Microsoft has added a new slider to the Pencil, Brushes, and Eraser tools in Paint

Microsoft has added a new slider to adjust the size of pencils, brushes, and eraser in the Paint image editor. It will allow you to choose a custom tool size, just like in advanced editors like Photoshop.

The selected size can be previewed on the canvas while dragging the slider that will appear on the left side of the screen.

The option is still being tested among some insiders on the Canary and Dev channels.

Also, Paint has added a background option to the “Layers” panel. With this option, you can set the background color of the canvas. To use the option, open the Layers panel, click the Background tile at the bottom, or use Ctrl+Shift+B. Then the color selection dialog will open. Among other things, there is the Hide Background option to make it completely transparent, and the Ctrl+Shift+H key combination to quickly show/hide the background.

Finally, the editor has a copy method: “Copy visible layers”. This allows you to copy all visible content between layers. To use the option, you need to select the area with the selection tool and call the context menu, or use the keys Ctrl + Shift + C. The combination Ctrl + C will allow you to copy the visible content only from the current layer.

It was previously reported that Microsoft will introduce even more new features to Paint, including a redesigned brush setting.
