Tux Paint for Mac OS X description
Tux Paint is a free, award-winning drawing program for children ages 3 to 12 (for example, preschool and K-6). It combines an easy-to-use interface, fun sound effects, and an encouraging cartoon mascot who guides children as they use the program. Tux Paint provides a blank canvas and a variety of drawing tools to help your child be creative. Additional artwork ("stamps") can be downloaded and installed, providing a sticker-book functionality. Tux Paint has been translated into over 45 languages, and a graphical configuration tool for parents and teachers is available which allows Tux Paint to be reconfigured to suit the special needs of children or the classroom environment. Simple Interface * A number of useful drawing tools are made available. (See Drawing Tools, below.) * The drawing canvas is a fixed size, so the user doesn't need to worry about 'pixels' or 'inches' when making a new picture. * The entire program fits on a screen as small as 640x480, and can be displayed full-screen, to hide the computer's underlying 'desktop' interface. (It defaults to 800x600 mode, but can run at larger sizes and in portrait or landscape mode, as well.) * Loading and saving of images is done using thumbnails, so no knowledge of the underlying operating system's filesystem structure is needed. Even filenames are unnecessary. Entertaining Interface * Fun sound effects are played when tools are selected and used. * A cartoon version of Tux, the Linux penguin, appears at the bottom to give tips, hints and information. Drawing Tools * Paint brush o Various brushes available o Parents/teachers can add more brushes o Brushes can be animated o Brushes can change shape depending on the direction they're drawn o Alternate color palettes can be created and used * Rubber stamp o Hundreds of photographic and cartoon stamps images are available o Parents/teachers can add more stamps and create categories o Stamps can have descriptive text and sound samples (names, facts, etc.) and/or sound effects assigned to them o Stamps can be resized, flipped and mirrored o Raster bitmaps (Portable Network Graphics ("PNG")) with full-color and alpha transparency (32bpp RGBA) supported o Vector graphics (Scalable Vector Graphics ("SVG")) supported * Line tool o Uses Paint Brush's brushes o 'Rubberband' shows where the line will be drawn as you move the mouse * Shape tool o Draw various filled and unfilled polygonal shapes o Rotate shapes (this feature can be disabled for younger children) * Text and Label tools o Come with various fonts o Bold, italic and size can be changed o Parents/teachers can add more fonts o Supports numerous languages (See International Character Input, below) o Labels may be moved or edited later (Coming soon) * 'Magic' (special effects) tool o Blind - pull window blinds down, or across, the picture (Coming soon) o Blocks - turn parts of the picture 'blocky' o Blur - blur parts of the picture using the mouse o Bricks - paint realistic large or small brick patterns o Calligraphy - a smooth brush that changes thickness depending on how quickly you stroke o Cartoon - make parts of the picture look like a cartoon o Chalk - make parts of the picture look like a chalk drawing o Color & White - turn the picture monotone o Color Shift - Jumble the colors of the picture o Confetti - Throw confetti over your picture o Darken - darken the colors of parts of the picture o Distortion - slightly alters the position of the picture under the brush o Drip - make parts of the picture look like it's dripping away o Edges - outline the edges of shapes in yur pictureRelease notes: New Release* New Starters * New Magic Tools * Magic Tool Improvememnts * System-Related Improvements * Build System Improvements * Documentation Improvements * Other Improvements * New localizations * Localization Updates [ Tux Paint for Mac OS X full changelog ]
