    How can I edit a photo in the sense that I take a photo and add another one in it. Is this possible? What I am trying to do is create an avatar by taking one picture and putting it in the center of another. Can I do this?:eek:

    Correct me if i am wrong but iPhoto doesn't really do collages or cutting and pasting pictures. I have a love/hate relationship with iPhoto.

    Photoshop or for a free option, GIMP.

    iPhoto is a photo management app, basic photo editing (colour, contrast etc.) an display options (cards, calendars, slideshows etc.) It's not designed to be and image editor in the way you want. iPhoto 6 is much better for editing than iPhoto 5 but it's not what you need.

    But GIMP's pretty good.

    Are there any other ones? GIMP seemed a little complicated and hefty to me.

    download the 30 day trial of photoshop and worry about if you need an image editor later.

    That is an excellent idea but it says I'd have to register an Adobe ID, which I would prefer not to do. Would the app Preview let me take a picture and put it into another?

    when you say put an image into another are you talking about scaling an image down and placing it over another image? Or are you talking about more advanced blending options?

    Oh and I wouldn't worry about the adobe thing. just type in a bunch of crap for your info.

    SeaShore? The aqua version of GIMP maybe?
    I would reccomend signing up to adobe and downloading a free 30 day trial, it's by far your best option.

    You don't need the full version of Photoshop to do this. You could just buy Photoshop Elements 3 which is much cheaper - around $60 - possibly less with rebates.

    Yes. that's exactly what I wanted to do, take one image, make it smaller, and put it over something in the other image.

    Gimp

    Being new to my MacBook Pro, are saying GIMP works with the Mac operating system?
