The best free graphic editor.

5.0 8 months ago

Comments: I am very pleased with working with Pant3D. The projects I carry out using this tool are usually less demanding, but this tool is perfect for them. It contains what is needed without unnecessary additions. A perfect tool for beginners and those just taking their first steps in working with graphics.

Pros:

A major advantage of Paint3D is its integration with Windows and the fact that it is available in the operating system. Thanks to this, I do not have to look for graphic programs on the Internet. Using the program is very simple and intuitive and does not require any experience. Moreover, the program itself allows you to create simple but professional graphics that can then be used in publications or on websites.

Cons:

Sometimes Paint3D is not enough to perform more complex operations. For example, it is not possible to cut out the background or correct the image. AI tools are also becoming common, making work much easier and unfortunately still missing in Paint3D.

Alternatives Considered:

It has a large range of tools and features, allowing me to construct whatever I can think of.

5.0 last year

Comments: I don't have to pay anything to use Paint 3D because it's a free program.

Pros:

Even for those who have never used a digital art program before, Paint 3D is incredibly simple to use. I can get started right away because to the user-friendly design and the abundance of free training.From straightforward drawings to intricate 3D models, Paint 3D may be utilized for a wide range of applications.

Cons:

Not all of the functions found in more advanced 3D modeling software are present in Paint 3D. For instance, it lacks an integrated physics engine and a means of producing animations. Other 3D modeling software, such Blender or Autodesk Maya, is more powerful than Paint 3D. You might want to think about using a different application if you need to construct intricate 3D models.

Quite impressive for what it is!

2.0 4 weeks ago New

Comments: Great, especially in pair with a Surface laptop, an easier solution for those who can't be bothered by learning Blender or other 3D tools, which can be more intimidating

Pros:

The name might be misleading, but this isn't old junky and somewhat nostalgic Microsoft Paint; nonetheless, it still works somewhat in terms of 2D capabilities, I would say the proposal here is much bigger

Cons:

No straight-forward correction features or AI integration for image manipulation

David's Paint 3D Review

5.0 3 months ago

Comments: For simple image creation and editing, Paint 3D works great, is a very easy to import images and easily add other cliparts to the image.

Pros:

Paint is free to use and comes preinstalled on windows 10 and can be installed from the Microsoft store for free on windows 11.

Cons:

Paint only works on windows and does not support Linux and MacOs.

Fun tool

4.0 2 years ago

Comments: I have made business cards with Paint 3D and use it to sketch ideas. I attempted to use it for some of my more creative photography but wasn't happy with the results and did not publish.
I chose "Fun tool" as my review title because it is fun and entertaining but falls short of being a professional tool in most cases. Without a touchscreen device and pen even the most talented artist would struggle to create anything of quality.

Pros:

The nice thing about Paint 3D is that it came ready to use on my PC. Easiest setup ever. Draw with pen, pencil, crayon, brush, and so on. Change the color, texture, and shape as desired. Choose 3D shapes and models from a categorized library and create your own 3D images. Layer objects or photos and adjust Z axis positioning. No data/wifi connection required and no bugs or quirks.

Cons:

The faunts are very limited and I haven't found a way to import more. Some of the 3D images aren't very realistic, all of the libraries need to be updated. Other than adding to a photo there's not a lot of photo editing capability. Nothing from paint 3D makes me want to say "oh wow!".
