Paint

US based tech giant Microsoft had introduced its tool Paint, which was one of the earliest tools that was used in the early days. After 32 years, the company is ready to take it down as it will stop support for the app with the launch of the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. The program allowed the users to use different shapes, with different brushes, easy copy and paste works or just scribble when you felt bored.

Paint was one of the first graphic editors and had become popular among the Windows users. But it was only in Windows 98 the files of the app could be saved as JPEG files. However, Paint is not the only program which will be taken back. The list includes Reader App, Outlook Express and Reader List which will be either removed or deprecated from the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. The program is under the deprecated column which means that it will not be developed anymore and can be removed in future releases.

So what do the users get if the old app is taken back? For users, who might not get over Paint, Microsoft intends to push such users towards the Paint 3D which was introduced in April, 2017 with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update and is considered as a better professional editing software. As the name suggests the users can make 3D images with the help of tools. Even the support page of Microsoft has mentioned that the 3D Builder app will not be installed by default and has appealed the users to use Paint 3D.

Whatever, the new technology says, the good old program will always be remembered for having the simplest interface which made it easy for the creators to create artistic content. However, it still cannot be said if the closure of the old app will push the users to adopt Paint 3D.
