Draw

A draw program is similar to a paint program in that you are creating artwork of some sort, but a draw program works with hard-edged "objects" instead of with paintbrushes and airbrushes. In a paint program, once you use a brush to paint a color, that's the size and the color it is unless you paint directly over it, just as if you painted it on a wall at home. In a draw program, however, after you draw a shape you can change your mind a million times and replace the color or pattern inside the shape, replace the thickness and color of the border surrounding the shape, and even re-form the shape. You can put shapes in front or in back of each other, and then change the order of the various layers. Rather than painting on a wall, a draw program is more like cutting shapes out of paper and layering them one on top of another.

You can also use text in a draw program and it looks just as good as if you did it in a word processor, plus you can edit (change) it later, just like you can in a word processor. (You can use text in the paint program, but it doesn't look very good when you print it, and the only way to change the text is to erase it and type over.)
