Some of the features of Paint and its tasks in Windows® 7
How does Paint function in Windows 7? What is the need of Paint?
Paint is one of the main features included in all Windows operating systems. This feature is also known as MS Paint or Microsoft Paint. MS Paint opens and saves files as bitmap, jpeg, gif formats. The program can be in color mode or two colors black and white. Grayscale mode is not included in MS Paint. Due to the simplicity of this application, this became one of the most commonly used applications in the system.
Paint can be used for applications such as to create cool greeting cards. In Windows 7, Paint includes many features such as Ribbon. It also features some types of artistic brushes to simplify the user’s tasks. This offers a more realistic result to the user and this allows the user to improve productivity. The artistic brush gives an illusion that the paint brush has run out of Paint. This also includes anti-aliased shapes. Text can now be pasted into text boxes that don't have enough room to display the text. The text box feature has also improved in Windows 7. This version of Paint avoids all the drawbacks of the previous versions.
The following points are the important features of Paint in Windows 7:
- Use of Ribbon
- Digital brushes
- Touch ready
Use of ribbon
Paint in Windows 7 includes the feature called Ribbon. Ribbon is an interface where a set of toolbars are located on tabs in a specific tab bar. Ribbon is a background interface that offers functionality based on the context the user is working in. The Ribbon GUI offers the user interface of an application with a large toolbar packed with graphical representations of control elements which are combined by different functionality. Ribbon can also contain tabs to represent different sets of control elements eliminating the need for a lot of different icon based tool bars.
The new realistic digital "brushes" will bring your pictures to life in shades of watercolors, crayon and calligraphy. This feature allows the user to draw the picture in a different way which makes the picture real.
The touch ready feature is included in this version. Using this, you can paint using your fingers. This will help you to save time by selecting the tools from the tool box. This feature can be considered as an advanced feature in Windows Paint.
