The next Windows application with support for artificial intelligence functions promises to be the basic graphic editor Paint. Microsoft is studying the possibility of introducing an algorithm into the program that will allow creating images according to a text description, the resource reports. Windows Central citing their own sources.
According to the source, the image generator will be based on the same neural network that powers the Bing Image Creator platform – it creates images from text descriptions provided by users. The resource also published an internally proposed layout of the updated Paint interface with AI capabilities.
The graphic editor may have a Magic Paint button and a sidebar where the user can enter a description of the desired image. The image created by the generator can be transferred to the main work area and modified there as desired. But for now it’s just a mockup and it’s too early to tell how the feature will work in reality.
In addition, AI features could make their debut in other Windows applications: Photos, Camera, and Snipping Tool. The first will be able to identify people in the photo, cut them and paste them into other images. “Camera” and “Scissors”, in turn, will receive support for text recognition in photos and screenshots, which will greatly facilitate work with graphic sources. Microsoft has not yet officially confirmed these intentions.
