As you may know, Apple does not include a paint application in its popular desktop operating system. Because of this, many Microsoft Paint clones for OS X have been developed along the years and come in all shapes and sizes.

Paint FX is a basic paint application for Mac OS X which offers a diverse set of drawing tools as well as filters. With Paint FX, you can quickly paint a picture or correct photos without the need of an external application.

Among the features included with Paint FX are the tool panel, color picker, canvas and filters. The app comes with a resizable and straightforward canvas areas for drawing. The paint tools include a pen, eraser, brush, rectangle selector, line, circle, and more.

You can also type in text to your drawings or imported images. What’s more, Paint FX supports importing and editing multiple pictures at once. It also includes interesting effects that you can apply to images, such as sepia tone, inverse effects, sketch effects, black and white, and HDR.

From the Filters menu, you are given the freedom to access several filters for your images: pleasant glow, gloom, glass, crystallize, bump concave, bump convex, twirl, pinch, comic, color edfe, edge and sketch.

In a nutshell, Paint FX is definitely not a complex paint app / photo editor for professional use, but might come in handy to people who want a basic paint app that delivers something extra. Besides the paint tools, you can use various interesting photo effects and filters.
