An amazing apps gets more amazing with each update! - Okay, I’m irked at the negative reviews that this app has gotten. This is easily the best image editing app that I’ve found for the Mac. It does absolutely everything that I’ve needed it to do. It has so many options available that sometimes it is hard to learn the full potential of this app. But If you’re considering buying one of those expensive major-band editing apps, I urge you to purchase this one and learn how to use it. Just some of the options included are the ability to edit at custom ppi resolution, select transparency fill-ins, grid editing and grid configuration options, selection rotation, re-coloring, adjust opacity, zooming, cropping, file duplication options, many text options including shadows… the list of options and features goes on… I don’t usually write such raving reviews, but I’m tired of the harsh judgments that this app has received. It’s really an amazing editing program!

Review by HollsBalls!!!

What’s the point? - I downloaded this for work. There was no point as it won’t let you use anything you make with it. You have to upgrade in order to copy a painted item into anything. The program works really well, BUT that is nothing if you can’t copy and paste from it or export. USELESS

Freeware is limited - I feel this app is a bit predatory, as the free version of the app forces a watermark on any image bigger than 800x800 pixels, but it doesn’t tell you this until you try to save it. Hope you didn’t put any significant work into it prior to that!

Awful - Absolutely cancerous trash. Never stops bothering me to upgrade and hassles any productivity in the ‘free’ version.

Review by kunphused

new born - I am no profesional and I can’t draw, however I have been in the TV and Film biz for many years as well as being a musician. This is a very fine program once you get the hang of it. It does not have any brush strokes or capability to mix colors. I have seen them in some older programs that were great. The program has never crashed and I have had hundreds of levels, changes and fixes. Your manual is very minimal but at least you have one. I've used it heavily the last two months and am very satisfied.

Review by Nick Nicky123

Helpful but have to be more beautiful - This app is very useful for me hence I’d like to draw some pictures when I have time. I used to do it on paper, but I got a very good experience on computer thourgh this app. It’s powerful, easy to use and the utilities are completed. However, it seems not very beautiful especially for a drawing app on a Mac. Sincerely wish the interface could be better.
