Picture changes when I save in Paint
Whenever I draw something in Paint, and then save it, the pixelation changes,
slightly distorting the picture. Does anyone know what exactly causes this
and if there's any way to prevent it?

RE: Picture changes when I save in Paint
Its not you and its not paint. It most likely is that you are saving in Jpeg
format. This uses a lossy codec for compression, and as such every time you
open and save something, the picture loses a small amount of quality. To
avoid this, i recommend saving in Bitmap format.
