Microsoft Paint 3D is a specialized graphic editor that first appeared in one of the updates for Windows 10. The program is developed by Microsoft's London division and includes a full set of features from the classic Paint and the 3D Builder tool, which is aimed at creating three-dimensional models of various complexities.
Paint 3D has its own library of models, but for most users, working with raster graphics is more in demand. The most popular feature among ordinary users is removing the background from various images. Let's see how to make the background transparent in Paint 3D and what is required for this.
