Good but needs update for HEIF files

Appreciate the app, it has saved me a few times such as adding eye catching titles and headings to Facebook event cover images for non-profit work/ social functions. My photo editing needs are pretty basic so I won't comment on the nuances of Paint S since it's pretty intuative and close enough to the Paint I grew up on since Windows 3.0.

Yes, HEIF is newer format (2017?) but since I'm using the paid version of Paint S for Mac and Mac has adopted a better photo format, then say JPEG because it's half the size for the same image quality, Paint S should be compatible with HEIF.

Please let me know if this is in the works, if I swtich to another image app to work directly with HEIF files, like many others, I probably won't be back. Thanks!

Great app - easy to use, but powerful as well

Really helped me because unlike other painting tools there's no learning curve, and you can understand how to use it right away. (I'm sure there are complicated features that can take some learning, but for the basic features, it's very intuitive and works easily without complications). One feature I like is that it remembers all the lines you drew, so you can reselect any of them, and then change its size, direction, color etc. - in other words, even if you have a lot of overlapping lines, each can still be selected and modified. This helps me a lot because I need to draw arrows on schematics, and as it remembers the lines I draw, I can reselect each line if I want to edit it later (no need to drag a box over the line, but merely select it from a list, which the app displays to the left of the main drawing window, and the app then selects the line in question within the drawing window).

Good in so many ways “We’re not building a piano here."

This a great app to create and tweak things with. You won’t get mired in a PS labyrinth of details and options when all you want to do is some quick and good graphics. Maybe it’s a PNG file with a transparent background, or a cool graphic with fonts have on your computer, but not your website platform - this is a good app to use when, as I like to say “We’re not building a piano here.”

Sometimes you just don’t need mulit-layered 3D WTFery or so many options that you get bogged down in the details versus actually getting work done. Cleaner graphics are the trending style, and this app is a good way to create exactly that.

Sure, you can build a piano with it if you want, but go play with Minecraft if that’s your thing, we’re trying to get stuff done here.
