An AI-Charged Blast From the Past

Remember the days of Microsoft Paint? That simple yet nostalgic drawing tool we used to craft our pixelated wonders? You might think it’s become obsolete in today’s app landscape. But hold on—there’s a compelling reason to give it a second look now.

What’s New for Windows 11

In the realm of Windows 11, Microsoft Paint is undergoing a major overhaul, and it’s all thanks to AI.

Here’s the scoop: Paint is introducing Dall-E 3 support, known as Cocreator within the app. Sound familiar? If you’ve experienced the wonders of Bing AI, you’ll recognize this as a game-changer. Cocreator doesn’t just create images; it brings your descriptions to life by applying specified art styles.

This isn’t a mere novelty. When Cocreator debuted with Bing Chat (now Copilot), it caused a sensation due to its image generation prowess. Though there were initial glitches, in the realm of AI, a few bumps are par for the course.

Reports from Windows Latest indicate that Cocreator in Paint has graduated from testing and is now available to all Windows 11 users.

If you haven’t spotted Cocreator yet, don’t fret; it’s on its way. Just ensure you’ve got the latest Paint version. And if Microsoft suggests joining a waiting list, jump on it.

Now, you might wonder, “How does this benefit my business?” Picture effortlessly crafting custom graphics for presentations, reports, or social media—saving time and money.

With Cocreator, anyone on your team can dabble in graphic design without pricey software or extensive training. Describe what you want, and let AI take it from there.
