Learning how to use MS Paint!

Hi guys! First, I wanna welcome my new "followers"! I logged on one day and my little 3 had become my little 5! It's not much but I'm happy to see that ppl are reading and liking!! (I'm soo geeked!)

Okay, so I usually edit my photos (putting my inch markers and water marking) through Picnik which is a free photo-editing site. They have tons of cool effects and you can upload your pictures straight to Photobucket, Facebook, Myspace, your computer, or wherever else you want to upload them to.

Well one day, the internet in my house was being sketchy (it's notoriously unreliable, I think because there are 7... yes S-E-V-E-N computers in my house... and there's only five people living here... shame shame). So I decided to try to use Paint (yep, the free paint that comes on everybody's computer with Windows) to add my lines and watermarks and what not.

Then I thought "I wonder if I can make side-by-side comparison pictures on here..."

Turns out, you can!

Here's my step by step "tutorial" (I actually typed this out for one of the ladies on BHM but I thought I'd share it with you guys too...)

1.) Open up the picture through paint. (So open up paint, then under file hit "open" and find the first picture on your computer and open it.)

2.) Find your second picture, but this time you're going to copy and paste that one into the paint project you have open with the first picture.

3.) Adjust the pictures so that the scale is the same... you won't be able to edit the first picture so you'll have to adjust the second picture to match the scale of the first one. (on my picture, you see the two thick, red lines? Those are just to make sure that the pictures are scaled the same... so the top of my head and the crease of my left armpit are on the same level... that means they match as close as possible... especially since they were taken in two different locations.)

4.) Add any lines to help you compare the two pictures (like I added the line to show how much... or little in my case... my hair has grown.)

5.) Save it and you're done...
I hope this helps someone out there!!

Stay tuned for my next post when I show my comparison between 12/31/09 and now...!
