This video will show you how to add your own pictures to the Home and Job sprites.

To start, click on the Costumes tab.

There are three ways to add images in Costumes.

Upload images from your computer, add costumes from the library, or paint your own costumes.

To upload an image from your computer, click the Upload Costume from File icon.

Once you've uploaded a new image, center it in the paint editor.

If the image is too large, use a shrink tool to make it smaller so it fits nicely in your project.

To add a costume from Scratch's library to the Home or Job sprites, click Add Sprite from Library.

Click on a sprite.

The rest of this video will show you how to draw your own sprite.

To create your own sprite, click on the Paint Your Own Sprite icon.

Here, you'll find a lot of tools.

The paintbrush tool allows you to draw.

To change the size of the paint brush, use a sizing tool.

Use the undo button to undo anything you don't like.

Computer scientists make mistakes all the time and they use those errors as ways to figure out how to do better next time.

To delete a whole costume, click the X in the top-right corner.

To copy a costume, right-click on it and select duplicate.

Then you can draw on the copy as well as the original.

Have fun exploring the drawing tools available in Scratch.

Now it's your turn.

Personalize your Imaginator with your own costumes.
