Either there are plenty of customers and the market is growing, or, it just doesn’t take much to create digital painting and drawing apps any more. Whichever it is, here’s yet another Mac drawing app that looks like MacPaint Meets the 21st Century.
Learn To Draw And Paint
This new generation of modern MacPaint like drawing and design applications have three things in common. First, they’re inexpensive yet capable.
Second, they all feature similar tools– shapes, text, lines, color palettes, brushes, and so on.
And, finally, they all seem to require a degree of artistic talent to create professional level images that impress.
Enter Paint Pro, which is what MacPaint would have been if it had a price tag and lived long enough to make it to the 21st century and OS X.
To be perfectly clear, Paint Pro isn’t really a professional level drawing and design app. It does some good things but it’s not by any stretch of the imagination Pixelmator, which is barely a few cups of coffee more.
The tools in Paint Pro are nothing special and mostly typical for inexpensive drawing apps.
It does support transparency and it can open and save the basic Mac and PC graphic formats– PNG, JPG, GIF, TIFF, and BMP.
Graphic designs can be copied and dropped into most Mac applications, including iWork’s Pages and Keynote, as well as Microsoft Office.
If you’re just getting started in graphic design, this is an inexpensive way to determine if you have the talent to proceed to the aforementioned Pixemator or Photoshop or any other design tool with more tools.
The only way you’ll create artistic graphic design masterpieces with Paint Pro is if you have plenty of talent and skills to start.
