    We converted over to apple some time ago. Now we have three mac's. Everything is easy to use. One thing I haven't taken the time to learn is how to chop and edit photo's like I used to do with Photoshop Pro. Now Im trying to find a good freeware to try out on the mac. Any fellow mac users know which software might work? I used to be able to chop rigs and paste in rollcages, wheels, bob a bed, etc... I'd like to be able to do that again.

    thanks

    I'd stick with PhotoShop.

    If you've got the PC version, you may be able to call Adobe and let them know you switched over to the Mac, and you can probably upgrade from the PC version to the newest version for the standard $149. Then you can run CS2.

    Having used Macs for over 15 years (PCs intermittently, reluctantly): iPhoto comes with the Mac as factory software but does not do half as much as Photoshop. And Photoshop is indeed easier on the Mac. Canvas will do some things, but is really designed to be more of a drawing program (vector graphics) than image manipulation (pixel based). Get Photoshop and be done with it.

    If you're looking for something photoshop like for cheap (free) you might give GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program) a try. I used Photoshop under Windows before I switched over to Linux. Now that's what I use, but I usually do pretty simple stuff. They do have a Mac version.

    We have OS10.3.9 on our macs. I havent figured out how to use iPhoto to cut and paste in other photo's. I used to do it on the pc with photoshop. I like using free or freeware so I can try it before I buy it.
