writing in the program paint on the cp ~ how??
 
ok i really really really need to know how to do this: how do you get the type something on a picture? like, say i wanted to use glitterbase which i do, then i want to have my name, hollistergirl475 on the pic. i am NOT using glitterfy because then it's not real gllitter, it's sparkle stuff.
anyway, when i go onto paint (in programs) there's this A button that stands for font. so i click on it and click a font (curlz MT) but then it doesn't type. it just shows the dotted box when you move the mouse. how do you get it tp type and get it on a pic? this is an exaple of what i mean: http://www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/...pic10239_1.gif <------ see how this person has the words on it? that's what i am trying to figure out!

*NOTE* ~ I AM NOT LOOKING FOR POSTS THAT SAY, OH I HAVE PHOTOSHOP OR WHATEVER SO I CAN'T HELP YOU. i NEED SOMEONE WITH THE PROGRAM PAINT!!!!!!

Well, images that glitter really what's called "animated GIFs". Those are images with several frames that play like a mini movie to create the illusion of movement. So you can't really type text with Paint directly on an animated GIF. You would have to extract all the frames first, put your text on each frame, then use an animated GIF program to put all the frames back together.

But there are many free places on the web that will create just that for you. Try to search with Google :)

well i just want, even without glitter, yea, actually NO glitter, just to get words on the pic by using paint.

If you don't need it to be animated, then you would just click the "A" in Paint and type your text in the box that appears on the canvas. You can movie the box around, change the font, color, etc.

By the way, make sure your font color is not white like the canvas. Maybe that's the reason why you couldn't see the text you typed when you first tried?

yea i tried that, but then when i try putting it over the pic it erases the some of the pic.

Oh, I see what you mean. Paint is a little weird in the way it works. This is what you need to do:

1. Load your image in Paint.

2. Click the "Image" menu and uncheck the "Draw Opaque" option.

3. Click the "A" and type your text on the picture.

The background of the text box should now be transparent when the "Draw Opaque" option is unchecked :)

ok so behind the words, the pic will appear. because what was happening, was, right behind the words, would be a white space and the pic would be erased in that spot.

but now, how do you change the color of the words?

Yes, exactly. The white box appears when the "Draw Opaque" option is checked :)

Oh, and you change the color of the text by selecting another color at the bottom of the Paint window.

Re: writing in the program paint on the cp ~ how??
