RJPARE Posted March 25, 2009 Share Posted March 25, 2009 I have read thru the FAQ... I have tried playing with the program itself. many of the features which are far more advance than MS PAINT utterly baffle me. I have tried a few of the tutorials, but to be honest I found them far too complicated. MS PAINT is my only editing / graphics software prior experience. By any chance could someone direct me to a step by step tutorial on using this software, so that I may increase my knowledge/skills in this area? The interactive Guide... I tried it... didn't seem to explain anything... just identified stuff. Even simple things like the fact that the rectangle shape tool can be create 1 of 3 types [empty framed, filled, filled frame] in MS PAINT this is an easy visual menu that is directly below the tool when you select... here I cannot figure out how to change between. Pasteing... in MS PAINT I have 2 options.. paste over or paste where white is transparent [very useful]... I cannot see this option anywhere here. layers -- I am a complete newbie... cannot rely understand what appears to be a redundant step... either make a change or don't... but the tutorials I have tried so far seem to assume a level of experience in photo editing that I do not yet have. To sum up. Is there an absolute, step by step guide on how to use this program for those completely new? I apologize in adavance if I am in violation of forum rules - there seemed an awful lot of them.. and I did try to go thru some of the existing tutorials... but there are so many... Just hoping someone can point me to the very first "rung in the ladder" so to speak. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
