    paint equivelent on osx
    Hi,
    Does anyone know which program I should use
    to draw stuff on OSX?
    I've been using paint on windows but i can't find
    a similar program on my OSX panther.
    I have a eMac, 1GB with 512ram

    Is there any built in program?
    Because I can't install stuff, it's on a network in my office.

    They should but in a controlled environment some admin jobsworth could very well have deleted it from the machines.

    No:

    The "pro" (Powerbook, Powermac) machines never came with it and it doesn't come with any intel based macs.

    They bundle test versions of MS Office & iWork instead.

    Yes, you will need X11

    i liked it. It doesnt stand up to photoshop. but it can open .psd, but more nicely, if you like it on your mac, itll run on ANYTHING

    its M$ paint x 100
