Fresh Paint shares its brushes with 512MB Windows Phone 8 devices in latest update

Microsoft's must-have Fresh Paint app has been bumped to version 1.0.3255.1, which opens up support for Windows Phone 8 devices with 512MB RAM. Previously only available to hardware with 1GB of RAM (sounds odd, we know), the app was exclusive to those with premium smartphones. Now anyone with a Windows Phone 8 handset can take full advantage of the tools available and unleash their creativity.

Also available on Windows 8 (and Windows 8.1), if you've not yet had the opportunity to use Fresh Paint, it's super easy to get started. For the phone version, you can utilise the cameras to snap the perfect photo and then colour it in by hand (using different brush sizes and strokes). The Lens feature enables you to view a live preview of the photo through various filters, including sketch and oil. There's a lot more to do than meets the eye and it's quite a laugh too.

We strongly recommend you check out the latest version, especially if you enjoy editing photos and whatnot. You can download Fresh Paint here from the Windows Phone Store.
