Free image editor like photoshop?

    I'm looking for a free image editor that will do some of the most basic photoshop tasks for OS X Leopard, like crop, brighten/lighten, rotate, and maybe a paintbrush of some sort. I would use it so occasionally, that it's not worth it for me to buy anything serious, or I would (unless someone wants to recommend some $5-$10 app). Are there any thoughts on what's the best free image editing app out there?

    GIMPshop may just be your best option, however clunky.

    If you want to spend more, look at Pixelmator :)

    Remember that Preview can crop and rotate images, and also change the brightness/saturation/etc of pictures

    iPhoto goes a bit further :)

    Alternativly, go out and buy a semi decent camera and it will probably come shipped with Adobe elements...

    Right, but if I want to take off, say the square edge of some circular logo, I have no choice. That's why preview doesn't work for me. Neither Preview nor iPhoto have a simple paintbrush, which is all I really need beyond those apps.
