Hands on with the new Microsoft Paint 3D app for Windows 10 Creators Update

3D is for everybody, proclaims Microsoft. So much so, Microsoft has built a brand new Paint app for the upcoming Windows 10 Creators Update that modernizes the 30 years old painting suite. New features include pen support, 3d models and a whole lot more.

The new Paint app also features a huge new community sharing service, that allows users to upload and download creations made by other people. Whether it be 3D models, a simple 2d painting, or something else entirely, you can share it with a whole community of people.

Paint has also gained some new features such as being able to crop images more precisely, remove backgrounds from images, save images with transparency, and more.

  • This is cool, can't wait to use it... I would love to use this now on my 950...
    Nevertheless, Still can't stop thinking about how mobile is lacking, and how this for mobile is more likely to be focused on iDroid, where the real users are. I swear, MS better give us few WM fans an equal experience... We'll see.
  • not for phone buddy.
  • Depends if its a UWP, since the new hp device can have a pen, its entirely possible for a phone or even continuum.
  • From what I understood, the new Paint *is* UWP, so we may well get it on our phones eventually
  • I suspect so as well.
  • I would be nice to have something, even if it wasn't 3D.
  • I hope this makes it to Mobile. Along with Ink.
  • Paint 3D is an evolution of good old Paint. I look forward to taking it for a spin (like a top, in 3D? Get it?).
  • I can't wait for them to come up with an affordable ink capable mobile continuum device that also dubs as a phone.
  • Can someone confirm the status for Continuum Mobile getting some kind of version of paint?
  • Ha! Great video Zac, I love your comments to your own work, great entertainment xD
