MS Paint Is Staying – but Why Are You Still Using It?
When the Windows 10 Fall Creators Updated listed MS Paint as “deprecated”, fans of the program feared that it was a goner. After a massive outcry over the Internet, however, Microsoft quickly stepped into clarify that MS Paint is here to stay. The only difference is that it will now be available for free from the app store rather than be a default program in Windows.
Why People Love MS Paint
Even with the incorporation of Paint 3D in Windows 10, users do not generally love MS Paint because of the stunning graphics it produces. In fact, many of the graphics produced by MS paint look basic if not juvenile depending on the skill level of the designer.
People love MS Paint because of its simplicity. It having been around for 32 years may also have something to do with nostalgic users begging for it to stay.
Graphics: They’re More Important Than You Think
Visual content like graphics and quality designs have become increasingly important when marketing online. Not only are visual-based social networks like Instagram and Pinterest taking off, but having quality designs:
- Define your brand
- Set you apart from competitors in your industry
- Increase engagement and responses from your visitors and customers
It’s a well-known fact that content with high quality images receive more “Favorites”, get more clicks, and are retweeted far more often than content without images. Because content with images are more shareable, brands should also make an effort to go for high quality graphics since these graphics are part of what is representing you across the entire World Wide Web.
