PaintDS is a full-featured bitmap/image editor for the Mac that is easy to use, but sufficiently powerful to handle most of your basic graphics needs. PaintDS is the perfect tool for creating simple images, cropping photographs, and other tasks similar to MSPaint for Microsoft™ Windows, or the now missing Apple™ MacPaint program.

PaintDS can handle graphics in PNG, JPG or BMP, GIF and TIFF formats. The current version of PaintDS is for Intel-based Macs only.
