Artisto is a desk accessory of the "Paint Cutter" variety. Artisto allows you to open up a MacPaint document from inside any program that supports desk accessories and select any portion of the image and copy it to the clipboard. From the clipboard, the graphic can be pasted into an application.
Notice: You must have a 512k (or larger) Mac in order to use this desk accessory. Don't try using it on a 128k Mac or under a 128k Switcher partition.
Artisto supports two tools: a hand for moving the image around and a selection tool for selecting a portion of the MacPaint image. The hand works exactly like the hand in MacPaint. It allows you to move around in the whole MacPaint image very quickly. Double-click on the hand icon to enter "show page" mode (just like MacPaint). The selection tool works just like it does in MacPaint except that if you drag outside the borders of the Artisto window, the image will automatically scroll. Double-click on the selection tool to select the whole image on the document. Use the "Copy" command under the application program's Edit menu or command-C to copy the selected image to the clipboard. Generally, I close Artisto before pasting the image into the desired document. You can toggle between the two tools without selecting the other tool by holding down the shift or option key.
Artisto puts up its own menu in the menu bar. Presently, the menu only has two options: Open and Show Page. Selecting Open brings up the mini-finder and allows you look at (and copy selections from, if desired) any MacPaint document on any disk. The Show Page command displays the whole document on the screen (al‡ MacPaint) and allows you to select which portion is visible on the screen.
