Random review:
“Within a span of 10 minutes, the computer center had transformed itself from a games-playing room to a room full of creative exploration. I can't explain how it happened, but I give a lot of credit to the programmers who created TuxPaint.” — Takoma Park Maryland Library, May 2012

Tux Paint for Mac OS X comes as two disk image (.dmg) files. One contains main program (Tux Paint) and a configuration program (Tux Paint Config.) for parents and teachers. Copy them to your hard drive's Applications folder. The other contains an application that installs the optional 'stamps' collection.

Using: The DMG disk image contains the Tux Paint Stamps installer. Double-click it to launch the installer.

Note: Internet Explorer may truncate the filename! Rename it to have a ".dmg" extension after downloading, or use another browser (such as Safari or Firefox).
