Microsoft announced on the Windows Blog that it is releasing an experimental update to the Paint app for Windows Insiders that retouches the background of an image with one click. In a short example video, only a white area remains.
The button for the Background Removal tool is located in the Microsoft Paint toolbar to the right of the Selection tool, just below the Crop tool. After clicking on it, it automatically recognizes the motif and should be able to crop it cleanly.
Microsoft’s Windows Insider Program
The tool works either on the entire canvas or within a rectangle selection. Microsoft has not yet announced anything more about the new tool.
As part of the Windows Insider Program, Microsoft is making advance versions of Windows 11, so-called Windows Insider Preview Builds, available to the interested community. Members of this community can try out the update for Paint in the two test channels “Canary” and “Dev”.
MS Paint should be able to automatically crop motifs in the future.
So far there have been three update channels called Dev, Beta and Release Preview. Canary has been added since March. The channel has since taken over the previous tasks of the Dev Channel: It is supposed to deliver updates that contain new functions. Microsoft now calls the newly created Dev channel “Dev Rebooted”. The Dev channel contains builds for patch numbers 23000. Canary builds start at 25000 and Beta builds start at 22000. The Release Preview channel delivers Windows updates a few days before rollout.
Preview builds are unstable
Microsoft points out that the builds have not yet been intensively tested and there is a risk that the installation will go wrong and a reinstallation will be necessary. You should never install the preview builds on a productive system, but ideally in a virtual machine.
