MS Paint Gets Overhaul

We’ve had MS Paint on our computers for decades. You may even use it daily to edit screenshots or make basic photo changes. Well, the iconic Microsoft Paint looks to be finally getting a long-overdue revamp. Videos have leaked on twitter, which demonstrates tools to give 2D drawings the third dimension, bringing things like ‘fish tanks’ and ‘flower arranging’ to life.

Although the development has not yet been officially confirmed (or denied) by Microsoft, it certainly appears to be an interesting move for the software, which is a classic piece of software for any long term Windows users. (2020 update: find out about Paint 3D here.)

As someone who grew up using Windows 98, ME and XP, I remember all the hours spent in my IT classes. I loved to use the Spray Can and Fill tools to create some absolute masterpieces. To now find out that these could have a 3D element makes my inner teenager very giddy indeed.




Check out this video, and let us know what you think! I’m keen to know if it will be a free program or an additional offering for the Microsoft suite. I’m hoping it will be a freebie, of course.
