Lesson 12 - Create an image
If you can't find a logo or banner that you like, or simply want to have a unique design, it is really easy to create your own image. The same instructions apply if you wish to create your own Beauty Contest entry, picture for the Art Gallery or any other image. If you are using a computer with Windows on it, you will already have a drawing program called Paint installed. You can open it by clicking on the Start button, then going --> Programs --> Acessories --> Paint. Paint won't give you all the effects that a program like Adobe Photoshop will, but it is easy to use and most computers come with it.
Choose the size of your picture
The tools are pretty obvious: the pencil draws, the paint bucket fills in shapes with colour, the circle tool draws a circle, etc. You can change colours by clicking on the colours at the bottom of the window. If you make a mistake, use the eraser or press the Control and Z buttons to undo a stroke. If you get stuck, click on 'HELP' in the Paint program, you can then search the help files until you find the answer to your question.
