PaintTool SAI for Mac 0.3 by bryce-z PaintTool SAI for Mac 0.3 by bryce-z
DOWNLOAD LINK: [link]

EDIT 12-19-11: SAI 4 Mac 0.3, download link updated.

New version has a completely different Wine core for testing.

If you're having trouble launching it install XQuartz.

This is PaintTool SAI running on Mac OS X via a self contained Wine wrapper. I put this together and figured it'd be useful for some people here on dA. If you'd like to give it a try click the download link. Enjoy!

To install: Double click to unzip and drag PaintTool SAI4MAC.app to your Applications folder.

Known issues include no tablet pressure recognition, this is a limitation of Wine and X11, sorry.

Repeat: TABLET PRESSURE DOES NOT WORK AND WILL NEVER WORK.

Maximize may not always function but you can still drag the window to the desired size.

DISCLAIMER: If it's apparent that you didn't read the description before making a comment don't be surprised if your question goes unanswered.


Attention: Due to the massive influx of stupid comments from people that didn't read the description or bother to comprehend anything about this before commenting, I'll be taking this down by the years end as I'm tired of constantly having to respond to these people.
I decided to leave this up since stupid comments en masse seemed to decline, enjoy.

I likely won't be making any new updates for future versions of OS X or bugfix releases, this may change but the future prospects aren't likely, current version works on Mountain Lion but you may need to get the XQuartz libraries installed.

Thanks for sharing and everything, but it's kinda useless to me if it doesn't have pen pressure. Sigh.

I've been using this for about a year (thank you OP!) but yesterday it suddenly won't open at all for no reason...?
(and before anyone says it - yes, I've tried restarting my mac and turning it off and on again! :unimpressed: )

I've not updated my mac or anything like that, and I've tried deleting it and re-downloading it, etc, and still no luck :///
Does anyone have any ideas why this might be...? Thanks!

First you copy the image, (of course) then you go on a new canvas, click "edit" in the top left corner, and there will be a paste option, click that.
