Just an additional tip: When you have selected the area you want to keep, just click Crop and the MsPaint will discard the rest, only keeping the selected area. This way you don't need to open a new document to paste the selection.

WOW, that was the tip I've been after for a long time.

Now for one more question.
Supposed I wanted to join two different photo subjects into on photo?
IE: put a Dog and Cat's heads together in front of a Window etc?

Instead of saving the cropped selection you can click COPY, then open the second image and select PASTE, but I personally prefer the method described above as if I later notice the cropped and copied image needs to be further edited before pasted into the new image, I can simply open it for edit and save again.

Oh boy you did a good'un. I'll not show this to my wife.
I'll give it a try. I'm sorta foggy with long series of Technical chores.

Sorry, didn't work for me. I tried to put two halves of a boat together.
A right and left.
I 'selected' the left. Saved it as 14 1.
Then did the other half, calling it 14 2.
I cropped both first, saving only the Boat parts.

I never found the Paste command.
Where was I supposed to click on that?

Win 7 paint
Hello, I probably have a simple problem. I'm trying to draw an arrow onto a photograph using the arrow "shape" and then fill it in so that it is solid using the bucket tool. It doesn't work. I've tried saving as a bitmap but that didn't work either. Any help would be appreciated Thanks. JB
