First Tutorial

This is my tutorial for editing a magazine cover in a fun and interesting way and posting a before and after image.  Go online and find a magazine cover and right click on it and select “save picture as” using a JPEG document type.  Then go to your picture and right click on it and select “open with” [an editing software]. . . I used Microsoft Paint.  For my cover I used one with a lot of black background because it was easy to edit.  In Microsoft Paint I selected an area, cut, and then filled the area in with black.  This allowed me to remove some of the data on the cover.  I removed the last line of the title on the lower left side and the text paragraph on the lower right side.  Then I added data by inserting a text box and using white ink so it would show on the black background.  I didn’t need to add anything to the title so I simply added a paragraph on the lower right side of the page.  Then I circled it in white to draw attention to it using the shapes option.

Here’s the before and after snap shots:
