Microsoft introduced support for removing backgrounds from images loaded in the default Windows image editor Paint. Today, the company has pushed out another feature to testers; this time, it is layer and transparency support.
Microsoft announced last month that it had plans to enhance the Paint and Photos app of Windows 11 with AI enhancements, and it seems that at least the background removal feature is one of the first ready for testing.
A blog post by Dave Grochocki, Principal Program Manager Lead Windows Inbox Apps confirms the introduction of layer and transparency support in Paint.
Paint version 11.2308.18.0 includes the new functionality. This new version is being rolled out to Windows Insiders of the Canary or Dev channels.
While officially limited to Insiders, any Windows 11 users who runs the latest stable version of the operating system may download and install the new Paint app from above.
