    It's time again to tap in resourceful MacRumors community for an advice. Last time, I asked the question, I discovered NeoOffice, so I hope for repeat.

    Since switching to Mac couple of months ago, I was able to find equivalent or better OSX application for almost everything I need with one notable exception:
    Simple, free or low-cost image editor (something like Microsoft Paint on steroids).
    All I need to do is to be able to edit pixel-by-pixel small images (up to 128x128).
    On a Windows, I used Paint Shop Pro. It was much more that I ever needed.
    On Mac, I tried GIMP but it's way too much for what I need to do and interface is hard to like. I also tried Pixen, I like features but it's very unstable.

    So the question is: Is there anything else?

    Thanks in advance.

    I use Macromedia Fireworks- it's not free- but it can do everything.

    Thanks, but 300 USD price would be hard for me to justify for something I use couple of hours a month.

    Which Mac do you have? Power ones come with GraphicConverter, which should do all that you want it to do (if not, it's shareware - $35 if you decide to keep it - and available here).

    Thanks jsw, I will download it and give it a try.
    By the way, I have iBook G4.

    One question regarding GraphicConverter: Does it support editing tools like pen, brush, fill, etc?

    Yes, it supports those things, and I think it's a good app for the price ($35), plus, of course, you can try it for free.
