The best-known graphics painting app ! Now on the Mac App Store !!!

Paint X is a classic painting application to draw, color, or edit pictures. You can use Paint X like a digital sketchpad to make simple pictures, creative projects, or to add text and designs to other pictures, such as those taken with your digital camera.

This tried-and-true program is easier to use—and fun, too. The realistic digital "brushes" will bring your pictures to life in shades of watercolor, crayon, and calligraphy. And the ribbon—the strip across the top of the window that shows what a program can do—displays choices out in the open rather than in menus.

Efficient tools:
• Pencil tool, Eraser tool, Airbrush tool, Fill tool, Text tool, Color picker tool, Rectangle selection tool, Free-form selection tool
• Over 150 built-in paintbrushes: DNA brush, Calligraphy brush, Blur brush, Ink brush and so on
• 25 ready-made shapes: Line, Curve, Oval, Five-point star, Heart, Cloud, Smile and so on

Drawing functionality:
• Rotate/Resize shapes or selection freely
• Flip the image horizontal/vertical
• Crop image by selection
• Paint with a transparency color anywhere
• Stroke/Fill shapes with respective colors
• Select the most recently used colors from the builtin colorpanel
• Cut/Copy/Paste
• Paste from an image file

Other features:
• Canvas/image size is adjustable
• Support Drag and drop operation
• Support Zoom In/Out feature
• The maximum undo/redo times is adjustable
• Support multiple image windows opened at the same time
• Support printing
• Support file formats: png, tiff, bmp, jpeg, gif

and much more ...

Take your time and enjoy it!

Not worth the money - This app does not even allow you to use the tools depicted in the UI. I cannot even get the cropping tool to work, it is grayed out as are a few others. Weak sauce guys. :(

Wonderful again too - I have to second gamefowl’s review almost exactly. I have been looking for something for the Mac pretty much just like MS Paint, forever it seems, without any luck until now. I have other graphics programs that I do other things on but MS Paint, simple as it is, is necessary for me to do certain things. So, if you have been or are looking for something very close to MS Paint for the Mac this, Paint X, is it. Now if I can just find something just like Irfanview for the Mac I will be very happy indeed.

Review by Jimi Michiel

Finally, a Mac alternative to MS Paint! - I wonder how many Windows users are stuck with Microsoft just becasue of MS Paint? I’ve been looking for a Mac alternative for a while and this seems to be it! Not as feature rich as Photoshop, but Paint X does the job the types of basic editing I need on a day-to-day basis for presentations, poster- and handout-creation, etc. Thanks for a really great tool, totally worth the upgrade from the free version!

Great features, useless. - Freezes everytime I’ve tried to save. Features are great, would be nice to be able to save the photos. Multiple restarts to no avail.

Review by Thereakcheesers

Awesome - I’ve been consistingly using this app for about 3-4 years now, and it is awesome. Exactly what I needed and still need, which is namely messing up stupid memes and stuff. And making cool pictures. Very easy to use, and perfect for my little branch of trollics.
