Good news folks: I've found a temporary workaround to run Painter on Yosemite :-)

So, if you've read the crashlog carefully you would notice that the problem is in Qt library. Now, as it says here – this is a well known bug in Qt version 5.3.0, and has already been fixed in version 5.3.1. So all you need to do is update the Qt libs in Painter on your own. Here's how:

1. Goto and download the latest version of Qt for Mac
2. Install the latest version (this might take a while depending on your internet connection)
3. Goto to the directory on your harddrive where you installed Qt and locate this folders:
  a) 5.3/clang_64/plugins/platforms
  b) 5.3/clang_64/plugins/imageformats
  c) 5.3/clang_64/lib
4. Now locate your Painter app on your Mac, right click on it and select "Show Package Contents"
5. Navigate to Contents/Frameworks, take a look at all the frameworks that are listed there. Now, locate the same frameworks in 5.3/clang_64/lib and copy them over the existing ones in Painter package (you can ignore Breakpad.framework). Do the same for plugins/plaforms and plugins/imagefomats
6. Run the app again

That's it. Worked for me.

Now, beware that this is a different version of Qt, so this "fix" might actually break something inside Painter. I haven't had a time to test the app thoroughly yet, so use on your own risk!

We will investigate the Yosemite/Qt issue ASAP.

Thanks, Nicolas!
Can you also look into image drag'n'drop problem in Bitmap2Material standalone on Yosemite while you're on it? It doesn't work :-(
