If you are using a Macintosh computer, you are running some version of OS X, not iOS (which is for iPhones, iPads, etc.) The "About This Mac" item on the Apple menu will tell you which version you are running. Which one is it?


As for the paint brush, have you made sure you have selected a layer in the Layers panel before using it?

also be sure that it's a pixel type layer, and/or that you have not applied a mask that hides the area where you paint.

take care,
