Using Microsoft Paint

Using Microsoft Paint

Microsoft Paint is a simple paint program with a limited tool set that  creates bitmapped images in a single layer only. This is a short tutorial  to enforce some practice  with all tools.

 

The Tools

Here is the paint toolbar,  with the names of all the available tools:(moving downwards)

 

 

• Selection Tools - for regular and irregular areas - select an area of the image to do something to including copy, erase, flip, or modify in some way.

• Eraser tool - erases part  of the image (changes foreground color to background color)

• Bucket tool - fills in an enclosed part  of the image with the foreground/background color.

• Eyedropper  tool - chooses a color and turns  on the bucket (fill) tool. 

• Zoom tool - zoom in or out to see different magnifications  of the image.

• Pencil tool - draw free hand lines with a single line width

• Brush tool - like the pencil tool but with a variety  of brush strokes available.  This is more useful than  the pencil tool.

• Airbrush  tool - draws a loose pattern of dots to give a light fill effect. A limited number  of patterns are available.

• Text  tool - places text  on your image of various sizes and typefaces.

• Line tool - draws straight lines of various strokes (thickness).

• Curve tool - draws simple curves with up to 2 control points (besides the ends) of various strokes (thickness).

• Rectangle tool - draws square/rectangles with various fill characteristics.

• Polygon tool - draws polygons with various fill characteristics.

• Ellipse tool - draw ellipses/circles  with various fill characteristics.

• Rounded  Rectangle tool - just like the rectangle  tool but  draws rectangles/squares with rounded corners.

 

 

The Foreground and Background

 

 

 

While drawing with the pencil tool, the color that  the pencil draws with is called the foreground color. The background  color is the color that  the eraser tool ”paints”  with in order to erase any lines drawn with the foreground color.

The color palette  consists of 2 rows of colored boxes. Clicking any colored box with the left mouse sets the foreground color. Clicking any colored box with the right mouse will set the background  color. 

 

Making Mistakes and Experimenting

If you are going to try to add something that  you’re not sure will work, first use Save As to rename your file to another  version. For example if you are working on scape.bmp  then you may change this to scape1.bmp  and so on with later  versions.  This will allow you to go back to a previous file if your experiment doesn’t look as good as you had hoped.

You may Undo your last action by using the Control-Z key combination.  (Hold down the Control  key and press the Z key) You may undo actions up to 3 times but  no more. Going further  ”back” is only possible if you have an earlier version of your work, as mentioned  in the previous paragraph.

The Paint Assignment

These assignments  will demonstrate that  you are using all of the tools and options of

Windows Paint:

 

1. The Wild West (15 marks) You are assigned to design the storefronts  for a new Clint Eastwood  western.  You must have 3 storefronts  including a Saloon with curved swinging front doors, a General store and a Blacksmith’s shop in a single image. The first two buildings have two stories with rooms on the second floor and include a balcony on one. Some windows will have curtains  (i.e. arcs or parts  of an ellipse or circle).

Use the rectangle  tool to create building outlines.  You should use the select tool to copy windows, doors, and other shapes.  The ellipse tool (along with the eraser) or the circle tool can be used to create arcs. 

2. The Self  Portrait (15 marks) You are schizophrenic.  You commission a portrait of yourself to be painted  by your ”other”  self. It will be a picture  of your head only. You will copy and flip both your eye and your ear to create copies for the other side of your face. You will use the curve tool to create your nose and mouth.  Use the ellipse tool to create the outline of your head.  Custom  colours may be created  to give good flesh tones, eye colour, etc.

3. The Scape (15 marks) You will create a landscape or seascape (i.e. underwater) containing  at least 15 different elements such as plant and animal life, human activity,  and forces of nature  (i.e. weather,  etc.)  Again, try to make use of as many different tools as possible. Also don’t forget about  the select and copy function to create ”herds”  of animals, etc.  Try to create ”vibrant” colors if possible.

4. The ”Action” Choice (15 marks) You will create an image suggesting ”action”  of various sorts such as a skier going over a jump, or a race car going around  a corner or a sports action of some kind, etc.  The type of ”action”  is entirely up to you, but marks will be given for creative choices and demonstrated use of several different tools.
