Colouring Help Section
All the Free Coloring pages featured on this site are designed so they will print on to an A4 sheet regardless of if you have it set your printer on portrait or landscape settings. You can also save the image to your computer and import it print it from within a publishing program like Microsoft's Word. Will also write a tutorial on how best to use 'Print preview' from the browser soon.
I have just altered the Free Colouring pages website, now you can click on the picture you want and it will open in a new window, then click print or print preview from your browser toolbar, or press Ctrl and P on your keyboard (on an Apple Mac press Apple and P)
Please note none of the banners will print out on the main kids colouring pages.
All the Free Coloring pictures featured on this site are individually created by me - Dave Seipp, they may not be distributed, sold or linked to from other sites, if you do want to link to a particular Colouring picture, please link to the html web page that its on instead.
To scale the images on the fuzzy felt games, drag an image onto the screen roughly where you want to place it, then click on the image with the mouse, hold down the shift key and move the mouse gently up and down. This method can shrink and make the fuzzy felt images larger and smaller giving a wider range of uses for the images when placed on the screen.
The Online Colouring section for example the new Dragon Coloring pages will need a Java Plugin on your computer, it wont work unless the computer you are using has this on it. I have also tested it on Apple Macs in the past and found the colouring in colours sometimes don't appear, if you click the mouse just under the image it activates the colours (please don't ask me why) :).
I am also adding new online colouring pages that need the Adobe Flash plugin and have far more features including:
- Altering Brush Size
- Colour Picker (choose brand new colours)
- Flood Fill
- Magic Paintbrush
- Normal Paintbrush
- Un Do
- Re Do
- Save to computer
- Print out coloured in picture
- Post on facebook Gallery
To name but a few
I've spend quite a bit of time running round the site getting the pages so they will print one click from the main category page, so if you are on Hedgehogs you should be able to click on a thumbnail image or link then print the printable on that page. I spent three days/nights fixing these so I might have missed one or more. If you do spot one that doesn't print well please let me know and I'll get it fixed.
Charity and Non Profit
If you would like to use some of my free colouring pictures for a 'non profit project' or 'charity project', please e-mail me from the Contact page.
If there's something you think I need to add to the help page, please again let me know.
