Microsoft Paint is one of the most popular Windows programs. The graphics software is also supposed to be preinstalled in the new Windows 11. A picture now also shows the possible new design of the program.
In the upcoming Windows 11, users can expect many design changes in various apps. Now Microsoft has published images of the appearance of the popular programs Paint and the Photos app. This is reported by various specialized media.
Microsoft has published the images on the photo platform Unsplash. These are presumably mock-ups, i.e. not the final version of the design. However, the pictures suggest what users can expect.
This is how the apps could look
Paint has been part of Windows since 1985. The interface of the revamped Paint is similar to the current version in Windows 10, but the look is adapted to the rounder design language of Windows 11. For example, the “colors” are round instead of square.
The design also seems rounder in the Photos app. In addition, controls for editing images will be placed above the photo, as one photo shows.
