Microsoft Paint is also known as MS Paint. It is a basic graphics drawing program that has been an indispensable part of all versions of the Microsoft Windows operating system. MSP provides easy ways for creating different types of graphics with different tools. The tools include brushes, shape generators, pens, and erasers. Many users of Windows might also be unaware of its presence, considering the popularity of web-based graphics creation tools. So, you need to know exactly from where to access MS Paint.
The simplicity of MS Paint is the foremost reason for its popularity among users for graphic editing. Let us take note of the different tools that you can get with MS Paint for creating and editing graphics. The foremost instrument which you can note in MS Paint refers to the drawing tools. The different icons in the “Tool Box” indicate the different artistic tools such as brushes, erasers, and freehand drawing. You can also find other tools in the “Tool Box” for creating shapes such as squares, rectangles, and circles.
Interestingly, the “Fill with Color” tool can help you color a particular section of a graphic in a particular color. As a result, you don’t have to take the trouble of coloring the section manually. You can also use the “Tool Box” for adding text to images on MS Paint. Users could also find tools for zooming in and out of a particular image alongside tools for modifying the whole image. For example, you have the “Flip and Rotate” option for turning the image in the desired direction. Most important of all, MS Paint provides the flexibility of sharing an open file through email.
When we got the first computer on our hands, as a kid, we were intrigued with MS paint. It was the one application that made us aware that digitally we could unleash our creativity. All of us, especially the 90s kids were a bit disheartened when we learned that Microsoft will stop supporting MS paint very soon, in order to promote Paint 3D, that comes with windows 10. Although Paint is still available in Windows, eventually Microsoft plans to remove it permanently and only keep it as a Windows store product for users who still wants to use MS Paint.
