You have all the questions, your internet connection is up and running, so why not try to have a go with google? You can ask specific questions you have along the way here, but not ask for help on how to create a project and all the follow up steps with it.

Implementing a such program is not as easy as it seems. To Answer your question directly we need to know what are the API's that you are using. I guess you are using Win32 API or MFC.
If you're using one of those API's, you should know about :
~ GDI or GDI+ (or any other Graphics Library such as DirectX or OpenGL, But GDI is a good choice in small programs)
~ Handling messages properly (Mouse, Paint)
~ Undo Redo techniques, see here.
~ Handling Bitmaps
In GDI or GDI+ the key to develop a such program is about handling Memory-DCs and Bitmaps together with other Drawing functions.

GDI is definitely a good starting point... specially for simple graphics.

I think, I need to learn more about API's and I am going to study win32. I hope, I will be able to complete my project and can ask more specific question here.
Thank you all.

If you want to learn Win32 programming. Then buy the book : Programming Windows by Charles Petzold 5th edition. That'll be the best !
