Much of what we have learned in using Paint can be usefully applied to learning to use other, more sophisticated graphics programs. </li></ul><ul><li>While older versions of MS Paint were capable of working only with the .bmp file format, Paint currently handles a  variety of image formats, including of the commonly used formats such as JPEG and GIF.  This makes Paint appreciably more flexible for working with images and converting from one file type to another. </li></ul><ul><li>If all you need is a very basic image editor, Paint is a pretty good choice.  Its greatest feature, other than its simplicity, is the fact that Paint is distributed freely with the Microsoft Windows operating system.  </li></ul><ul><li>Now that you are familiar with paint, you can try making your images or art work. </li></ul><ul><li>Enjoy! </li></ul>Copyright © 2009 www.digiartport.net
