Version 4 of this bit-map-based graphics program

Fractal Design’s Painter 4.0 is a bitmap-based graphics program, but it is very different from the market leaders such as Photoshop and Corel PhotoPaint. Where these programs concentrate on editing existing scanned images ready for output, Painter is more concerned with the origination of new artwork. Rather than with photo-editing applications, Painter has more in common with simple paint programs, such as Windows Paintbrush, where the user creates a blank canvas, selects a brush and starts painting.

That however is where the similarity stops...

Excellent! I’ve been looking for a good 2D paint program for my 500 mhz G3 iMac! Painter 4 reminds me of EA’s Deluxe Paint, which was a premier art package for the Commodore Amiga series of computers.
