A painting tool for Mac OS X much like the old MacPaint. From the author's website:

When Apple released the original Macintosh in 1984, they included two applications: MacWrite and MacPaint. Twenty-five years later, every Mac still includes a basic text editor in TextEdit, but a simple paint program is a thing of the past.

Enter Paintbrush.

Paintbrush can open and save to most major image formats, including BMP, PNG, JPEG, TIFF, and GIF. Full support for transparency is available for image formats that support an alpha channel (currently PNGs and GIFs). You can also paste images copied from many common Mac applications, including Microsoft Office and Apple iWork.


Oh, and did we mention that Paintbrush has always been, and will always be, completely free? (That’s both free as in gratis and free as in libre: the full source is distributed under an open-source license.)

Download #1 is version 1.2, the final Tiger-compatible version.
Download #2 is version 2.1.2, the final Leopard-compatible version.
