As you use Windows 7, you will sooner or later have to work with pictures: these could be digital photos you have taken, clipart images you are using inside a Microsoft Word document, or graphic files you have downloaded online (like custom desktop wallpapers, for example). In this series of Windows 7 tutorials, you will learn how to make the best of "MS Paint", the free image editor that ships with Windows 7 (and not as basic as you may think - in fact, Paint was completely upgraded, not just cosmetically, for the first time in a long time).

This won't be a technical series of tutorials, and we'll stick to the most popular uses of image manipulation like resizing, rotating, removing red eyes from a digital picture, etc.
