Please purchase to remove watermark if you like Paint X.

Paint X is a classic painting application to draw, color, and edit pictures. You can use Paint X like a digital sketchpad to make simple pictures, creative projects, or to add text and designs to other pictures, such as those taken with your digital camera.

This tried-and-true program is easier to use and fun, too. The realistic digital "brushes" will bring your pictures to life in shades of watercolor, crayon, and calligraphy. And the ribbon—the strip across the top of the window that shows what a program can do—displays choices out in the open rather than in menus.

• Pencil tool, Eraser tool, Airbrush tool, Fill tool, Text tool, Color picker tool, Rectangle selection tool, Free-form selection tool
• Over 150 built-in paintbrushes: DNA brush, Calligraphy brush, Blur brush, Ink brush and so on
• 25 ready-made shapes: Line, Curve, Oval, Five-point star, Heart, Cloud, Smile and so on

Drawing functionality:
• Rotate/Resize shapes or selection freely
• Flip the image horizontal/vertical
• Crop image by selection
• Paint with a transparency color anywhere
• Stroke/Fill shapes with respective colors

Not Bad.

It’s alright, I guess. It’s a fairly primitive image editing tool, because of that, I recommend using it for minor editing, simple pictures, etc. The closest thing I can compare this to would be MSPaint. Certain things are slightly better while other things are slightly worse when compared to MSPaint. The drawing tools don’t have as much customization, although it does have antialiasing. One of the main problems with MSPaint is that most drawing tools lacked antialiasing. I’m currently working on sprite artwork, though, so I’d really like an option to disable it. Oh, and I’ve been having an annoying problem. When you use the pencil tool, it colors it unevenly. The colors are slightly off and since I’m working on sprite artwork, this is a pretty bad problem. The only way around this problem is to color only one pixel at a time which is pretty tedious. Since this is the lite version, it leaves a watermark that says “Created by Paint X” at the bottom of every picture you edit.

Love this app!!!

This is a great app for anyone who is looking for a free photoshop app. I wanted to take one photo, delete the background of the photo and then paste it onto another one and it turned out great!!! It took me a couple tries to figure out how to do exactly what I wanted to, but eventually I got the hang of it. The features and tools are very easy to comprehend you just need to figure out what order to use them in to get the product you are looking for. Could use a selection tool in the form of a circle instead I had to free hand select it but otherwise a great tool. I highly recommend this app to anyone who is even remotely considering it.

Has potential

First, I’ll say that I do appreciate a free version app with certain benefits, for not being an artist by any means but provides enough tools to make a picture.I would rate 5, but it does lack more shapes, plus I certainly could use a magic wand and smug toggle. Also, I have to edit out your logo from my finished product. As a writer illustrating my own pictures for my finished short story, there are plans of creating my creativity, I do not require your logo.

So may I inquire what more the app offers when upgrading to a full version? The removal of your logo?
