If you're like me, you suck at Photo Shop, and of course you can't possibly do anything in Blender or Maya or Collada or anything like that.
For the day-to-day needs of screenshots or blogging cropped pictures or putting text or arrows on pictures, you rely on Paint, which comes on Windows as a default program.
Paint has many incredible frustrations -- like the way it stacks up all your cut-outs until you get rid of them and answer whether you wanted to save them or not.
But the most incredible frustration is when they change this very simple interface for no good reason.
I hate it when they move my cheese. My rote learning of these things is a fragile connection anyway; changing the UI just baffles me.
So if you're like me, when Paint 4.03 came out, you were at a total loss.
You can't find Colors.
So you start looking.
No, it's not under Image where it used to be. Where the hell is it?!
No, it's not under Tools, either. That's really where it should be. It *is* a tool. Why is it that the paintbucket is a tool, and the dropper is a tool, but Colors isn't??? Makes no sense.
You will look in vain for it everywhere, and of course Invert Colors -- which is on the menu and findable isn't it, and Colors is nowhere to be found. Frustrating!
You are now going to stare at the screen for a long time. You're going to go back look AGAIN at all the top pull-down menus, even though YOU KNOW it's not there. AND AGAIN. Because it USED to be there. Dogs find it hard to learn new tricks. You look under TOOLS -- nope.
Finally, you will notice -- after a few minutes? A few hours? Never? -- for me it literally took multiple days of looking and giving up.
Yes, it's up in the upper right hand corner where you never would think to look, where you never look, where nothing like that EVER is, except maybe (now, because they moved that, too), "select/highlight" text and FIND in Word.
So that's why I made this post. Tips welcome!
