I'm using a Mac Mini does that come with a editing program that simple as MS PAINT?
Try the paint function in ApplewWorks. It has been a long time since I used it, but I think it is similar to PaintBrush from the windows world.
Is PaintBrush just called Paint now, or am I talking about a completely different program?
Thanks, that was exactly what I needed!!
Also look for Graphic Converter in your Applications folder.... thats a GREAT program but a bit odd if you try to go from Photoshop to it. Not bad, just a bit odd.
To answer your question, it's been "Microsoft Paint" for around ten years now, I think. PaintBrush. Wow, that brings back some memories.
If you find appleworks doesn't do all you want, Seashore is an open source image editor thats based on GIMP technology that I've recently found out about. It falls between Paint and Photoshop for functionality (can do more than Paint, but not as much as Photoshop). It is under development, but I've yet to have it crash on me (touch wood).
If you are running Tiger, another option could be Stone Design's iMaginator. I'm not exactly sure what it is but it seems to be an image editing app with direct ties to Core Image.
Making small images? Use Pixen...
If you make small images on a regular basis, especially if you're a game developer like me, you'll appreciate Pixen. It's a pixel-level image editor.
Lots of free/open stuff here.
HyperJeff- This link refines the search to OSX Apps, for Graphics, that are Freeware or Open Source licences. Search around here.
Thanks to all thoes that provided links above. Though I didn't start the thread, I am looking at thoes applications now.
Talking of which, I see that there is a mac version of The GIMP available. Anyone have any experience with this.
More things to ask as I'm *very* tempted to get an iMac and make the switch from windows!
