I thought I'd give this a try as a quick alternative to Photoshop, but to my amazement I discovered that it won't open PNG files.

This issue has been fixed with 1.0b2. Now Red Pill opens tiff, jpg, png and psd.

"Not a fool" but obviously a true a*hole. Keep your frustrated self for the big Corporate World dimwit ! Instead of attacking a little developer with your complete nonsense !

This silly product is for Snow-Leopard only. Too bad if one hasn't chosen to upgrade from Leopard as yet.

Did you even bother to read the system requirements or go to their site? It says "Requires at least Mac OS X 10.5." which I believe is Leopard.

You aren't too smart are you, Hussain ? I am well aware of the fact that Mac OSX 10.5 is Leopard. My operating system is, in fact, Mac OSX 10.5.8, which is Leopard - but NOT Snow Leopard. The point I was making - which obviously escaped you totally - is that Red Pill does NOT work with Leopard, despite what its developer may state. When downloaded, installed and launched, Red Pill refuses to launch and an error message appears stating that it only works with Snow Leopard.

Sorry for the inconvenience. Now Red Pill should work with Leopard.

NO !! Red Pill Still does NOT work at all on my version of Leopard. On the contrary, when I double-click on the application icon absolutely NOTHING whatsoever happens. It does not launch, does not give any error message, does not bounce in the dock even !! Just sits there idly and contemplates its navel.

Eagle, you are truly a jerk. Try to make more constructive (and less personal) comments next time.

Thought I was going to see a new version of the 64-bit Matrix screen saver.

I downloaded Red Pill, but I can't open it at all, I have iMac G5 on OS X,
All it does, is it bounce on the dock,

I think that this developer is onto something important here: ten basic tools, and sliders for view zooming & brush size.
It seems that there are many image editors with lots of features, but VERY few with just the tools that folks like me (and other seniors, perhaps) with basic skills can use with speed and satisfaction.
The ability to preview the brush size (for instance in the clone tool) before selection will be a welcome feature at some point; but, though it's clearly still in development, I look forward to owning Red Pill when it's rolled out the factory doors.
Well done, Jakob; 5 stars for the great idea!

Just a note to remind you that there are also some basic editing tools in Preview, which is supplied with every Mac. They even work on Raw files.
