Channel Your Inner Artist With Latest Windows 10 Preview


Windows 10 Insiders on the Fast track can now tap into a handful of new features, including the ability to draw directly on photos.

The latest preview version of the OS includes an updated Photos app that can "harness the power of Windows Ink," Microsoft said. Import an image, tap the Draw option to summon the Windows Ink toolbar, choose a pen, pencil, or the new calligraphy pen, and get creative.

"Add funny comments or accessorize your friends—the sky's the limit," Dona Sarkar, software engineer with the Windows and Devices Group, wrote in a blog post. Once finished, press save and the ink will "dry," becoming part of the photo. You can also replay your drawing and share it as a still image or video.

There's also an updated cropping experience and "a whole slew of new filters," according to Sarkar, who encouraged users to share their finished pictures on social media via @windowsinsider.

Other PC-based Ink improvements include the addition of pen drop-downs, making it easier to change color and width at the same time. And Microsoft introduced Stencils, which combines a protractor and compass for easy arc or circle drawing. This preview build also updates the ruler to include numerical values for simplified angle drawing.

The preview also adds a more familiar camera interface, featuring higher-contrast capture buttons, a photo timer, one-handed access to the camera roll, and more.

Finally, the Apple Live Photos-esque living images will be available on Surface Book, Surface Pro 4, Surface Pro 3, or Surface 3; just navigate to Settings and turn on Capture living images.
