There could be a new feature for Microsoft’s Paint app in Windows 10 and 11 with the inclusion of AI-powered image generation through a “Cocreator” feature.

PhantomOcean3, a Windows enthusiast, posted via X that Microsoft plans to integrate an AI image generation feature called “Cocreator” into the Paint app. This feature is reportedly based on OpenAI’s DALL-E AI image generator. DALL-E is known for its ability to generate images from textual descriptions. Microsoft already uses DALL-E for its Bing Image Creator service in Bing Chat.


There’s anticipation that Microsoft will reveal more about its plans for AI features in Paint and other Windows 11 apps during an upcoming press event in New York City on September 21. This event may provide additional insights into the features and capabilities of Cocreator.

Earlier this week, it was announced that Canary and Dev Channels are getting ‘layers’ and ‘transparency,’ some Photoshop-esque features. Before this there were dark mode, centered canvas, background removal, and more in a span of a month. It makes one believe that Microsoft is trying to improve its core Windows apps more frequently. This is good, as users can expect to see new features and bug fixes more often.
