Hidden deep within our staff and public Internet computers is a little program called Paint.

It’s great for patrons looking to make small changes to their photos before uploading them to Facebook or using them as a social media avatar.

Staff can also use it to edit picture for use in flyers and presentations. See how I used drawing to highlight important information in the above photos? I find it much easier to work with than Word.

You can even do freehand drawing, though I don’t recommend it:


If a patron wants more advanced drawing and photo options while using the Internet, I recommend the free webapp . Photo Editor by Aviary (iOS, Android) and Brushes 3 (iOS) are good free mobile apps.
