Want Microsoft Paint for Mac OS X? Paintbrush is Equivalent!
Many of us who converted from a Windows PC to a Mac may long for the amazing artistic capabilities allowed within Microsoft Paint. Ok so maybe that’s a bit dramatic, and we all know that Microsoft Paint is pretty crappy in a weirdly lovable way, but that’s also why it was fun. So, if you came to the Mac you may miss mspaint, right?
I do, I want MS Paint on my Mac, and I found the equivalent with a free app called Paintbrush. And it wasn’t just me, because the good developers in the open source community saw this available niche and went to action, creating Paintbrush, a uniquely Mac OS X clone of a Microsoft Paint-type application. The features are exactly as basic as you’d expect, this is truly the closest thing to MS Paint for Mac that you’ll find.
