Misha's Guide to Coloring
Besides tagging images and uploading new art, another way people can contribute is by coloring images. The booru is filled with tons of uncolored images just waiting for you to add your personal touch!

There are many ways to color, but since I am a beginner, I will give you a beginner guide too so it will be nice and easy for us.

Before we start, we'll need an image editing program. For this guide I will be using paint.net.

Stuff like Photoshop or Sai is better for artwork, but we are doing a simple color job and it's freeware, so paint.net will do for us. So go ahead and install it.

In addition, you will need the Boltbait plugins, and the Pyrochild plugins.

Open both of these links in a different tab, and you should get a prompt to open a zip file. Open then, and then double click on the exe files that will show up in order to install the plugins (make sure to install paint.net first of course!)

Now you're all set up, and ready to color an image! Since it involves images, I provided a link to help you get an easier grasp of the technique.

What about using a mouse(i don't have a drawing tablet and coloring it with a precision tool like a drawing pencil/paintbrush is hard and unstably inaccurate so i resort to using the fill a solid color option)? Gitgud?

I color using a mouse and the fill-in option too. The colors will be flat, but it will get the job done. I suggest looking at the imgur link in the op to get an idea of how to do it.
