*noobie mac user alert!*

Is there a program for Mac that is akin to the Microsoft program Paint? I just need to be able to whack together really simple stuff, which I used to do all the time in Paint, no worries.

Don't really want to fork out for a complex expensive thing either...

Thanks ;)

seashore is one, its an osx port of the infamous Gimp

http://seashore.sourceforge.net/download.php

alternatively there's Tux Paint http://www.tuxpaint.org/download/

otherwise, GraphicConverter (www.graphicconverter.net) which is payware (or free with all g4 powerbooks with it preinstalled)

lots of options :) good luck!

GraphicConverter is for me as it's already free for me :P

but if i didn't have it? I'd buy it. Otherwise its seashore for me


bear in mind, I'm not sure if they're universal (graphicconverter is at least)

Will have a look into it - I need to to do quick editing for work, so might be able to make them pay for it :D

cheaper than photoshop, if all you need is basic editing, have a good read on the site, you can download the manuals too from memory
