The coloring book is really easy and fun to use. Here are a few helpful tips...
The Mozilla Firefox browser seems to work without any adjustments. The Google Chrome browser might need an adjustment to make sure the coloring book page fits in the browser window. If this is a problem, click on the image of three small parallel lines in the upper right corner and adjust the Zoom tool for the proper fit. If the Print icon in the lower right corner doesn't work try a right click on the image and choose print.
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 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.
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.|
|You can also print your finished coloring page, by clicking the print button. This is a great way to show off your artwork, or to turn it into a fun personalised invitation or greeting card.|
Besides Saving and Printing, there's lots of other ways to share your finished artwork, on Facebook, in the Picture Gallery, or enter in our regular Coloring Contests!
|Click the Facebook button to share your colored in picture with friends and family on Facebook.|
|Sometimes you make a mistake and want to go back. You can click the undo button to undo your 5 most recent changes.|
|You can redo the changes by clicking the redo button.|
|You can change the volume of sounds by moving the sound effect volume slider.|
|You can zoom in and out using the zoom slider.|
