Hello everyone. It’s been a long time since our last project – theRGB Selector, which was a really “colourful” as well as useful project. The current project i.e. the Sharp Paint also involves colours and we’re sure you’d love it. This program contains a PaintBrush-style functionality. It performs only the most basic tasks, though. You can create as well as save your drawings. If you’re looking for a similar program in C++, we do have one – in Turbo C++. It is theCanvas of Picasso.
You can download the Sharp Paint program here , or continue reading below. This program requires .NET Framework 4.5
As you might expect, this program uses the PictureBox Control provided by Visual Studio. Like we mentioned above, it is only a basic paintbrush program. It performs only the basic paintbrush functions like creating and saving drawings. As of now, you cannot edit existing images or print your drawings, but we do plan to add those features in a later version of this program.
The following images describe how this program works :
Sharp Paint – Idle
Sharp Paint – Sample Drawing
As you can see in the images above, there is a toolbar below the menu bar which can be used to change the drawing colour as well as the thickness of the lines which you draw. To clear the drawing space (the Canvas) and reset the drawing settings, click File -> New . To save the drawing, click File -> Save As… and set a filename for the image to be saved. That’s all… for now.
