good basic photo editor

in Mac Software edited January 2014
the one feature i use that isn't in iPhoto is the ability to resize pictures. for this i keep around an old version of Photoshop, but I'd like to get rid of it and need a good replacement. i'd like it to be shareware too.

    It only costs $35. Doesn't include all the pro features that Photoshop does, but can do basic resizing.

    If you liked Photoshop you could upgrade to PS Elements 2.0. It's $29 after rebates at

    if you just need the basics maybe try out a copy of adobe photodeluxe.

    it's basicly a cheap copy of photoshop but dumbed down so its easier to use.

    That's a pretty sweet deal. The $40 mail-in rebate from Amazon is easy to get. But the $30 rebate requires you to own a competing product. If you don't own a competing product but are a student, getting the academic price from an edu mail-order like <a href=""; target="_blank">Academic Superstore</a> for $50 may be cheaper. Don't forget to take shipping into consideration when you decide where to buy.

    ImageViewer is -to me at least- the best pictureviewer 'with'... you can resize, adjust brightness and contrast, and some other stuff, but the good thing is the slide show ability and its compactness - tried iPhoto once but deleted it after five minutes.

    Every time my wife tells me that she wishes she could do x y or z with our photos I find a simple way to do it in Graphic Converter.
