Hi, I'm looking for a simple app that allows me to draw on an existing image. I need it to cover parts of some screenshots.

Anything like that for free?

I've used Gimp, Seashore and more recently Pixelmator. While the first two are free and reasonably capable, I like the way Pixelmator works well enough and piad for it.

I use sketch which is free.
I tried it but it doesn't look even close to Paint.

Paintbrush is a free app that is very similar to MS Paint.

Sounds like you might be better served by a screenshot app like Skitch though.

I was looking for iPhone apps people. :D

Anyway, it turns out that Skitch has an iPhone version and it works very well. I'll stay with that for the moment.

However, I'd love to have a more powerful tool. Something that could really do what Paint actually does (for instance, loading multiple images in the same page). Is there an app that can do that?

You said Sketch at first, so I ended up downloading a completely different thing.

But yeah, Skitch is good enough and even includes an option to pixelate an image, which is always nicer than drawing thick black lines.

Thanks.
lol sorry about that!
