Did you know there’s a hidden paint app on your Mac? Here’s how to find it
Every once in a while, Apple introduces a new OS for its Macs that provides us with brand new features. Apple’s OS X 10.10 Yosemite software introduced so many new features that users back in 2014. OS X had some old features that you might not know about that still exist today. Even now, with macOS Monterey , there are a ton of programs on your mac computer this whole time. Paint has never been easier to utilize.
Winer’s instructions for accessing the paint functions in Apple’s Preview app include a few extra steps, which we’ll amend them here.
macOS Monterey paint
All you have to do is open any image file on your computer in Preview (if Preview isn’t your default app for image files, simply right-click on a file, hover over “Open With,” and then select “Preview.app”).
Then in the top menu in Preview, you’ll see a toolbox icon. Just click it and you’re ready to go. You’ll see your ability to do so much in Preview that previous versions of macOS didn’t have.
At the top of the screen, you’ll see the “Show Markup Tool” button with no label all the way to the right. It looks like a small pencil in a circle.
Click it, and you’ll open a whole new menu full of tools you can use to draw, write, and more.
The paint functions in Preview aren’t exactly on par with something like Photoshop, but there are plenty of simple tools for quick edits and markups. You can draw on documents, sign documents digitally and do even more with your laptop’s trackpad or a Magic Trackpad.
