    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.

    Not sure if you looked at it yet, but a program Pixelmator might be what you are looking for:

    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,

    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
