2.4. Basic Effects using the Toolbox


  1. Create a new image by selecting: <Toolbox> -> File -> "New..." and filling the dialog.
  2. Draw with the pencil, the paintbrush, and the pattern painter.
  3. Create a Text caption by pressing the "T" tool. (notice that it needs to be anchored by pressing Ctrl+H)
  4. You'll probably want to cancel the text's anti-aliasing. Do that by double-clicking the "T" icon.
