Microsoft Photodraw

A Microsoft Graphics Editor

Microsoft PhotoDraw 2000 was released in 1999 as part of Microsoft Office 2000. The other programs in Office handle document creation and editing, (word processing, spreadsheets, presentations etc) and Photodraw was created to provide graphics capabilities. After PhotoDraw 2000 Version 2 was released, however, Microsoft discontinued the program. I know that there is a select set of hardcore PhotoDraw fans out there, and these tutorials are to serve them.

PhotoDraw is a full-featured graphics editor like Adobe Illustrator, CorelDRAW or Macromedia Freehand, that can manipulate vector and bitmap images alike. Developed for semiprofessional business use, it includes a vast library of clip-art, and a good collection of additional fonts. Being very powerful, PhotoDRaw can be used by the classroom teacher as they integrate technology into their classroom.

On this page I've listed tutorials (on this site), links to other related sites and also some project related ideas.

It is nigh on impossible to get Microsoft PhotoDraw if you don't already have it. If you are without, don't despair! There are many better image editing programs on the market. If you have Fireworks, you will find these Fireworks tutorials a good introduction to using the program.
