Since its inception, Mac has been the operating system of choice for creative enthusiasts and professionals around the globe. So it's no wonder that macOS is the primary destination for the best new drawing, painting, image and video editing, and sketching applications.

As mentioned above, beginning your journey with Preview will cover all your basic needs that Windows Paint used to do. To get a specific result, you can try apps with more to offer, such as Tayasui Sketches for painting or Capto for working on images.

Not everyone knows that Mac's default Preview application is not only an image viewer but also provides a basic painting and annotating toolkit that's just enough for it to be a decent substitute for Microsoft Paint for Mac. Here's how to access it.

A quick online survey/ search will tell you that the most effective painting apps or programs are for sale; for MS Paint, it's not. Since Microsoft is responsible for manufacturing the program, it comes as a default application for all Microsoft PC operating systems. This means that the app is available for free for Microsoft users.

The growth of technology has seen a significant rise in cybersecurity threats. Hackers can hack and gain access to your programs, holding them ransom until you meet whatever demands that they have.

You do not have to be a painting expert to use MS Paint. With basic knowledge, you can create your paintings and edit them, however you see fit without much difficulty. To use its advanced features, you need to explore all its features and dedicate more time to using the app. With the internet available to give you the information, you can be a pro-MS Paint user in no time.

Paintbrush is a simple paint program for OS X, reminiscent of Microsoft Paint and Apple's own now-defunct MacPaint. It provides users with a means to make simple images quickly, something which has been noticeably absent from the Mac for years.

Okay so all you do for insterting pictures is you open it in paintbrush. And then you select it with the selector. Then you cut/copy. Then you go to where you want to put the image and extend the selector box. Then you paste. Woo!!!

i have paintbrush, but it is nothing like paint. i use paint on my old pc for printing templates of things because you can set up what the print is going to look like. are you sure there is no other program that will do this like paint does?

This is pretty close to ms paint and it works pretty well. My only gripe is that there is no free form select tool within the app, the main reason why I have been downloading and trying many of the mac paint apps.

I was very disappointed when you highlight and image you cant stretch it buy selecting the corners. You can only move it around. so it makes it hard to make flyers or stretch an image to fill the screen or do photo shop things like stretch the skin so it covers up a pimples. You guys have left out the most creative part of windows paint please fix it.

When we got the first computer on our hands, as a kid, we were intrigued with MS paint. It was the one application that made us aware that digitally we could unleash our creativity. All of us, especially the 90s kids were a bit disheartened when we learned that Microsoft will stop supporting MS paint very soon, in order to promote Paint 3D, that comes with windows 10. Although Paint is still available in Windows, eventually Microsoft plans to remove it permanently and only keep it as a Windows store product for users who still wants to use MS Paint.

So when I first made the switch from Windows to macOS a few years back, one of the gripes I had and can imagine many other people having too is the absence of a stand-alone basic graphics or painting utility application. While Apple kind of pioneered such apps on personal computers with their Macintoshes shipping with MacPaint, the scenario has been quite different since the last 3 decades with MacPaint seeing its last release in 1988. Today we take a look at 5 different paint app for mac; whether you are someone who has been missing MS Paint on Mac OS or just looking for a basic painting app, this list is for you.

Unlike Preview, in this app, you can create a new document and this is the first thing you are greeted with, on opening the application and you can state the size of your canvas. It offers all the basic functionalities just as MS paint like a pencil, color fill, shapes, text, magnification, and also a color picker tool which comes in very handy. It also supports most image formats including JPEG, PNG, BMP, TIFF, and GIF.

Seashore is a free, open-source paint application for Mac OS built entirely in Cocoa. While the UI might seem a little dated, the app has a lot of tricks up its sleeves which makes it an upgrade to Preview or Paint Brush. SeaShore introduces the concept of layers, just like you have in Photoshop. The layers work like sheets of acetate stacked upon each other and the transparent areas allow you to see through to the underbidding layers. This allows you to create different layers for different effects and adjusting the effects separately or deleting them separately, thus providing easy management.

What makes Pixelmator stand out from all the other professional graphic utility apps, is its flexibility; while it does have a lot of features, one can also just use the brush or pencil tools to doodle anything just as they would in any other paint app. The app is not at all overwhelming even for a beginner and strikes a perfect balance between simplicity and productivity. If you do not mind spending $30, Pixelmator is a keeper.

Pixelmator is one heck of an app with all its features, but it is very flexible and you can use it as an MS paint replacement to a cheaper Photoshop alternative. And last but not least, if you need to use a lot of Windows apps, Wine is your best bet to get MS paint running on your Mac. So this was our list of Microsoft Paint for Mac. Which one do you use daily or did we miss yours? Let us know in the comments below.

I come from a windows background and am very familiar with the simple 'paint' application; I am searching for an equivalent app for my Mac. I have downloaded [free] 'paintbrush for Mac' from the internet but find that it does not have the tools which MS Paint has, and more importantly, I can work only with 2 colors...white an black. Can anyone point out to me any free download that allows me to work in color too?

Thanks for your reply. You have given the correct instruction as to how one can add color in paintbrush. However, I feel [I have not experimented fully yet with this] that it does not allow one to draw straight lines [shift>drag]. I have used Microsoft's Paint to draw diagrams to scale. If there are ways to get this feature of drawing straight lines in this app, please let me know.

Thanks a lot for your suggestion. I looked up the site you had referred. The features are to my need 'high-end'. I need something which allows very basic tools which a low end version of Microsoft's paint offers.

Why are you afraid of applications that use layers? Layers are one of the easier concepts of both drawing and painting apps to understand and use. Think of layers as multiple sheet of clear paper or thin sheets of clear plastic that you can draw or paint on. You can build up a drawing or painting by putting different elements on different layers. If you want to alter elements on a layer only that layer gets affected. If you don't alike what you did on a layer, you can erase an entire layer and start drawing or painting on that layer, again, or delete the layer entirely. You can, also, more easily move elements around on a layer more easily that having all the elements on a drawing or painting on one layer. 350c69d7ab
