear to be text in some font; they cant be edited or moved as though a distinct object in the image. Line tool The straight line tool is fairly straightforward.
You can change the color and width of your lines using the toolbar options. All you have to do to draw a line is click on the image where you want one of the lines endpoints to be, and then drag over to where you want the other endpoint to be. Then release the button. But the lines can only be straight. As with many of the other tools in Paint, holding down the Shift key constrains the line tool to making horizontal, vertical, or 45degree angle diagonal lines.
Curve tool The curve tool is trickier to use than the line tool. It can be difficult to learn how to use, and equally tricky to explain.
Your best bet is to experiment with it, but be patient, because it may take some getting used to before you get very good at making curved lines that are the shape that you want. Like the straight line tool, the curve tool can make lines in various thicknesses and colors. Try experimenting with various techniques for making lines.
Try clicking and dragging to make one kind of line, or clicking and releasing two endpoints. Click a third point to determine the curve. The curve tool can be frustrating, especially for beginners. Just keep practicing! Paint provides many options for drawing various shapes. In the following sections, we will look at the various shape tools in Paint.
The rectangle tool draws three types of rectangles: outline, filled with outline, and filled without outline. The interior of the outline rectangle is transparent, whereas the filled types fill the rectangle with the background color.
To draw a rectangle, click on the rectangle tool; then click a point on the image where you want one corner to be, then drag diagonally and release the mouse where you want the opposite corner to be. To create a square shape, hold down the Shift key as you draw the shape.
The polygon tool is similar to the rectangle, but works a bit differently. To create a polygon, activate the polygon tool from the tool bar.
Then, click on the image wherever you want your first vertix to be. A vertex is like a corner. Draw the edges of the shape like you would use the straight line tool, then simply connect the last edge to the first vertix and the shape will finish.
You have to be pretty precise, though. On the Show or Hide part of this tab, you have the option of hiding the status bar. I wouldn't advise you to do that. The status bar can be useful. Gridlines are convenient if you want to align shapes accurately. If you like. Turn them on and see what you think. On the Display section, you can click for Full Screen View.

You can also get a Full Screen View by hitting F In either case, come back to a normal view by pressing the Esc key. Thumbnail is only available when you are zoomed in. It lets you see how changes you make are affecting your picture in normal view.
So far, I'm finding that the thumbnail cannot always show work on the far right or the bottom of the page. You can flick back and forth between the Home tab and the View tab as often as you like.
The Ribbon All the tools, the color palette, and most commands are grouped together in the ribbon. The exceptions are Save, Undo and Redo, which are shown at the left end of the title bar, in the Quick Access Toolbar.
If you choose to use a very small window, the ribbon will appear like this. Drop-down arrows below each item will give you access to everything in their menus. If, however, you use a very large window, you will have many more menu items on display.
There is also an option to minimise the ribbon.
If you choose this, the ribbon disappears entirely, but pops into view if you click on the Home tab. Only when a selection is active will the Cut and Copy icons show as being ready. Paste is always active, because you may wish to Paste from a picture on your computer. Say you've previously drawn and saved a small flower and now wish to add it to your present drawing. You'd click the down arrow under Paste, click Paste from and navigate to the saved picture, click its name and click Open.
You'd be returned to your work space and see the added picture inside a selection rectangle, ready for you to drag to its permanent position.
When you click the down arrow just below the dotted rectangle, or just below the word Image, a menu will offer you further choices. Before you can use the buttons on the right of this menu, you select the part of your drawing that you want to work with. Transparent selection At the bottom of the Select menu you'll see Transparent selection.
How can we help?
You'll want to use this often, so it's a good idea to add it to your Quick Access toolbar. To do this, right click on Transparent selection and then click on Add to Quick Access toolbar.
While that box has a tick in it, selections will be transparent. To make your selections opaque, just click the checkbox to remove the tick.Remember to use the Undo command if you make a mistake, by pressing Ctrl-Z.
The paint brush tool is similar to the pencil, but has more features.
To paint with the selected background color, right-click while you drag the pointer. Gradually, as the airbrush is left hovering over the same area while it is painting, it will fill up with color.
Painting with a selection Try this. But be careful; if you click outside of the boundary accidentally, which is pretty easy to do, the text box will deselect, and the text tool will think youre trying to draw a new text box, and your old text will be set in place.
