Early version of Microsoft’s redesigned Paint app for Windows 10 appears online

Close on the heels of recently leaked details on Microsoft's planned redesign of its famous Paint app for Windows 10, an early version of the overhauled Paint app has now appeared online, and can be downloaded by anyone.

Going by the indications from the early version of the new Paint app, and from Microsoft's launch video for the app, the completely overhauled version of Paint for Windows 10 has apparently been designed to be a Universal Windows app, boasting both pen- and touch- friendly features.

The launch video of the redesigned Paint app demonstrates all the new 3D objects support; with free-to-use 3D objects in the app's early version included in a community section and currently accessible only by Microsoft employees.

Along with including basic 3D shapes for Paint users to use freely, the overhauled Paint app also boasts the inclusion of a horde of 2D shapes and 2D freehand features.

Most of the basic features of the new Paint app are much easier to use with fingers, as compared to the previous version of Paint desktop app. Though the redesigned Paint app does not appear to include layering support, it enables users to effortlessly crop images, insert text, and annotate images with the help of a wide array of pencils and brushes.
