Customer Reviews

Doesn’t deserve the one star it forced me to give it...

This program will crash for any reason at anytime. I use a brand new macbook pro which has been very reliable using most other programs. I have had pro paint crash for: using “undo” feature, saving, exporting/rendering, zooming in/out, clicking on almost every tool option… You get the idea

Do not purchase this program. DO NOT PURCHASE THIS PROGRAM. It crashes every few mins for no reason at all. If you do manage to get something edited and saved the next time you open the file it will be missing a layer, and the next time you open it after that another layer is gone. It will delete one layer everytime you open/close a project. Very dissapointed. Basically no support as it was to difficult to get a hold of any help.

I don’t know or understand any of the positive reviews on here. They must be paid for. I have googled my problem and a lot of people had the same complaints yet I see almost no reviews stating that. This company must delete or hide the negative comments, I don’t get it…. You probably won’t ever see this….

Great app

This is a great app for anyone who is looking for a free photoshop app. It took me a couple tries to figure out how to do exactly what I wanted to, but eventually I got the hang of it. The features and tools are very easy to comprehend you just need to figure out what order to use them in to get the product you are looking for. Could use a selection tool in the form of a circle instead I had to free hand select it but otherwise a great tool. I highly recommend this app to anyone who is even remotely considering it.

Best Thing To Having Photoshop Cloud Rental

I love that I have all of the same/similar tools of Photoshop,but without the cloud rental cost. I miss being able to maniuplate and create images with layers. Pro Paint is more than just a “Handy Photo Editor.” It’s one of the best and cost effective Photo Editors for marketing and creative professionals who want more, but can’t afford monthly cloud cost.
