I don’t code. I also lack the math gene (which is a personal frustration, as I love reading about mathematicians, their discoveries, and the power of algorithms). This makes me see things like computer programming as basically magic.
Being such a rube, I’m easily impressed by things that might — or probably — make experts yawn (or even sneer at my eejitcy).
Nevertheless, from time to time, I will do posts that I hope will be helpful to those reading this who are also unschooled in the magical art of programming. In this way, I hope we’ll all get a better appreciation of what kinds of programs we might be able to have on the Pre.

To test this, I picked an image and did what I usually do with images: highlight in red. Here’s the result:

The increment of Firefox 2.x I use might not work with all features. The problem I had was after selecting and Cutting a portion of the image, New didn’t work properly. I couldn’t get a proper blank canvas. Doing a Paste of what I had in the Clipboard resulted in a blank area.
You can go ahead and laugh, but MS Paint is what I use to process screensnaps: trim, highlighting. Then I open the Saved JPG in Photo Toolkit for final trim and rescaling.
