Edit, Crop, and Add Clipart to Your Images with MiniPaint - 25 Copies to be Won!

By ObiGeorge on 13 May 2010 12:36 pm EDT

MiniPaint is a great little application to edit, crop, and add some custom graphics to images on your BlackBerry. Once installed, you simply open an image from your picture gallery, hit your options button, and select the Open in MiniPaint tab. Once the image is opened you can select from the following options:

  • Scale- Zoom in and out of the photo 
  • Clipart- Choose from hundreds of downloadable clipart including word balloons
  • Text- Add text to your photos with options for font, size, and color
  • Crop- Resize your image and save to a new image file
  • Filters- Choose from many filters including sepia, solarize, greyscale, and more...
MiniPaint is a very convenient application for image editing on your BlackBerry. The crop feature alone makes it a good buy for me. You can pick it up on sale until May 15th for $3.99 at the CrackBerry App Store. It is available for most devices.

Contest: We have 25 copies of MiniPaint to give away. Just leave a comment on this post to enter. Contest ends this Sunday at Midnight PST. Please only leave one comment, multiple entries wont count.

Edit, Crop, and Add Clipart to Your Images with MiniPaint - 25 Copies to be Won!


Would love to have a copy. Will surely help in cropping images to set as wallpapers which are clicked from a cam/another phone. Then could also be used for adding funny comments on the mates photos and then sending them off BBM.

This is my first EVER post on I am a long time reader thought. I saw this app and decided it was time to start posting. I hope I win!!

I was a big fan of the free one. All my fiends hated me because I would take their BBM picture and put a mustache on it... ahhhh good times.

I was just asked about an app like this for Blackberry today at my office. His friend had one for his iPhone, and he wanted one for his BB. Great timing for the article. App looks good.

Oh man this app is amazing. I love taking pictures on my blackberry and having this app will make it even better.

This is a feature that a lot of camera phones offer built into them, and now we have a chance to have it integrated as well! Choose me please!

I am also a crackberry cowboy and would love to use this app!!! Awesome Idea, and love the site. Keep it up.

Does it still let you save the original file without the edits?

If so, I'm in.

Momentos PhotoVideo

Would absolutely save me the time of sending the pics to a PC to make changes and then back the my BB.

I would like to have this app. I like to add to add new pictures to my Facebook and this would be awesome to have so I can make my pics be funny

i really like that...i could mess with alot of people using that app..i want it and i want it free...please

that an app like this would be really nice. My BlackBerry is always with me unlike my DSlr.
Good Luck to all!

Cool I can used it to modified my friend pic and upload it to bbm groups much faster if I can used this

this would rock!!! i'm always snapping pics of my frieds transfering to my comp and editing them and posting in strange places!! this would be awesome! and yes should come standard..... sigh........

ME ME ME ME I wanna win I never win...anywho just got my BB and I am totally the site!! Now I have a ton of reading to do.....

Probably the only thing I miss from the last 2 dumb phones I had years and years back. Editing pics or taking them in BW and Sepia was an option. Think one was a standard Samsung Flip (my first camera phone I believe) and the other was that beast of a phone the LG V or 9800. The one before the EnV and Voyager series.

I would love to win the application, It really looks very, awesome and all. Thanks bro, it would trully make my day.

Sounds good. I've been looking for something like this for a while now. Sign me up! Thanks!

I would love to win it...but if can bet your patootie that I will be buying it...LOL here is hoping I can wait that long

Why didn't this come pre installed on my Berry??? I am so tired of moving pics to computer to customize with paint program and then move back. This would save me so much time!

I really wished their was a app like this and now there is! I would really like to have this on my phone! Thanks Crackberry!

this is a great app since you can take a picture with the camera, polish it with the contrast/saturation features, and send/share it right away.

good stuff!!!

I take lots of pictures with my blackberry it would be great to edit them on the phone please choose me

I never knew this app existed. How amazing. I hope I win a copy I'd use it sooo much. *fingers crossed*

Brilliant! Now I can cartoonize all the faces of my university teachers! Or the random bus driver!! or perhaps the bum on the street.. no.. wait.. that was not politically correct.. I take that statement back! (but not the picture!!) Muwahahaha!

But most of us -men- are just that- always young and always on high-scool frequency brain-waves... So, it would be nice to get a copy of this, although, like many mentioned, some basic editor should've been there from the start, by RIM... Since many regular phones 4,5,6,7 years ago have some kind of java-based pic editor- don't know why RIM hasn't put 1 yet... Maybe 6.0.....

Oh yes! i've been waiting on an app like this ever since my first storm....I really hope i get a copy. This is a MUST GET app for people who use their blackberry for the FUN side!

Great idea - this one will fly off the shelf!! This will be fun to have and would love to win it!!!! Put some of these iPhone idiots in thier place!!

Looks like a great app - super handy to be able to do basic stuff like cropping right on the BB! Thanks for the chance to win a copy!
