how to edit the picture?


You can edit a picture using Microsoft Paint brush. It comes free with Microsoft Windows XP and other MS OS.
To access Paintbrush. Go to the Start button and in the pop up menu click run. In the open run box type "mspaint" command and press Enter key. A window will open and you can edit pics.
MS Paintbrush is a very simple software. If you want to do something really rich you have to separately buy or download and purchase "Adobe Photoshop" to really work like professional.
