How to Make Avatars' and Signatures' Using PAINT
Hello everyone, I thought it would be nice for members without pro software on they're computers to still be able to make great avatars and signatures for themselves, or others.
So, bare with me through this, the pictures may not be as instructional as you'd like it.
Alright, today we're going to make a simple signature of Webkinz.
Here, you see a red arrow pointing to the bottom of the workspace. Drag the Eagle (image) down so only the top of the image is showing.
Fliping/Rotating the Image
In order to get more images on the graphic, it helps to flip some of them.
Find the 'Image' Button at the top of your Paint screen. The fliping button is the first one. Click that, and it will bring you to the following two pictures:
Now you must turn the image to the wanted side, and then move it to it's place. Congrats! You've just rotated your image!
To add text to your image, simply find your tool bar, and click the "A" ** You may select your text font, size, color etc. And then if you want to move the text box, mouse the dashed lines and it should move.
**: If your text tool bar does not show up, click the 'Tools' button, and find your Text Tool Bar.
NOTE: If you wish for the text to go over the image, and not make a big box, make sure you swich to the lower one:
To finish off our graphic, adding some background colors can brighten it up. Notice how the white around the WW Wolf is different. This is because the Wolf Picture is different from the rest. To remove the white, find the 'View' Button, and hit 'Zoom In' then you use your paint brush to color out the white.
Some other Av/Sigs I've made using PAINT
I hope this helped some of you who want to make your very own avatars and signatures. If you need anymore help with the program, or anything else, feel free to post.
