How to Fade Colors in Paint


Microsoft Paint is a graphics editing program that comes as part of the Windows operating system. It is a simple-to-use painting program that allows a computer user to create bitmap, JPEG and GIF images. Paint has 48 standard colors set as the program default, but it is possible to edit these colors. Custom colors can be made through the program's "Edit Colors" setting and added to one of the 16 custom color slots available. Colors can also be faded using the luminosity setting.

Things You'll Need

  • Computer
  • Windows operating system
  • Open MS Paint by going to the Start Menu, Programs and Accessories.

  • Click the "Edit Colors" button on the top menu bar. Choose a color to fade from the default basic colors or by using the color field in the dialog box that appears.

  • Move the slider on the far right of the dialog box up to change the luminosity and fade the chosen color. Alternatively, you can increase the number in the "Lum" field at the bottom right of the dialog box to fade the color.

  • Click "OK" in the dialog box to save the faded color.
