Hi Paint users (:
Most of you have Paint already downloaded, so you can just open up Paint and you're ready! : D
This is a Paint Guide Pack for Microsoft 7 users. Might work on older versions, but I find Microsoft 7's Paint much better and easier.
Okay, well. Let's go on with it c;

Before we start- Paint currently doesn't have a tool to make your image transparent.
Annnd, This guide has pictures! For every step. Good, right? C: I find guides with pictures easy.

Contents}
The Tools{
1. Resizing
2. Selecting
3. Pasting from your picture album
4. Colors
5. Brushes/Sizes
6. Full screen }

2. Bordered Avatars
3. Textured Avatars

Avatars!

Confession Avatars
(You basically know everything so less pics )
1. Open up Paint and your desired picture.
2. Click on your confession bubble's color and click on the (commonly used) paintbush. (just click on the paintbrush sign)
3. Make the brush size bigger, and color it in. (You can have the brush size bigger from the first step)
4. Type in a text.
(You can't rotate.)
If you type a new text, and it goes back to your text before, type a text in the corner and move it to where you want it to be.
Your result should be something like this:
Click the image to open in full size.

Bordered Avatars
1. First, expand the white part. Then Paste your image. Move it around so around it, the white parts is about the size of the border.
2. Make the white part smaller, matching the l+w of the border's corners.
3. The image isn't 100x100 now. It's a little bigger. If you want it to be EXACTLY 100x100 without it being squished and all that, follow these instructions..

1. Copy the BIGGER version of your image.
2. Paste your image. Do the UNDO move. Now you see the size of your image. Expand the white part and paste the image now. Move it around so around it, the white parts is about the size of the border.
3. Make the white part smaller, matching the l+w of the border's corners.
4. Now, you can resize it.

First way result- Click the image to open in full size.
