Mac users in search of a simple drawing app now have an appealing option in a polished but low cost newly launched program called Patina. Patina echoes the simplicity of Microsoft Paint, the widely used go-to drawing tool for generations of Windows users, and goes further with a more visually appealing interface and additional functionality.
Patina sports a modern and slick appearance, with large tool buttons and color controls. Although more stylish in appearance than Paint, Patina shares the simple feel of Microsoft’s popular app. Basic operations, such as drawing and manipulating shapes, setting and changing colors, moving and resizing objects, and doing annotations, are all very straightforward.

Patina’s functionality surpasses that of Paint in a number of ways. For example, objects can be rotated at any angle rather than being limited to specific degrees of rotation. Other enhanced features include transparent image saving and a convenient slider for controlling a variety of app functions, such as tool stroke thickness and text font size.
