Soggy Waffles Releases Paintbrush 1.0

Soggy Waffles released version 1.0 of Paintbrush on Thursday. Paintbrush is a Cocoa-based program similar to Microsoft Paint and the defunct MacPaint.

The SourceForge Projectis goal has been to "recreate the basic functionality of Microsoft Paint, which has been noticeably absent from Mac OS X for years. Paintbrush can open and save to most major image formats, including BMP, PNG, JPEG, and GIF," according to the Website.

However, Paintbrush is not intended to replace high-end image editors. Itis a basic, streamlined editor for those who just want to doodle.

New features in the release version include:

  • Saves as PNG by default instead of BMP
  • Holding shift while using shape tool results in perfect square/circle/lines
  • Undo/redo works with cut and paste
  • Keyboard shortcuts for zoom in/out/actual added

Paintbrush 1.0 requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later. It has not been fully tested on current versions of Leopard. Paintbrush is free.
