Just wanting to know and easy to use program(not PS) that is comparable to Paint Shop Pro for the PC. Also it must have something comparable to cloning in Paint Shop Pro

    Why not photoshop? Have you tried photoshop elements?

    Well Photoshop is too expensive and photoshop elements doesn't support Jaguar or Panther according to Adobe's page.

    There are a bunch of others aside from Elements, though PSE is probably the best choice overall if you don't want to pay a few hundred bucks, and it comes with a lot of peripherals.



    Graphic Converter is very popular and capable if a little quirky (but very unreliable).

    PhotoLine is a bit crufty but reliable IIRC.

    Portraits and Prints is very good but maybe more limited than what you're looking for.

    Goldberg is interesting because it uses QuickTime's built-in effects on images (which is why it's free)

    PhotoStudio and other applications by ArcSoft PhotoStudio looks like a fugly Windows port, but it works fairly well, and there are some nicer (it seems) apps they sell that might interest you. Of course, they have no Mac trial versions of their stuff, so who knows how you're supposed to commit to them.

    PhotoExpress might be too simple, but it looks interesting.

    ZeboPhoto looks interesting too, though the RealBasic badge on the page scares me a little.



    There's a ton of this sort of stuff for Macs. Check out www.MacUpdate.com or www.VersionTracker.com for more items.

    Photoshop Elements works on 10.3. I tried it a few months ago.



    If you can't afford the full Photoshop software, I still recommend Elements highly. If you're a student, you can get a hefty discount on it too.

    I use GraphicConverter all the time and like it. But when it comes to printing photos I can't stand it. Very limited in it's ability to size photos to a specific size and print them out.
