How to insert an image in Paint 3D?

We all know in years past, Paint, was an application that will only allow us to edit photos, such as making cutouts or changing its color and shape, but this application has currently revolutionized the world of editions and now with our Windows 10 we can get what is called Paint 3D .


Now, to be able to insert an image in Paint 3, and be able to edit it , you have to open the application and go to the section that says select, after this you must select the image that you want to remove the background.

After you have selected the image, you should look at the toolbar at the top of the screen; and you are located in the canvas option.

Later, we observed that a toolbar appeared on the right side of the screen, where you must select the transparent canvas option.

How do you edit the background of an image from Paint 3D?

When you have already done the steps that I mentioned above , you can perform the following steps that we are going to mention below:



Crop the background of an image

After you have selected the transparent canvas option, at the top of the screen, you must locate yourself in the option where it says magic selection, in this way, Paint will focus on the figure that you want to cut.


This way you will be able to obtain your background image, yes, you must be very careful to select specifically what you want to crop, because if not, image fragments will appear that you do not want to appear in it, later when you have cropped the image , you will deactivate the option to show canvas, in this way the background of said image will be removed.

In turn, this also allows you to reduce or increase the size of the selected image, in this way you will have a unique and exclusive image of yours.


Change the color of the backgrounds

After you already have the cropped image, you must go to the option where it says insert, and select the background image that you want to appear in it.

Then you are going to locate where it says effects, and change the color of the background image, as well as the brightness of the image. After this, you can save or convert the image in the format you want, and in this way you will have the image saved on your device for when you are going to use or display it.

How to use an image as a new background for another?

To be able to use an image as a new background for the other, you have two options; One is to do it as I mentioned before, or the other is saving the edited image in PNG format; in this way it will be saved as a transparent background, later, you will have to enter Paint again and follow the instructions that I am going to comment below:

merge images

As we already learned in the previous step, in order to insert another image on top of the one we edited, you must go to the insert option, and then select the photo, what do you want to appear in the background. But if you don’t want to place a single image, but several, you will have to do this process until you get all the images you want to merge.

The other option would be to enter Paint and insert a background image and then go to the Stickers option , and insert the already edited image. In this way, you can also insert other images that have been edited in the same way; and you can create a function of them.

On the other hand, if you do not want to do this with Paint, but with other external applications,   you can do it through web pages , which in many cases have these functions paid for, others do not, but the important thing is that you will not have to install any application on your computer to be able to edit images.
