Do you remember Microsoft Paint, that basic drawing tool we all used to unleash our pixelated creativity during our younger years? Well, guess what? It’s making a comeback in Windows 11, and this time it’s equipped with some serious AI magic.

The big news is the integration of Dall-E 3, or as it’s called in the app, Cocreator. Now, if you’ve heard of this feature in Bing AI, you know it’s a game-changer. It’s not your run-of-the-mill image creation tool. With Cocreator, you can simply tell it what you want, pick an art style, and voila – an image matching your description magically appears.

This isn’t just a gimmick. When Cocreator was first introduced with Bing Chat (now Copilot), people rushed to use its image generation capability, and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.

After some testing, Windows Latest reports that Cocreator in Paint is ready for prime time and is now rolling out to all Windows 11 users. If you don’t see it yet, don’t worry; it’s on its way. Just make sure your Paint is up to date, and if Microsoft asks you to sign up for the waiting list, go for it.

But wait, there’s more! Cocreator isn’t the only upgrade Paint got this year. The app has been seriously beefed up with a transparency effect, layers (finally!), and even background removal. And these improvements aren’t limited to Paint – Microsoft’s core Windows 11 apps are also getting a makeover.

Now, you might be wondering, “How does this benefit my business?” Imagine effortlessly creating custom graphics for presentations, reports, or social media posts in seconds. Think about the time and money that could save you.

With Cocreator, anyone on your team can become a graphic designer without the need for expensive software or extensive training. Just describe what you want, and let AI do the heavy lifting.

Excited to give it a shot? It’s a fantastic way to kick off the new year. Just make sure you have Windows 11 installed. If you need a hand with that or any other tech issues this year, don’t hesitate to reach out.
