Ooh, nice to know. Thanks for sharing these!

Now will all these work on the Windows 7 Paint, too?

I've got no idea actually. You could give it a try and see what happens. I haven't used MS Paint in years now so I'm extremely rusty. (:

I do it like this (yes, I want to brag):

Old Paint(I had this one XP):

Two colours on opposite sides of a diagonal line(for example) > Image > Stretch option > Scew > 1% > OK

and you've got a nice effect.

New Paint(Windows 2010):

Two colours on opposite sides of a diagonal line(for example) > Scale > keep same height, but change width to 1 instead of hundred > do that again > now scale up until you've got a nice effect.

So yeah, I kind of know. xD But not in a very efficient way. Haven't used Paint for anything big in a while.

Maybe I'll do another tutorial one day. : )

What about the "3D-Trick"? You know... um, lighter colour for outline really thin outline, darker shade of that colour on the inside, select it put transparency on and drag...and you get 3D. Did you know the 3D trick?

Now I do xD

I don't work with Paint that much, and now it is a couple of years ago. But it's good to always learn new things.

You mean the primary and secondary boxes' colour? For the primary colour, pick a colour by right clicking on it. For the secondary colour, pick a colour by left clicking on it :]

I had to open Paint to know what we were talking about xD Anyway, well, you draw something, and then you use the seletion tool. When you choose the selection tool, two new images will appear underneath your toolbar. You choose the second one to make the image transparent :] By choosing the transparent one you won't take the bavkground with you when you draw the picture around, instead you'll only move around what you've drawn :]
