Hello, new mac user here. I hope I'm posting in the right section. I have a 15" rMBP & it's my first time using a mac. I'm a blogger and need a simple photo editing app. All basic functions needed (basic editing, watermarking, resize, crop & potential to make collages) I know macs are supposed to be user friendly, but right now I think my system is very time consuming & requires a lot of steps. Please correct me with my "mistakes" & help me find a better system. Currently I take most of my images on my iPhone 4. I have my photo stream synced to my mac. I sort through my images, make the basic adjustments needed (some contrast, sharpening, cropping, resizing...) in iPhoto. I move the images to desktop folders (iPhone photos, iPad photos, Blog photos, website photos & sub folders within the folders) since images are only stored on the photo stream for x amount of time. Should I not have them on desktop folders? Is there another place I should keep them? When I go into iPhoto I can't access desktop folders, why not? I also can't seem to drag/drop the photos from iPhoto I have to manually "copy/paste" them. Reason being, I like to keep my photos organized in "main" folders & appropriate subfolders. Example: "Blog Photos" Will have subfolders for posts, particular items, type... That way when I'm looking to upload an image I know exactly where to go: "Blog Photos" -> "Subscription"-> "March". This was the way I did it windows & helped me stay organized. Is there a different way of doing this on a mac? After I edit them I then go to Diptic (collage app) if I want to make a collage. I save that to a desktop folder & then have to open the image in gimp in order to add a watermark. I can also do this through boarderfx in iPhoto (through export) but need to move the image from my desktop folder to an iPhoto folder, export it to boarderxf and then save it to appropriate desktop folder. One other thing, every time I seem to "name" a photo in boarderfx, the name never shows up in my desktop folders it's always "IMG_xxx" I miss the old windows way of right clicking on something & re-naming it. How do I re-name something without exporting it again. I'm not looking for an image editing site like picnik or photomonkey where I have to import images from my computer. Basically I want to simplify my system and/or find an app that does all of my requirements (basic editing, watermark, resize, collage) I'm also not looking to spend a lot of money on this either. Photoshop & Aperture are too expensive and too advanced for my needs. Gimp is also too advanced for my photo editing needs. Thank you in advance for any help & suggestions.
