Hi! I just got Artrage free with a graphics tablet so that I can try and re-do some greetings cards I had previously completed in Microsoft Paint. In MS Paint they were very pixelated, which is why i need to re-do them, but the advantage was that (as i'm not particularly good at free-hand drawing) you can zoom in and just fill in the blocks until you get it right. I've started trying to get vaguely competent with Artrage but am having trouble in the following areas:
- You can't "fill" an area - is there a way to do this that i'm just missing?
- I can't find any easy way to insert text.
I'm just wondering if there are any quick ways around the above problems without having to spend a lot of time trying to actually get good at drawing!! Or perhaps Artrage is a bit advanced for my needs - in which case does anyone know of anything similar to MS Paint but with a non-pixelated outcome?
- I'm finding drawing straight lines quite awkward (in paint you just click and drag)
Thanks for your help in advance,
