The Paint feature within Clicker 6 is highly versatile and offers fun ways for users to illustrate their ideas.
Did you know you can paint over other pictures?
Once you’ve added a picture to your Document, you can paint over it! This is especially fun to do with photos taken with a webcam.
To do this: click the picture to select it, click the Picture icon in the Document Toolbar, and then click the Paint icon.
Did you know you can choose which tools, stamps, and colors appear?
It’s possible to create a custom Paint activity that contains only the tools, stamps, and colors that you specify. This is useful to keep the activity focused and remove potential distractions.
To create a custom Paint activity:
- Create or open a Clicker Set.
- In Edit Mode, add a cell to a grid/page.
- With the cell selected, switch to the Open tab in the top toolbar.
- Click Choose and choose Open Paint.
- Click More Options on the right.
- Click the Tools or Colors tab.
Click the tools/color palettes along the top to enable/disable them.
Each enabled tool/color palette has a corresponding tab below. Items in the left list will be hidden; items in the right list will be shown. To move an item from one list to another, click the item, and then click an arrow button. The tool’s default settings can be changed on the right.
Did you know you can save a painting?
You may wish to save your painting as a picture file, so it can be used in other programs and sent to other people. To do this: when the Paint window is visible, open the Clicker Set menu in the Clicker 6 window behind it and choose Save Picture As. Type a name, choose the picture file type, and then click Save.
