While it’s always a good idea to have a decent photo editor, drawing, or paint app on your Mac, the number of apps to choose from seems to be growing as fast as any category. Here’s a good one. It’s called Eggs.
After using at least my share and maybe some of your share of Mac drawing and painting apps, I often wonder what all the fuss was about MacPaint. Discretion prevents me from admitting that I used MacPaint, but, hey, it was black and white and shades of gray on a 9-inch display.
How good could it have been? Eggs could easily be described as what MacPaint would have been had development continued through the years.
All the standard MacPaint-like tools are there but not on floating palettes. Line, Curver, Oval, Star, Heart, Rectangle, etc.
Images can be cropped, flipped, rotated, and resized. The entire image size is adjustable. The number of undo/redo is adjustable.
Unlike some graphic design tools, Eggs lets you open multiple windows at the same time. Drag and drop photos in to edit, and import or export files as PNG, TIFF, BMP, GIF, or JPG.
Eggs does not blaze any new graphic design trails.
It’s relatively simple to learn with almost no learning curve at all. That makes it good for children who want to learn the basics of digital drawing and painting, or for any student with graphic design aspirations but stuck on a budget.
