As part of the new Windows 10 Creator’s Update, codenamed ‘Red Stone 2’, Microsoft announced that the integration of 3D Paint, a tool that allows users to create collages and edit pictures more efficiently.
During a tech presentation hosted in New York, unveiled the improved version of Paint, and how powerful it can when used alongside the newest gadgets on the market.
So, apart from being able to cut, paste, crop, and paint, the latest version of Paint, called 3D paint, allows the users to manipulate pictures in pure 3D. In a mind-blowing demonstration, the host of the event showed us the full potential of 3D Paint.
Using a Windows Phone application called Windows Capture 3D Experience, the presenter used her phone in order to scan a sand castle. Now, the application itself doesn’t take a regular picture of the object in front of the lens but actually creates a three-dimensional representation of it.
The scan is then saved as a regular jpeg or png. But wait! There’s even more to come.
To demonstrate the capabilities of 3D Paint, the presenter showed how picture cropping works in the new environment. The host used two templates: a sunny beach and a picture of her two daughters.
The main issue of putting people in other pictures is the photo’s background. Using tools like Adobe Photoshop, you can wish away the background, leaving you with people only. However, this takes some Photoshop knowledge.
But, as the presenter explained, the improved Paint application automatically eliminates the background leaving you with a clear picture. So, all you need to do now is to transfer the silhouettes to the new background.
Unhappy with the perspective? No problem, because you can use your smartpen or mouse in order to change the perspective. Switch between aerial view, lateral or down below perspectives. This way you’ll be able to adjust the picture’s elements as to make it look more natural.
You can also import other graphical elements such as sign posts, toys or gadgets and add them to your collage using the same method.
Unfortunately, you will have to wait a while before you can use 3D Paint. According to the tech company, the Creator’s Edition is still in the beta phase. If everything goes according to plan, the Windows 10 Creator’s Update will be released at the beginning of 2017.
