The End of Microsoft Paint

Do you remember the program Microsoft Paint? Some say the program’s use is coming to an end. This is due to the advancing capabilities of new programs that allow users a more advanced control of their projects.  Microsoft will be removing the default installation of the paint program and will be replacing it with a modern version of the app called Paint3D. 

A Short History of Paint

When the program paint was first introduced in 1985 it was considered to be the most advanced program in its kind. The program paint came installed when the original version of Microsoft Windows was released. The program paint is what mostly everybody relates to when it comes to drawing and using colors on the computer. This is true for kids and adults.
The program has many neat features. A lot of users enjoy all of the different types of brushes, colors and the fill feature which is used in Paint.

Since the news got out that Microsoft will be removing the program for a more advanced version people have been posting their different works of art they have created on Paint on the web. From Doodles saying “R.I.P Paint” to elaborate paintings which were created on the program as a form of saying the program will be missed.

Many people associate the program with color and drawing on Microsoft Windows. From when the first version was initially released to modern date the program has changed very little. A lot of people have memories of paint as this is the program they would use to create art on the computer.

Advanced Practices on Paint

Although if you are trying to create a drawing it might be very difficult to get the precision you want and achieve the drawing the way you want it you can have lots of fun just creating random pieces of work and messing around with different brushing techniques and colors.

Also a lot of people had advanced practice on the program Paint and would use it as a form to fill in images with the many colors and features on the program which were quite impressive. The program allowed users to load images and paint them to their liking. Whether investing lots of time into painting an image and creating a very complex piece of work or just a simple image fill the way they enjoyed it is something to remember.

The program will still be available after the new version Paint3D comes to Windows updates. A lot of people will just let it go and start using Paint3D as this is what will be installed on the computer. Since the program Paint will still be available for download some people who have memories of the program or have grown to be very skilled in paint will still keep it in their desktop.
