hello!!! i have just found this forum and i am soo excited and greatful for this.
ok, on to my question. to start off with, i had gotten this computer from a family friend and they had windows 95 installed in it. and of course it had the mspaint program in it also. well, we updated it to 98 and we still have the paint program, but i am wondering why when i put an image in to color on it, lets say a doll body, i am unable to use the colors that they give you. the only colors that it lets me use are the colors that are just on the base body of a doll that i put in there. when i just open up a new page on there, and not put a anything on the page, it lets me use all the colors.
is it becouse the image that i am putting in there is of gif format, or do i have to update the paint program to fit my 98 since it was installed under the 95 version?? and if i have to do that does anyone know where i may find it?? i have gone on google and can't figure out what the heck i am doing :tazz:

please, please ;) me!!!

i would appreciate anyone that can help me figure out what is going on here.
oh, and here is an example of what i am talking about:

You have to go to File at the top of the page and choose Save As from the pulldown menu for it to save any changes you made to an image. And you have to make sure that it saves as the same filename and type as the original, or it will make another copy of another filetype.
