Art Lessons with Jakey, Part 2 - Editing

  Jakey, Director of Blogville's Department of Artistic Services here, with the next installment of our PiZap tutorial!
Before we start, I want to thank everyone for all their comments on last week's tutorial!! Mama and I just love seeing all of your creations and are having so much fun helping Blogville Citizens explore their artistic sides!! 

Today we are going to explore the editing part of PiZap!!

When we last left Bilbo, he was standing next to the ducks in the mud! If you missed our tutorial on how to cut Bilbo out of the living room and put him in the mud you can click HERE to go to last week's tutorial :-).

This week we are going to splash Bilbo with some mud, put some (much needed) glasses on him and give him some words!

 Let's get started by going back to PiZap.com and press that big green "START" button.

 This time, we are going to click "Edit" 
(since we are "editing" the picture of Bilbo)

 Our pictures are on our computer, so we clicked

We opened the picture of Bilbo in the mud that we saved last week.

 In order to get him a bit "muddy" we are going to splash him with a bit of red paint. 
We picked the "paint" button.

 Then we made sure the paintbrush button was chosen and changed the color by clicking the square by the brown arrow.

 Once we found the right color, we "painted" Bilbo with 
"mud" (and boy was that fun!!)!

Now, since Bilbo has been complaining about not being able to see well lately, we fitted him with some glasses!  We clicked on the "Stickers" icon (it's the one that looks like a heart).
We found the "glasses" category on the right, about halfway down.

Since Bilbo likes "Professor" type accessories, we chose some wire rimmed glasses. We clicked on them, moved the over Bilbo's eyes and sized them to his face by clicking and dragging the gray dots.

He kinda looks like Harry Potter, doesn't he??
 Now let's give Bilbo some words!! 
We do this by clicking the Text button (the letter T at the top)

Next,  we clicked a text bubble on the side. We chose a "thought bubble". 
After that, we clicked in the middle of the text bubble to type the text, easy peasy!

 Finally we changed the size of the bubble and moved it out of Bilbo's face.
We clicked outside the actual text box.  See the dots all around the text bubble? We clicked and dragged these dots to make our bubble just a bit bigger. 
 We clicked outside the actual text bubble (when the dots are showing) and dragged the bubble out of Bilbo's face and to the side.  
 Once we got the text box where we wanted it and the size we wanted we clicked on the check.

 Now all that is left is to make sure it is saved where Mama can remember it and.....

Tada!!! Bilbo has mud on him.... and he won't even have to take a bath to get clean!!

Stay tuned next week when we play with the collage part of PiZap!!

We will be saving all our photo classes to our "Artistic Tutorials" page for easy reference
