    Hey everyone,

    I am looking for a good graphics App? I am a little dissapointed that Apple does not equip their computers with some default program like Winodws Paint or Draw. Anyways, I have heard of Gimp and Seashore. Do either of those require payment or are they free?

    Any other recommendations?

    Seashore is free (it's open source), and it is better than MS Paint too!

    I wouldn't recommend GIMP that is more like Photoshop.

    isnt seashore just a cocoa GIMP? GIMP is a nice free alternative to Photoshop but it needs Apple's X11. You may wanna look into GIMPshop, it is some additions to GIMP to make it look like Photoshop

    Yes.

    Remember:
    Seashore == MS Paint,

    GIMP == Photoshop

    and the OP wants an MS Paint equivalent program ;).

    It is for some Mac buyers. For those who didn't get it bundled with their new Macs, GraphicConverter is fully-functional even if they don't pay the shareware fee. Paying the fee removes the launch delay.

    Seashore sounds like a good suggestion for a basic graphic design application.

    Avoid Gimp. It's hard to use, even for this Photoshop professional. Instead, take a look at Lineform by Freeverse (www.freeverse.com/lineform/). It's not a photo editing application like Photoshop, but more of a drawing app and quite powerful.
