integrated artificial intelligence for image creation

Currently, paint is experiencing deep upheavals. In addition to managing layers like Photoshop, Microsoft will actually equip its graphics software with an AI image generation module. Little revolution!

Often derided for its relative weakness compared to other drawing and image editing apps, Paint appears to be making a comeback in prominence these days. Microsoft’s graphics software that comes standard with Windows has undergone changes in recent months, with the publisher constantly updating it with a dark mode to bring it in line with the new visual standards of Windows 10 and 11. It now finds itself besotted with artificial intelligence that opens up new horizons for him. So, after announcing the appearance of an automatic background removal function for click-to-crop, Microsoft introduces a module for creating images from a simple text command, like DALL -E and other Midjourney. And to top it all off, Paint will also be able to handle slaps just like professional software like Photoshop. It is enough to radically change the scale…

Paint Cocreator: Automatically create images using AI

As announced in a blog post, Microsoft has decided to equip Paint with generative AI to integrate a feature similar to the DALL-E-based Bing Image Creator. Let’s remember that the latter allows you to generate unique images from simple text descriptions, which we call hints. A new Paint feature called Cocreator uses the same principle. You only need to describe the image you want in a few words for Paint to generate three thumbnails. Once you select one of them, you can edit it using various software tools. Please note that, as with Bing Image Creator and DALL-E, image creation comes with restrictions and filters to prevent “creating harmful, offensive or inappropriate images”.

Cocreator uses roughly the same principle as Generative Fill, Firefly AI in Photoshop… including the payment system (see our article). In fact, Microsoft will offer users fifty credits to get started – every time the AI ​​creates an image, a credit is spent – meaning you’ll have to pay to get it once your stock runs out. Note that to be able to use Cocreator, you’ll need to be connected to your Microsoft account, which suggests the credit system may be linked to the firm’s Rewards loyalty program. This feature is currently being evaluated and tested through the Canary and Dev channels of the Windows Insider program.

Microsoft is using an update to Paint to enable background removal—automatically, without the need for complex manipulation (see our article)—and layers in the program in just a few seconds. Indeed, Paint is now capable of overlaying images, text and other graphic elements on top of each other. The panel groups different layers that can be hidden, deleted or merged. In short, features that have so far only been available in more advanced image editors like Photoshop, and that users have been asking Microsoft for for years.
