    Yesterday, I was trying to figure out how to edit some pictures I took on iPhoto. Came to realize that I could not do any editing. All I was looking to do was write in a caption in the photo.

    Anyway, is there a program like Photoshop or Paint that comes with the system? I could not find it.

    Thanks.

    You could always download GIMP. You would need to install x11 if you don't have it installed already.

    GIMP is a open source app that is similar to photoshop.

    If you can't get on with Gimp, you don't have to pony up for the full Photoshop. There's a Mac version of Photoshop Elements but as with most Adobe stuff at the moment, it'll be running under Rosetta if you have an Intel Mac.

    £57 here in the UK, although the $ price may be even cheaper.

    Hi


    If all you need is to write on top of the photo, you'd better use a Word processor, like Openoffice.org. Just paste your pic onto a text document, add a text box, select everything then export it back to JPG or whatever format you like.
