MS Paint style app for Macs based on MacPaint

MacPaint was Apple's original paint program for Macs and MacPaint X is a modification of it.

MacPaint X therefore contains many of the elements that made MacPaint popular i.e. ease of use and a simple palette based interface. Note that unfortunately, development of MacPaint X has discontinued and it will never come out of Beta. It also does not work on OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard or higher.

Main features of MacPaint X

MacPaint X offers all the tools you need to design your first raster graphics. It includes all the basic tools such as brush, eraser, line marker and a magnifying glass plus a rotation button to flip your images.

MacPaint X also includes a handy Undo button so that any mistakes can be immediately corrected. MacPaint X automatically saves your projects as you paint to ensure you don't lose your masterpieces.

Well organized interface

MacPaint X consists of three main floating windows:

- The first provides a customizable view of your creation- The second provides quick access to editing tools (the palette)- The third is used to undo actions, load or save a project

Compatible with many formats, MacPaint X is the ideal software for beginners in image editing. It's the closest thing to MS Paint since Paintbrush.

PROS

  • Easy to use
  • Similar to MS Paint
  • Supports lots of formats

CONS

  • Lacks advanced editing options
  • Beta may be unstable
