Microsoft is today announcing a major update to its Paint 3D app in Windows 10. The company is introducing updates to the Magic Select feature, along with a new feature which a lot of classic Paint users will love.

The improved Magic Select feature will help users be a bit more creative. Users can now turn their magic selections into stickers and stamp them onto 3D objects in Paint 3D, and more:

“You can even turn the flat picture into a sticker or wrap it onto a 3D object. As of today, you can now magic select content directly into a scene, even after the scene has been partially composed so there is no need to move the object off canvas first.”

Microsoft is also bringing all the lines and curves that are available on the classic Paint to Paint 3D. Users can control the size of the lines, and they can also configure the curves as they wish. The company is also adding support for GLB which is apparently a “new industry-wide open standard” for 3D file sharing. Microsoft noted in a blog post that support for GLB will enable faster transfer of 3D assets and make smaller files in terms of their size.
