Windows Paint Now Uses AI to Create Images with Dall-E

In the upcoming versions of Windows, there's an exciting surprise awaiting Paint users. Paint is transforming itself from a simple image editor into something more akin to Photoshop. After years of being a basic tool, it's now introducing new features like layers, transparency, and even a handy option for automatically removing the background from pictures. As Paint is a Microsoft product, it's also incorporating AI features.

One of the exciting additions to Paint is the "Cocreator" feature. Think of it as bringing the power of DALL-E to Paint. With Cocreator, you can input a description into Paint, pick an artistic style, and then watch as the program generates an image for you. It doesn't stop there – you get three different versions of your image to choose from. This is somewhat similar to the generative AI fill tool recently added to Photoshop by Adobe. However, Adobe's tool leans towards creating realistic images, while DALL-E, in Paint, excels at digital art and stylized visuals.

There are a couple of important things to keep in mind here. Firstly, this new feature is only available in a test version of Paint, which is currently open to a select group called Insiders. Even within this group, there are limitations. Once you receive the update, you'll need to put your name on a waitlist before you can start using these AI tools.

Furthermore, there's a restriction on how many images you can create. They've introduced a credit system, and when you're granted access to the preview, you'll receive 50 credits. Each credit allows you to generate one image with a given prompt. It's uncertain whether this credit system will continue once the new Paint is available to everyone. This is the same system they use in Bing Image Creator because running these AI servers costs Microsoft extra money.

The new Paint experience is currently rolling out to Insider users, so if you're interested in trying it out, you'll need to join their testing program. However, we should caution you as we always do – beta software like this can sometimes be a bit rough around the edges and might have some issues.
