MS Paint not working; colours?

November 18, 2009 at 11:31:32
Specs: Windows Vista
When I try to fill sections of a picture I saved from another source, they come up as different shades of grey instead of bright red or purple etc. Does anyone know why this is or what could change it? Thanks

Try changing the kind of color. like RBG or CMYK. this kinda thing happens in Photoshop all the time.

there doesn't appear to be any difference when i change to 'colors' from attributes, and i can't find where to change to RGB? also when i tried to save it as a jpeg instead of a gif i got an error message saying 'save interrupted'.. any help? thanks.

Your problem is this: When I try to fill sections of a picture I saved from another source. All graph programs - not just M$ Paint - work best only when the image you opened for editing is in its native and unaltered format.
