    Hello,

    I used to be a PC user for a LONG time.
    I have switched to Mac a little while ago.

    I used MS PHOTODRAW (discontinued) as I would import and retouch paintings in turn that I would turn into a graphic novel.
    Now, of course, I cannot use it (unless I would use WINE but, not interested - too complicated). Photoshop is too complicated - it doesn't have the features that I need, or maybe it's not enough simplified for me.

    My QUESTION IS, can you people brainstorm this for me - I have have been looking on the net for 3 days - I need a VIABLE option for Photodraw. I need something not too complicated (but, please...NO paintbrush) but that will have features where I can tell it the size of my canvas, edit, etc...

    I would be VERY grateful for any insight and all suggestions will be followed up - thank you very much.

    P!erre!

    Not sure if you looked at it yet, but a program Pixelmator might be what you are looking for: http://www.pixelmator.com

    Hello Taz Mangus,

    First things first - thank you VERY much for replying.
    ...and...if anyone else has comments, suggestions - PLEASE join in!
    I will be looking into that program you are suggesting.
    I need to evaluate the potential X the time it might take me to learn how to use.
    I need to know if there are help tutorials and how accessible they are in terms of user-friendly-learning.
    I don't need to become a pro at using a program - I need a program that will help me continue working.

    Thanks again,

    P!erre!

    Pixelmator has come great tutorials. If you search their YT channel for what you want to do, chances are they have a walk thru for it.

    Thanks VERY much Weaselboy!
    Am currently trying to download a demo.
    Mac Yosemite is updating - wouldn't take the demo...hope this works afterwards (sometimes Mac won't open programs if they are not from Applestore).
    Here's a page of some of my work. Most of it is painted but some parts - some effects done with MS Photodraw. Michelle Forbes page 1.jpg
