Using Windows 11 Paint to Generate AI Images Just Got Easier: Here’s How to Use the Cocreator Feature

In the 2023 update for Windows 11 (not the super technical 23H2 one), Microsoft is putting smart features and tools into many of the basic apps. Microsoft introduced an AI helper called AI Copilot, which seamlessly integrates with the operating system. There’s also a tool in Paint that can easily remove backgrounds from pictures, and it does a pretty good job. Furthermore, Microsoft has added a new feature to enable the creation of AI images within the Windows 11 Paint app.

Microsoft calls this feature “Cocreator,” and it uses OpenAI’s DALL-E model. With these new features and support for layers, the Paint app now has a lot of cool stuff. If you want to try using Cocreator to create AI images in Paint, just follow this guide.

Windows 11 Cocreator is Now Available to Windows Insiders

You can only use the Cocreator feature to make AI images in Windows 11 Paint if you’re a Windows Insider using Dev Build 23560 or a newer version. It’s also only available in certain countries like the United States, UK, France, Australia, Canada, Italy, and Germany, but only for people who use English in the app. To get access, you’ll need to join a waitlist, and once your account gets approved, you can start using Cocreator. Microsoft plans to make this feature available to all users in the coming months.
