paint program
Last modified: Thursday, April 03, 1997 

A graphics program that enables you to draw pictures on the display screen which are represented as bit maps (bit-mapped graphics). In contrast, draw programs use vector graphics (object-oriented images), which scale better.

Most paint programs provide the tools shown below in the form of icons. By selecting an icon, you can perform functions associated with the tool.

In addition to these tools, paint programs also provide easy ways to draw common shapes such as straight lines, rectangles, circles, and ovals.

Sophisticated paint applications are often called image editing programs. These applications support many of the features of draw programs, such as the ability to work with objects. Each object, however, is represented as a bit map rather than as a vector image.
