Paint is a good program to use because * I have a lot of freedom within this program * Can create my own lines and shapes and copy and paste parts easily * Can insert text boxes Microsoft paint also has many other good points but I still think I that this program isn't the most ideal because: * I don't now how to make it fit the whole page * Cant use word art, would have to copy and paste it There are also more problems with it and they wouldn't really influence my decision as I think that using paint is already to tedious from the above two problems so it isn't the most desirable solution. ...read more.
