Paintbrush

Version: 2.0.1 || Release Date: 2009-06-20 || License: GPL App Owner: hashir

Paintbrush is a Cocoa-based paint program for Mac OS X, similar to Microsoft Paint and the now-defunct MacPaint. The project's ultimate goal is to recreate the basic functionality of Microsoft Paint, which has been noticeably absent from Mac OS X for years. Paintbrush can open and save to most major image formats, including BMP, PNG, JPEG, and GIF.

Paintbrush is not yet full-featured, but is very stable and is being actively developed.

Excellent application. I use it a lot. As soon as they finish it I'd totally recommend it.

I want to suggest an even greater goal... recreating my favourite app of all time: Superpaint.
I've always dreamed of a day someone would recreate it, I can't figure out how people draw pictures on computers without it.

Wow! I've been waiting for something like this forever! I hope that the developer can fix some of the kinks in Paintbrush, though. For instance, I'm unable to use the "Selection" tool (the scissors icon). Also, scroll-wheel support for zooming would be nice.

But hey, it's looking promising so far!
