Coloring Book Help
The coloring book is really easy and fun to use. Here are a few helpful tips...
Choosing a Coloring Page
Find a coloring page you like using the Books, Pages, and Search menu buttons.
Books shows all of the free coloring books. Click on the book cover to open it up and see all of the coloring pages.
Pages shows a random selection of coloring pages. This is a fun way to discover new coloring pages.
Search lets you find coloring pages using key words. You can search in all coloring pages, or search in a specific category.
You can color in with the paint brush, the magic brush or the paint bucket.
|The paint brush lets you paint wherever you want using the current color and brush size. Just hold down the mouse and move the paint brush around to color in.|
|The magic brush is like the paint brush, but magically stays inside the lines.|
|You change the brush size using the size slider. Drag to the left for a smaller brush and to the right for a larger one.|
|The paint bucket will fill the area you click with the selected color.|
|The text tool lets you type text onto your coloring page. This is a fun way to add a message to your picture. You can choose the color of the text from the color palette.|
|You change the text size using the text size slider, and choose different text styles from the drop down.|
|The wash tool cleans the area that you click (back to white).|
|Use the palette on the left to choose a paint color for the brush, magic brush, paint bucket, and text tool.|
|You can also choose the special random paint which will change the paint color every time you use a brush or the bucket, or type another letter in the text tool.|
|If you want to choose a color not on the palette, just click the color selector and choose exactly the color you need.|
Color Picker: Sometimes you want to use a color you've already painted with. You can grab a color from the coloring page by holding down the [Ctrl] key. The tool changes temporarily to a dropper which can suck up the color you want.
Save and Print
Once you've finished with coloring you can easily save your colored picture, or you can print it out.
|When you've finished your coloring page you can click the save button to save a copy of the colored in picture.|
