Microsoft Paint now includes free Photoshop-like features

We’ve all used the Microsoft Paint software since we were kids. It was formerly one of the first few programmes that new Windows users would come across and experiment with before the Internet took over the globe.

While the Paint app has been revamped and new features introduced over the years, it has mostly stayed same. But things are changing now! To help users to create more intricate artwork, Microsoft has incorporated powerful Photoshop-like tools like as transparency and layering.

In a blog post, Microsoft stated,?Today, we are starting to roll out an update for the Paint app to Windows Insiders in the Canary and Dev Channels (version 11.2308.18.0 or above). 

We are adding support for layers and transparency with this release. These two functions are essential for advanced picture editing tools like Photoshop, which enable users to produce richer digital art.

Microsoft Paint gets two new features

You can now easily modify and refine your digital art on the canvas by adding, deleting, and organising layers. Layers allow you to layer shapes, text, and numerous visual components to create complex compositions. To begin, just click the Layers icon in the toolbar, which will reveal a side panel next to the canvas. 

This panel is the command centre for adding additional layers to the canvas. Play around with the layer order in this panel to see how it impacts the organisation of stacked picture components on the canvas. You may also quickly control the display of individual layers, duplicate layers, and blend layers together to get your desired creative result.

Another feature dubbed Transparency, which allows users to open and save photos in transparent PNG format, has also been added to the Paint programme. A checkerboard pattern on the canvas denotes the transparent portions of the picture when you are working with a single layer. 

Instead of covering the region with white, erasing any material from the canvas will now really delete that content. When there are several levels, erasing material from one layer reveals the content of the ones below it. Insider users will soon be able to use these features on their accounts when they are being pushed out.
