An AI integrated Microsoft Paint? Okay, I'll bite.

Happy New Year!

Do you remember Microsoft Paint, the basic drawing tool that many of us used when we were younger to create simple drawings? It's something we don't use much these days. But guess what? There's a good reason to give it another shot, especially if you've upgraded to Windows 11.

Microsoft Paint has received a major upgrade in Windows 11, and the exciting part is that it involves artificial intelligence (AI).

The big news is the addition of Dall-E 3 support to Paint, which they call Cocreator within the app.

Does that ring a bell?

If you've come across this feature in Bing AI, you'll know it's a game-changer. This isn't just your average image creation tool. With Cocreator, you can simply tell it what you want, choose an art style, and watch as an image matching your description magically appears.

And this isn't some gimmick. When Cocreator was first introduced with Bing Chat (now known as Copilot), there was a rush to use its image generation capability, and it's received a lot of attention for how well it works.

Of course, there have been a few bumps in the road, but when it comes to AI, some challenges are expected.

According to reports from Windows Latest, Cocreator in Paint has moved out of the testing phase and is now available for all Windows 11 users.

If you haven't seen the Cocreator feature yet, don't worry, it's on its way. Just make sure you're using the latest version of Paint. And if Microsoft asks you to join a waiting list, go ahead and sign up.

But Cocreator isn't the only exciting addition to Paint. The app has seen some significant improvements this year, including a transparency effect, layers (which many people have been asking for), and even a background removal tool. And these upgrades aren't limited to Paint; Microsoft's main apps for Windows 11 are also getting a makeover.

Now, you might be wondering, "How does all of this benefit my business?"

Well, picture this: being able to create customized graphics for presentations, reports, or social media posts in just a few seconds. Think about the time and money you could save.

With Cocreator, anyone on your team can become a graphic designer. You won't need expensive software or extensive training – just describe what you need, and let AI handle the rest.

Excited to give it a try as you kick off the new year? You'll need to have Windows 11 installed. If you have any tech-related questions or need assistance with anything this year, don't hesitate to reach out to us.
