Draw provides many useful tools that you can use for drawings. You might use Draw for months before discovering how each tool can benefit you, but you'll always feel well-rewarded when you come upon one. For example, Draw's Gallery is a comprehensive collection of graphics, sounds, and other objects, arranged in named themes .

Themes

A collection of graphic files you save as a group under a theme name . The Gallery comes with several predesigned themes, such as Backgrounds and Bullets.


This chapter explains how to use the Gallery to improve your images. In addition, you'll learn to take your drawings to the next step by adding three-dimensional text. Finally, the world is available inside your own drawings because Draw supports direct scanning of outside materials directly into your drawings. Once these scanned images are in your drawings, you'll be able to manipulate them just as you can any other graphic images.
