This is the user manual for Version 1.0 of the web app YinYangPaint, accessible for free at yinyangpaint.com. Written by Joey Lemberg on Feb 2, 2014.

Preface

Nobody asked for an image editor. There are many free Paint/Photoshop programs already.

However I am certain that in the near future, there will be at least one very popular HTML5 image editor. Given how powerful and widely supported HTML5 is, all image manipulation previously done only with native applications is possible in HTML5 apps.

So I tried to make just such an app. This manual is intended to help you use YinYangPaint 1.0. I have worked on this project on-and-off for about a year, so unless it lives up to this hype and is adopted by some users, this will be the final version of YinYangPaint. It works very well, but it could do more better. If YinYangPaint is indeed good enough for some people to use, I'll keep adding and improving the functionality of the program.

So I thank you for giving YinYangPaint a chance, and I hope you find it 'good enough to use'. Email me at joeylemberg@gmail.com with any thoughts or questions.

FAQ

Who is YinYangPaint meant for?

Anyone looking for a program to make and edit pictures.

How do I download it?

You don't download it! You can use it right in the browser without downloading or installing anything.

Why does the program look so weird?

Because it was created by a guy with no graphic design experience.

What's up with these questions?

Honestly, I made up these questions. If you have a serious question, please ask it in an email to joey@yangcanvas.com and I will post and answer your question on this page.
