Paintbrush is a basic image editor that even kids will find easy to use. If you love to doodle without the hassle of learning how to use a design app, Paintbrush is ideal.
Extremely easy to use
Paint follows a simple pick-up-and-paint format that is easy to learn with just a little perseverance. Paintbrush is therefore an extremely simple app – don’t make the mistake of thinking it’s a photo editor or replacement for an image editor like Photoshop. You've got a toolbox which allows you to use a paintbrush, rubber, color palette, area selector and little more than that.
Suitable for simple doodling
In other words, Paintbrush won't appeal to any serious artist but it could be useful to keep your kids happy for a while or simply if you want to doodle a few minutes away. You can save your Paintbrush masterpieces in most major formats, although you can only select one default save format (.PNG). It's not easy to paint on Paintbrush when using a mouse, however; the app should support the addition of a light-pen and pad to make it more usable.
A fun painting app for everyone
Simple to use and easy to get going, Paintbrush is the blank canvas that will take you back to kindergarten.
