Paintbrush: for Mac users suffering MS Paint withdrawal August 4, 2008

Only in the the last few years have I used a Mac as my primary computer.  I still consider myself very tech agnostic though, and still use Windows with regularity and Linux every now and then.  One of the programs I found myself missing the most when I moved to Mac OS X (besides Minesweeper) was MS Paint.  OS X lacks a stupid-simple image editor/basic drawing tool.  That’s why I was so glad when I found Paintbrush.

The user interface of Paintbrush is very similar to Paint and for the most part gives you the same functionality.  For those of you looking for a simple, lightweight image/drawing tool for Macs, Paintbrush is well worth the download.

Any idea how to change the “canvas size” (as it was called in MS Paint)?

Thanks for visiting the site.

As far as I know, there is no way to change the canvas size after initially selecting it. It is a bummer. I have already emailed the developer asking about this. Perhaps this feature will be included in a future version.

In the meantime, check out our new website, justplaintech.com.
