The New Microsoft Paint App Has Leaked Online

Microsoft Paint is being overhauled in a big, bold way. And the new Microsoft Paint for Windows 10 has now leaked online. The big revelation is that it actually looks quite good. As difficult as that may be to believe.

Paint has always been a staple part of Windows, and the program hasn’t really changed over the years. Microsoft hasn’t done much more than give it a quick lick of paint (excuse the pun) here and there. That is until now.

It turns out that Microsoft has been working on a new version of Paint for months. Over the weekend, a Twitter user called WalkingCat posted two videos showing the new Microsoft Paint in action. The first is an introduction to the app, while the second is a 3D tutorial.

The new Microsoft Paint is currently being tested by a small band of selected Windows insiders, who have had their hands on it since May. It’s likely to be officially unveiled at the next Windows 10 event on October 26.

In the meantime, let’s take the briefest of brief looks at what’s included in the new Microsoft Paint app for Windows 10… Windows 10 Is the Last Version of Windows. Ever. Windows 10 Is the Last Version of Windows. Ever. Microsoft is sick of you not upgrading, and has a solution: Windows 10 will be the final “version” of Windows. Ever. This could mean that you will never again have to buy Windows.

Microsoft Paint: Simple Yet Effective

The new Microsoft Paint looks very different than the old one we all know and love like put up with. It’s quick, it’s pretty, and the basic elements work as well as they always have.

Unfortunately, in the version leaked online, there is no support for layers, no support for multiple files to be open at the same time, and a distinct lack of shortcuts. However, you can crop and resize images, add text, and use a variety of brushes. The addition of 3D modelling is exciting, if not exactly innovative.

Microsoft Paint therefore remains a basic tool for editing photos and creating objects. However, it’s unlikely to compete with Adobe Photoshop or its professional-grade alternatives.
