Paint

A paint program lets you "paint" right on the screen. You get to choose from a variety of tools, such as various paintbrushes, pens, a pencil, airbrush, and others. You choose the colors or patterns to paint with and the thickness of the stroke or the style of brush. You can even "pour" paint right from the "can" into a shape, and erase your mistakes. It's too much fun.

Use a paint program to decorate holiday cards, make birthday invitations, entertain your grandchildren, illustrate a story, or anything you would use a paintbrush for in the first place. Don't worry if you don't consider yourself an "artist"—you'll be amazed at what you can do on a computer screen when you have the power to revise on a whim. See Chapter 7 for an unintimidating exercise in using a paint program. Also check out the brief information on Kid Pix on page 74 (not everyone with an iMac has a CD with Kid Pix).
