  • Mac Photo Editing Software

    So I'm looking to get a Photoshop type program for my Mac so that I can do some basic graphic design type stuff without paying the $1000 or more for Photoshop. Any recommendations on good programs that arent too expensive but still useful.

            Wow, no one suggested The Gimp? As powerful as photoshop, multi-platform, open source & free.

              No, because when using the Gimp you multiply the "time to achieve X" by about 4 over most other tools, because it doesn't offer filter layers, doesn't offer anything past 8 bits per pixel, has totally shit/nonexistent support for printing and overall has the feel of something a bunch of kindy kids threw together whilst waiting for milk and nap time.

              Best suggestion: find a copy of Photoshop and use it. One day they'll get the message and make the price reasonable.

                  ^ this, I figure if you wouldn't pay for it in the shops, you cause no harm by acquiring it otherwise

                      On a certain island in Scandinavia, there be a bay full of rum drinking buccaneers salty dogs pirates. These guys are known for their vast collection of stuff and the fact that they drink rum all the time, without a care whether the weather is fine and sunny or the rain is coming down in torrents.

                      Why do I mention this? Well, I'd love to have a nice and cleaned up photo of them, of course!

                        aye I didn't mention GIMP cause I hate it!
                        Thing that makes it even worse is on the Mac; it only works on Mac OS X+ and you need to install a bunch of other stuff cause Mac doesn't come with the open source stuff that is already on GNU/Linux GIMP - for Mac OS X.
