    I have a mac, so I dont have paint, which would be perfect for this, but I need some place, maybe online that I can use that is similar with just a elipse/circle tool, rectangles, lines, text, etc. Black and white is fine. I have photoshop, but I cant make it work for crap.
    I found one "paint" copy, but it wouldnt let me download the pic to OSX or even save it online.

    Any ideas? Trying to make a very simple overview of a fish hatchery for a paper.

    Sounds like you need a vector drawing program like Freehand or Illustrator.

    I think I have a demo copy of Freehand if you PM your email addy.

    Fish hatchery?

    Is this a setup for some sort of weak joke?

    Actually, thanks for all the advice. Graphics bailed me out :busted:

    Sent me a PM that I could use powerpoint's drawing tools and save it as JPG and then open in photoshop to edit further.

    BTW-

    You can make a flow chart with the drawing tools in Excel.

    You can even add connectors that stick w/ the symbols so you can move em around.

    Well, you retard, the fish don't ever leave the raceways actually. The aerator column simply spills oxygenated water into the raceway from above.

    In all fairness, you don't need to know what a flow chart is and I don't need to know how fish get to the river. :D

    What are you talking about??? There is a giant green and white plane with Chinese on it. I have no idea who left the salmon on the tarmac though.

    The plane is Taiwanese. The language that is painted on the side of the plane was not in question. Fvckface.
