[font=tahoma][size=1]Many people have been asking me how do I make my backgrounds? It's something so simple, so easy, that anyone could do it. Here's a tutorial to show you how to do the easiest and most common backgrounds on PAINT. Nothing hard. :happy:


Striped background

------

1) Open up paint. Make sure it's all blank.
2) Make sure the image will be 10 by 10 pixels. (Image>>Attributes>>width: 10>>Height: 10>>Unit: Pixels>>Colors: Color.)
3) Click the magnify glass and zoom into it.
4) Click on the paint bucket then click on the color you want the background to be on the color boxes. [Like in my skin, mine was grey]
5) Fill the box in with that color. Make sure it's just one color. ;]
6) Then use your mouse and click the color you want the stripe to be.
7) Click the diagonal line. User posted image
8) If you're not zoomed in, then zoom in now.
9) Draw a diagonal line from one corner to the other. It doesn't matter which way, it just depends on which way you want your lines facing. If you can't get it straight, then hold shift while doing this.

10) You're finished! Unzoom now. It should look something like this;

You now put it as your background. Make sure it's repeated in all directions!
