The Tool Palette (Cont.)
The last twelve tools on Tools Palette will be illustrated below with animated images. I broke this section into to prevent twenty-two animated images from loading on one page. (Please be patient as the animated images load below.)
Paintbrush - This tool is used to free hand markings on the image. These markings can be made in the selected color and in a verity of sizes.
Eraser - This tool is used to remove parts of an image or layer. When used on an image, or bottom layer it will leave a transparent background. When used on a layer other than the bottom one this will leave a hole in the layer that will show the underlying layer.
Pencil - This tool is used to make free hand markings that are 1 pixel in size.
Color Picker - This tool is used to select a color from the image you are working on. Notice the primary color change color to match the color of the location I clicked on.

This can be useful for eliminating troublesome sections that has multiple colors, patters, or textures as it will replicate those section as place them in the image. Press Ctrl+left click to set origion and left click to start painting the cloned object.
