Transcript

This video shows you how to edit the way your sprite looks.

Click on the Costumes tab.

You'll see the sprite inside the Paint Editor.

You'll edit the sprite using these tools.

Use the select tool and click on the sprite.

You'll know that you've selected the sprite when you see a box around it.

With the sprite selected, you can move it by clicking and dragging, rotate it, or change its size by dragging the squares on the corners and sides.

If you make a mistake while editing the sprite, that's okay!

Computer scientists make mistakes all the time, and they use those mistakes to learn what they should do differently next time.

Use the undo button to undo your last action, then try again until you have something you like.

Now you can move, rotate, and resize your sprite, but you might want to change only one part of a sprite.

To make that happen, select the sprite, then click the Ungroup button.

The sprite now splits into many parts that you can move, rotate or resize individually.

Move the arms and the legs a tiny bit to create your first animation frame.

There is one more drawing tool to try, the reshape tool.

Use this tool to edit points and lines.

Now it's your turn.

Edit the sprite.

Try the following tools: Select, Undo, Ungroup, and Reshape.

Have fun!
