I prefered to use the program called MyBrushes to paint on Mac that works much like Microsoft Paint in Windows

sufferin' succotash, the guy below took the source code and, behold, released a fork that is exactly the same as paintbrush.

It's the best MS Paint clone for Mac OS X EVER! Now I can finally make Reddit "fffffffuuuuuuuuuuuu" comics on my Mac!!

basic layers support would be perfect. I know there is seashore but it doesn't manage curves well (I'm doing 1 pixel line-drawings), and graphic converter is nice but still doesn't manage layers. That said it's a well crafted app. I love the bomb and the extensible toolbar (ie:shapes tools) is a clever idea. Oh and patterns à la macpaint would be cool too :).

I second the patterns like MacPaint had request. Otherwise, this is a very nice little application.

This new version is perfect!

A complete paintbrush clone that works very well.

I especially like the new "place" text selection feature.

Not for pros obviously, but great for kids or just some doodles.

Serious Drawback

Although it saves PNG images, it doesn't save them transparent.

Hmm... Yeah that is true. Transparent .PNG's and layers would be great.

I think it takes a sense of humor to realize the value in this basic, wonderful drawing program. Does no more or less than it should!

A decent little app.
Doesn't do much; for more advanced drawing, people should download Seashore.

However, if you just want to make a quick sketch, it's perfect.

Simple and easy to use program. Free, and saves in multiple formats. Similar to Paint on Windows.
