I'm Parker Pierce, and we're going to discuss how to select an object in Paint. If you've ever drawn art in MS Paint and you wanna move it around or arrange it for various reasons, you'll need to know how the tools work. For this example, you'll need some marks of some sort. Go ahead and throw down a few circles and lines. Next, click on the select tool on the side. You can drag a box over a part of the canvas, and the selection will allow you to move it and edit it. You can move whole parts, or pieces, depending on how big of a selection you make. Another type of selection you get is simply the control you have and the start of making your shapes. Until you click away, you can change their colors, their direction, their size, everything.
