Whether you are writing blogs or making videos on YouTube, it is important to make a thumbnail image that leaves and impact. However, we tend to think that we need expensive software to make these awesome images.

Making an image like the one above may seem like a difficult task, but today I would like to show how you can do this with a free software (Paint 3D):

Magic Select

Magic select is a way to select a specific area within the image to cut/copy/delete.

  1. From top left menu, select “Magic select”, and select area where the selection will occur. Press “Next”

2. From top right menu, select icon depending on whether you want to add/remove portions from selection. Selected area is normal color, unselected area is dark
  * ”Add” : Click to select areas to add to selection
  * ”Remove” : Click to select areas to remove from selection

3. After selection is finished, select “Done” from right menu. Now that the area is selected, it is possible to cut/copy the selection

4. By opening a new file, the selected image can be pasted

5. Image can be edited after being pasted. In the image below, the frisbee has been deleted afterwards

By using this method, it is possible to change backgrounds in pictures or combine images from different pictures

3D Object

It is well known that 2D objects can be made in Paint, but now in Paint 3D, 3D objects can be made

  1. By selecting “3D Object”, we see that several different shapes can be selected. In the example below, “hemisphere” is selected, and the color red is selected

2. By selecting the icon around the object, it is possible to rotate or move forward/backward

3. 3D Objects can be copied & pasted. The Object can be rotated and modified afterwards as well

4. By changing the position, the objects can be layered

5. 2D Object can be put on top of 3D Objects. In the example below, a star is used from 2D Objects

6. By positioning the 2D Object on 3D Object, the 2D Object will be deformed on 3D Object

7. The Object can be selected and moved

8. By pasting on different background, you can get an image like below


There are many other functions in Paint 3D. I will introduce them in following blog posts
