Paint 2 for Mac lets you create and edit all kinds of images quickly and easily through its streamlined interface and versatile toolset. While this isn't a replacement for professional-grade graphics tools, it offers superb functionality in an efficient package for everyday use.

Pros

Streamlined interface: Paint 2 for Mac's interface provides quick access to all essential tools without being cluttered with tons of buttons or menu options.

Easy editing and removal: As you add layers and new items to your image, each element will appear in a list in the panel on the left-hand side of the interface. To remove a particular element, all you have to do is find it in the list and select Delete from the right-click menu. When you select an item, it is highlighted in the main image as well, so you can be sure you're removing the right piece, and you don't have to go through multiple undos to get to it.

Cons

Bucket tool: Using the Bucket tool to fill in areas of an image works well for the most part, but it does tend to leave white areas in certain places, especially around the edges where it can mistake background grid lines for border lines. When this happens, you have to go back and fill in those spaces manually, which can be a bit tedious and time consuming.

Bottom Line

Paint 2 for Mac offers just about all of the photo editing features you will need on a regular basis.
