Using Snap Shot

Step 1: Add an image to play with using the ideas box

First pick an idea to play with from the ideas box. Click the ‘Image’ tab to select an image, then click it to put it on the drawing board. For words, select the ‘Text’ tab, then click the tick. Use ‘Lucky Dip’ for a random image or word.

Step 2: Use the tools to play with the image

Use the tools to play with your idea. Reflect, rotate, scale, bend, erase or cut to get different effects.

Step 3: To draw on the idea, use the pen tool and colour wheel

Use the pen tool and the colour wheel to draw onto your idea.

Step 4: Click 'Finish' to Print, Save or Flip your idea to another tool

When you're done, click ‘Finish’ to ‘Save’ or ‘Print’ your new idea, or ‘Flip’ it to another Pinball tool to do something new with it.

Controls for Keyboard Users

Use TAB to move around the buttons. In the Ideas Box, use TAB, UP and DOWN ARROWS and ENTER to move around the tabs. The only tool available to keyboard users is the MIRROR tool. TAB into the small blue arrow and press LEFT AND RIGHT arrows to slide mirror. TAB into the large blue arrow and use 'U' and 'D' keys to rotate the mirror.

We are currently working on making more of the Tools available to keyboard users.
