    hey, i'm sorry if this was brought up before, but i didn't feel like digging through the old threads...

    does anyone know of any free alternatives to photoshop? i'm looking for a software that i can use to crop and edit photos, but i'm not willing to drop $700 for photoshop. imagewell is out there, but i don't think it's enough to get the job done. any help would be great.

    thanks

    Gimp is the only serious alternative to Photoshop (and yes it does work on Leopard)

    Acorn is NOT free.

    i've been looking for the same thing as the thread starter. i know photoshop is the bees knees, but i just can't talk myself into dropping that kind of dough. not to mention that adobe has a horrid record of helping its customers when things like new OS's come out.

    Acorn and Pixelmator are not free, this is true. However, they are a tiny fraction of the price of Photoshop yet offer very powerful features. Worth checking out especially as you have already considered paying the extortionate price tag for PS. :)
