Patina® is the highest rated Microsoft® Paint replacement app in the Mac App Store.

Tools and color management in Patina are simple and intuitive.

You can use Patina to sketch an idea, draw a diagram, illustrate a concept, or paint a picture.

The screen shots here showcase the type of artwork you can do in Patina, but Patina is great for all kinds of other personal and work purposes too.

Patina can even be used as a very basic image management tool for cropping, rotating, resizing, and saving photos as a different file type.

As a Mac user accustomed to attractive, well-designed software, you'll appreciate Patina's elegant interface and user-friendly design.

If you've used Microsoft Paint before, you'll find that Patina is as simple to use as Paint, if not simpler, and has additional really useful features, including rotation of objects at any angle, transparent image saving, opening/importing of PDF, AI, PSD, and EPS files, and more.

Unlike most other Paint-like apps that are derivations of an open source program, Patina was designed and built from scratch in the US with great care and attention to detail to be as easy to use as possible.

We're confident that you'll find Patina to be the best simple painting, drawing, and sketching app in the Mac App Store.

Read the Quick Start Guide on our support page patinaapp.com/support for some simple information about how to get started using Patina, and read the FAQs if you want to learn more about using advanced features, such as transparency, controlling rotation in fixed increments, smooth edges (anti-aliasing), smooth resizing (interpolation), alpha color blending, DPI settings, and more.

Check out the tutorial screen in the app (go to the Patina menu, then click on "Show Tutorial") and the demo video on patinaapp.com (note that the demo video is from an earlier version of the app and doesn't include all current features).

Contact us at support@patinaapp.com if you cannot figure out how to do something.

IMPORTANT: Patina is not a vector app, does not have layers, and does not allow you to isolate and manipulate already drawn objects in the same way that you can in a layout app like Pages or in a presentation app like Keynote or PowerPoint. If you post a negative review stating that Patina does not do any of those things, we are going to point out that you did not read this description before purchasing and we will request that Apple remove the review since it is unfair to fault the app for not doing something that you were informed it does not do.

If you have a comment or suggestion, please email us at developer@patinaapp.com. We greatly value and appreciate your input. Some new features are the direct result of feedback from users.

Patina is Retina optimized and works great with all versions of OS X and MacOS starting with 10.8 (Mountain Lion) and including Mojave.

If you like Patina, we really appreciate you letting other Mac users know about the quality of the app by leaving a rating in the Mac App Store for this current version, and writing a review if you have time. We offer Patina at a low price to make it available to as many people as possible. In order to support our ongoing efforts to continually improve the app, it's really helpful if our users can rate it. Thank you for taking a moment to do that for us!

Patina is crafted with care in California and Washington.

Release Notes

29/02/2020 | Version : 1.2 | Size : 9.9 MB
Patina is now better than ever. Here's what's new in this version:

• Improvement in "undo" functionality (sorry for any instability you may have experienced previously - it should be rock solid stable now)
• Improvement in methods for saving transparent images (for more details, read the related topics in the Quick Start Guide and FAQs on patinaapp.com/support)
• Added support for opening/importing EPS format files

When you read reviews, keep in mind that most comments that are not positive are either because before buying the app the user didn't first read here the description of what the app does do and does not do, or because the user assumed the app doesn't do something that it actually does do, and they would know it does do that if they read the Quick Start Guide and FAQs, or if they simply asked us.

13/07/2017 | Version : 1.1.4 | Size : 9.1 MB
We had to do a few quick bug fixes. Here are the new features we added just prior to this current update:

• Freehand select tool
• Drawing with transparent "color" using line, pencil, and brush tools
• Preferences setting "Tool Buttons Expand on Mouseover" (if you prefer not to have to click to show all tool choices)
• Resizing grips on the middle of the bottom side and middle of the right side of the canvas
• Improvements to text rendering
• Performance enhancements

01/11/2016 | Version : 1.1.2 | Size : 8.8 MB
This big update of Patina includes some really nice enhancements and a few bug fixes:

- Two new types of arrow tools (solid head and linear head).

- Two new types of line tools (dotted line and dashed line).

- You can now open/import PSD, PDF, AI, and PS files (PSD files only open as non-layered, and you cannot directly save in these formats, but you can use the MacOS print dialog to save as PDF or PS format).

- User-configurable DPI setting (in Image menu, Adjust Canvas Size...).

- The eye dropper tool now shows sampled color in real time when you hover over the canvas, and it even distinguishes between the default white color canvas that represents a transparent background (i.e., a neutral background with no color) vs. a true white color that you have added to the canvas.

- Now you can optionally use a checkerboard canvas instead of the default white canvas to represent a transparent background by toggling Transparent Background on in the View menu. (Saving an image with a transparent background is now done by this same method instead of using a check box in the save dialog.)

- The rotation degrees indicator now has a decimal point, and you can control rotation degrees in exact 1, 5, and 45 degree increments by using the Option, Control, and Shift keys respectively while rotating with the mouse pointer.

- Improved automatic resizing of canvas to accommodate bigger image sizes.

- Improved usage of slider to increase and decrease size of selected areas.

- Keyboard shortcuts for ruler and grid.

- Moved Crop from Image menu to Edit menu.

- Full compatibility with Sierra, the newest version of macOS (formerly called OS X).

If you like these enhancements, please support our ongoing efforts to make Patina increasingly excellent by taking a quick moment to rate this new version of Patina in the Mac App Store. Many people have told us that the price for Patina is very low relative to the high quality of the app. We want to keep it that way, and you can help by posting ratings and reviews. Thank you!
