Paintbrush- Paint the Mac way

I’ve always felt that Mac could use a software like Microsoft’s Paint program, and now, we have one. Paintbrush!

Get Paintbrush here.

    Nifty. This beats the pants off firing up X11 and the GIMP for simple tasks. Thanks!

    You are right! And thanks for bringing that up, looks like Apple reorganized the 3rd party apps, therefore changing the links! Now, it should work fine 🙂

    Too bad it’s lacking a little….
    I can’t change brush shapes, and there is no spray paint can 😦

    Great but the diagonal line needs refining, in MS Paint it stays the same width as a vertical line but here it is much fatter. Other wise great!!!

    I dont like it all that well you cannot place the text wherever you want it! It just keeps repeating…

    this sucks… why cant you crop out images like you can on microsofts

    That’s because it’s not Microsoft’s Paint. Forget that, get skitch, very nifty!

    Paint brush sucks ass I can’t even change the size of an image, honestly it can’t even handle simple tasks , and whats up with the no spray can . windows MS is the any way

    Paintbrush is handy however, there are many things which paintbrush is unable to do compared to MS paint, including, easy insert pics, change size and color of parts/whole document.
    And draging whithout background is not possible, cutting peaces is also very hard.

    Can somebody make a perfect clone or even better, an improved MS Paint for Mac??

    thanks!

    Paintbrush is a wreck. I can’t even cut out specific shapes, and laying text over an image is pretty annoyingly difficult.
