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.

Features:
  • Full Image or Selected Area Rotation
  • User defined Gradient

What an awful image editing app. It lacks basic stuff like undo, layers, metadata, .. ...
Loading bigger files is painfull slow too.

Even for free I cannot recommend this.

If you really need a MSPaint-a-like app, I suggest looking at Paint Pad- cheaper and way better.

Just a comment about the two positive reviews below: looking at the profiles of "Graphicguy" and "Monsuelo", they created their MacUpdate account the same day they wrote their reviews and almost never visited ever since. I don't know, but that seems a bit suspicious to me.

Of course, it is entirely possible that these are two guys coming from the PC/Windows-platform and, the only app they ever found for the Mac was PaintDS – and then they were excited about it…

I was not too crazy about this. I just downloaded the demo to try a little doodling, and this app was not very responsive at all. The interface just doesn't feel right for a Mac app, either; it feels Linuxy, and this isn't a compliment. (Of course, the average Linux app does have an advantage over PaintDS in that you don't have to plonk down $15 for a crappy piece of software.) Definitely not going to buy this one.

I too came from a WIndows environment, and find PAINTDS to not only be for the most part intuitive, but much more powerful that MSPAINT was.

For those that are complaining about paying for it... Geez guys, its only $15! Do you expect decent software for free? I'd have paid $40 for it... I haven't found another program that comes close.

The only other one was something called PAINTBRUSH, but its so full of bugs it is not even usable, plus hasn't been updated in over a year

LOL @ giving this software a low rating because its not free. Not everyone has money issues.

Coming from a Pc environment and used to MSPaint's simplicity this software is a GEM. Tried some of the other "FREE" ones, and this one is awesome.

btw, I know Photoshop inside and out, but for quick stuff Microsoft paint ruled. Now with this PaintDS, not too sure.

This must be the most lame image editor ever. Asking money for this is a crime.
Paying for it is stupid.
There are tons of free and much much better alternatives.

Avoid as hell
