Microsoft Paint Is Not Being Axed Anymore

A scene from'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Last year Microsoft a new version of the program called Paint 3D that allows for the creation of 3D images.

Fear not Microsoft Paint fans, the beloved, 32-year-old user-friendly art program isn't going anywhere. She says that the outpouring of support for MS Paint caught the company's attention and that it needs to clarify some things.

Yesterday, Microsoft published an official list of all the Windows features that are being removed or deprecated with the upcoming Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. The software may have been simple in its offerings but features such as the ability to adjust imagery pixel-by-pixel, have been a major draw for professional artists and amateurs alike. "It's been awesome to see so much love for our trusty old app", said Megan Saunders, a general manager at Microsoft, in a blog post on Monday.

But Microsoft downplayed the concerns in a statement late Monday, noting that the component would not be removed completely. But one long-standing stalwart of the Windows experience has been put on the chopping block: Microsoft Paint, The Guardian reports. The app will further be available for free with the Windows 10 Creator Update. It is in fact going to be available for free on the Windows Store. According to the list, Paint joins Outlook Express, Reading list, and Reader app as one of the functions that will be removed from future versions of Windows. "It has been wonderful to see so much love for our trusty old app", it said. The new program will be available with a Microsoft Surface Pen, enabling a detailed and more natural drawing for its users.

It now includes some 2D image editing tools and 3D image creating tools but looked quite different from the traditional MS Paint.
