Paintbrush, just like the paint application found on Windows, is a software for Mac that is used for illustrating and painting. You will find paintbrush very easy if you have worked with Paint on Windows. Paintbrush supports most picture formats including BMP, PNG, JPEG and GIF files. Paintbrush is very easy to install because of its lightweight features. The Paintbrush interface is very simple, and its menu comprises the most basic tools needed for you to create your own image. There are the basic tools that you can use to draw on the left and a menu bar at the dock on top. Paintbrush, again like Paint application found on Windows, includes a freehand art for you to naturally draw as well as some conventional handles for you to draw shapes. Even though it is not as useful as some other third party illustration software, Paintbrush can still serve as a versatile tool to create many basic illustrations.
Paintbrush is a cocoa based program which has all the same basic features as MacPaint and Paint on Windows. Although it is not as powerful as the retired MacPaint or other top illustrations apps, Paintbrush still provides the basic illustrations tools that a Mac user will need to carry out and explore his/her own creativity. Paintbrush provides Mac users with all the tools they will need to make simple images quickly; a development which has not been on Mac for some years now. Also, it is also good at manipulating screenshots and editing the areas to suit the user’s need.
Paintbrush is easy to use even for a no-brainer and still an asset for professionals that are looking for an app that will give them all the tools they need to create a perfect image. And not forgetting the fact that it has both features of Paint in Windows and MacPaint that is no more present in Mac OS X. Professionals will find it appealing and handy to use. Paintbrush is a great tool and its useful for all your basic image editing works. If you are looking for an image editing app that can offer everything that MacPaint offered, then I will strongly recommend that you go for Paintbrush.
