    Specs:
    White Macbook, 2.16GHz Core 2 Duo, 2GB RAM
    Photoshop, but it's not free, and probably more complicated than you need.

    I searched around the internet, and found some stuff:

    - Try the paint function in AppleWorks.
    - Graphic Converter in your Applications folder.
    - Seashore

    Lots of graphics-related programs are listed here.

    Agreed. ArtRage is comparable in terms of features. In addition, this topic has been covered many times in my short tenure here. Even the most rudimentary of searches should uncover some useful suggestions.

    Photoshop, and to some extent, The Gimp are probably way overkill for what you need if you found MS Paint to be sufficient.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Try www.eazydraw.com that has a free edition so you can try it. The website will give you all the info you need about it.

    It can be pretty sophisticated or very simple, whichever you choose. You get the basics for free though.

    Good luck!
