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.

I downloaded this and it works fine but when I try to open a picture. Like any pictures I have saved onto my laptop, I can't open them. Is this a common problem or did I forget to do something?

Go into System Preferences, click "Security & Privacy", make sure you're in the "General" tab, and at the bottom there should be a button that says "Open Anyway" click the button :D (Big Grin)

The lineart layer has a setting where you can tap and drag left or right on a line you've drawn and make it thinner or thicker

You can use your tablets, but there is no pressure sensitivity!
For example, if you wanted to make a line bolder by pushing down harder, you would not have the ability to do that with this program.

Since there are 2 types of layers you can use, I use the Lineart layer, which is beside the normal layer. The lineart layer smoothes the lines you draw with the pen tool, or you could use the curve tool, which you can draw out the line you want very smoothly. You can also use the edit tool on normal drawn lines. You cannot blur, fill (bucket tool), or select with the lineart layer. Needless to say, I highly recommend this layer type for lineart only.

I like this program, it works good with my computer. I only wish I could make it appear more like a Mac app instead of a windows when I do or save something to one of my folders. It would be so sweet if I could do that, otherwise it is okay. I would not download SAI from anywhere else. This version maybe lacking somethings from the windows version, but the person who worked so hard to put this app together did a good job. It has no glitches so whatever and my computer is a late 2009 and running OS X Yosemite. Thank you bryce-z😄

Ok, I downloaded the program and got it up and working on OS X Yosemite believe it or not, but are there more tools or a tutorial for this exact version that can show me where more of this programs stuff is. Please someone respond, thank you, and have a good day.
