Microsoft Windows Paint is soon going to get a much-needed update incorporating 3D objects and a better touch interface
Italy, Oct. 10, 2016, Red Newswire/-
There have been several rumours circling a new revamped version of Microsoft's Windows Paint service over the last couple of weeks. Today, this whole development is being taken to a whole new level as WindowsBlogItalia has leaked an early test version of the software.
The new leaked application is compatible with any computer running Windows 10 and anyone around the globe can download and try it. The software seems to have been completely revamped with a new touch-friendly interface and a behemoth of new features. The app will, apparently, be released as a Universal Windows app.
According to Microsoft, this leaked application was distributed to the company's testers in May.
Talking about new features, the new version of Paint supports 3D objects. This means you will now be able to add 3D animals, fishes and other graphics into your masterpieces. Items from the community will also be available for creators to incorporate.
Cropping images, inserting text and basic annotating has also been made easier on the newly revamped app. The Redmond giant has also added in a variety of 2D images to use in your projects.
All these additions are great, but we still aren't getting layering support on the software. According to the developers of the app, Paint is meant for casual image creation and editing-- for sketching, illustrating photos and other quick tasks, not a professional creative tool.
We don't quite know when the company will be officially launching the updated version of Paint, as of now. There is supposedly going to be a big Windows 10 event on October 26th, where the tech giant is expected to launch a new Surface all-in-one PC along with several Windows 10 apps. Our best guess is that the new Paint app could go mainstream at this event.
