When we got the first computer on our hands, as a kid, we were intrigued with MS paint. It was the one application that made us aware that digitally we could unleash our creativity. All of us, especially the 90s kids were a bit disheartened when we learned that Microsoft will stop supporting MS paint very soon, in order to promote Paint 3D, that comes with windows 10. Although Paint is still available in Windows, eventually Microsoft plans to remove it permanently and only keep it as a Windows store product for users who still wants to use MS Paint.
Thanks to its simplicity and ease of use, and the fact that it was bundled with every Windows machine, Paint rapidly became one of the most used apps in the early versions of Windows. It introduced huge numbers of people to painting on a computer for the first time.
The principal features of MS Paint are simple drawing tools that you can use to easily paint on a blank canvas or existing image. Beyond that, Paint includes cropping, resizing, rotating, skewing, and selection tools to further manipulate images.
The joy of Paint is simply playing around with the tools and seeing what artworks you can create. With a few swooshes, drags and clicks, you can create weird arrangements of overlapping shapes filled with color. You can erase sections, paint and draw freehand lines, and add airbrush effects and text in a range of fonts. You can even add a transparent background.

Microsoft Paint app is free and it should be installed by default on your Windows PC. You can find Microsoft Paint from Start Menu. You can also press Windows + S, type paint in the Windows Search box, and select Paint app to open it.
For Windows 10 users, you can type paint 3d in the Search box, select Paint 3D to open the Microsoft Paint 3D app that includes some 2D and 3D painting tools. It is also free.
Since its inception, Mac has been the operating system of choice for creative enthusiasts and professionals around the globe. So it's no wonder that macOS is the primary destination for the best new drawing, painting, image and video editing, and sketching applications.
As mentioned above, beginning your journey with Preview will cover all your basic needs that Windows Paint used to do. To get a specific result, you can try apps with more to offer, such as Tayasui Sketches for painting or Capto for working on images.
Not everyone knows that Mac's default Preview application is not only an image viewer but also provides a basic painting and annotating toolkit that's just enough for it to be a decent substitute for Microsoft Paint for Mac. Here's how to access it.
The download link for classic Microsoft Paint has been posted on Twitter today. The app was announced as depreciated back in 2017 in favor of Microsoft Paint 3D. But Microsoft later clarified and promised to bring MS Paint in Microsoft store as a free app.
Paintbrush is a simple paint program for OS X, reminiscent of Microsoft Paint and Apple's own now-defunct MacPaint. It provides users with a means to make simple images quickly, something which has been noticeably absent from the Mac for years.
People make beautiful graphics and pieces of sports art that make your jaw drop, but this Twitter account will make your jaw drop in a different way. They make sports graphics, specifically NBA graphics but it is all on the platform Microsoft paint.
Confession: we are regular users of Paint, which is among the oldest Windows applications. The first version was in the 1985 Windows 1.0, licensed from ZSoft Corporation's PC Paintbrush, which was monochrome. At the time, paint applications were closely associated with that new-fangled alternative to the keyboard for screen navigation, the mouse. Windows 3.0 in 1990 brought colour support, though the application was still called Paintbrush.
We should mention that the colour palette in the Windows 11 Paint has round selectors, where the Windows 10 paint has squares. The targets seem smaller (a bad thing) but are not, since the clickable area remains a square. In other words, clicking near but outside the circle still selects the colour.
Before there were memes, social media, and cat videos, there was Microsoft Paint. Its radically simplistic design is comfortably familiar to anyone who has ever used a PC since the program's inception in 1985, and it hasn't evolved much at all since then. The OG time waster and ultimate design tool (Adobe's Illustrator didn't come around until 1987) came preinstalled on Windows computers and captured the hearts of millions, as evidenced by the outpouring of grief when news spread yesterday that Microsoft would no longer be updating the beloved paint app, inviting the possibility that the program would eventually be removed from future updates.
If you're lacking creative ideas for a more complicated project, you can work with the prebuilt 3D models available in the Remix 3D panel. You can also download stickers from the community, which you can apply to your model for decoration. When you apply a sticker, it automatically wraps itself around the 3D object, while any paint you apply sticks perfectly to the edges of your creation.
There are a number of shapes to choose from which makes it easy to place pre-defined objects into your paintings and sketches. Colors can easily be chosen with gradients. Other tools include a selection tool to move and play around with images and objects, filters, and effects.
Only basic shapes like circles and squares among others are there. There is a paintbrush and an eraser to remove your mess. You can quickly add text if you want. The fill-in color option will remind you of the former. Paint for Android is ad-supported but otherwise, completely free.
There is a paintbrush where you can control the thickness and color, an eraser, a line, a bunch of basic shapes, and an option to select and fill the color of your choice. Remember when I said I use MS Paint to resize images. Pocket Paint got that covered too. There is also a stamp and hand tool though not many of you would be using it, I guess.
Focused on comic book fans and artists, MediBang comes with an easy to use interface with a number of tools at your disposal. What I like is the ability to create your own shortcut menu of tools and brushes that you use frequently. Cool. There is no dearth of readymade scenes like a cityscape, comic book fonts, and other addons for painting your masterpiece. Another cool feature is the ability to work with layers.
There is a website known as \"MSPaintXP\" that offers a download link of a copy of XP Paint, but the site has locked the copy of Paint in an installer which not only downloads some sort of OTHER installer while it's working, but it pops up several ads in quick succession that are designed to trick the user into installing software other than Paint that the user does not want. The XP version of Paint does NOT and has never needed to be installed on any version of Windows and works with full functionality simply by opening the standalone executable. Because of this shady behavior, it is highly recommended to avoid using the MSPaintXP site to get a copy of XP Paint. Instead, if you have access to a computer with Windows XP, mspaint.exe can be simply copied onto a flash drive or other means of file transfer to allow you to move it to another computer.
If you do not have access to a computer with Windows XP, Vipershark has uploaded his personal copy of MSPaint obtained from a freshly installed copy of Windows XP Service Pack 3, which is available for download below:mspaint.exe on MEGA (md5 hash: 949bc05cef66bcd68eb23f08eb4c2dff)The version of Paint that is included in the MSPaintXP installer is actually an older version of Paint and the md5 hash does not match my copy despite their identical file size.
I am going to apply for a new Motor patent. I will only use electrical circuit schemes and drawings to explain it. Does microsoft paint suit for drawings I know I have to use vectoral drawings but I really don't know what it actually means.
Yes you can use MS Paint, but it isn't a good choice. Paint is a painting program which means it edits pixels. Thus its output when printed tends to look blocky and low quality. Much better is a vector drawing application. These print out at high resolution and allow scaling without degradation. If you have access to Microsoft Office, then you will find reasonably useful drawing tools embedded in those applications. I generally find it easier to access them in PowerPoint, although you can find them in Word too. With a painting program once you draw a line, it is hard to change it. With a drawing program, you can draw a line, select the endpoint and move it. You can just as easily change its thickness or add an arrow head. In some programs you can link an endpoint of one line to another object which makes drawing diagrams so much easier to edit. If you've never used a drawing program, a few YouTube videos should get you going.

Microsoft never said they were going to kill mspaint.exe: they were merely going to stop updating it. Which to me, a Paint fan, is perfect: Paint is charming precisely because it is outdated. Anything you do to bring it up to date only makes Paint less obsolete, and as such less charming. 59ce067264
