    It sounds like iPhoto might work well for you. If you don't need advanced photo editing. If you don't want to spend a lot of money you can get pixelmator for more advanced work.

    Snapseed would be good. Without knowing your experience with photo editing it is hard to make a suggestion.

    LOL...I have looked at Pixelmator and it looks awesome :)
    I guess my experience is still somewhat limited, so I need something that won't frustrate my desire to be creative ;) Really appreciate your replies mrapplegate :)

    You're welcome. Snapseed or Pixelmator should work well for you. Pixelmator is more like Photoshop.

    I have 2.1.4 running on 10.8.2 and have not had a problem with limited use. But I also have Photoshop CS6 and use that more, so I can't judge it that well.

    Am I right in thinking Pixelmator has more possabilities than Snapseed? (Snapseed costs more though????)

    The difference is $5 I think.
    Think of Pixelmator as a really inexpensive Photoshop.
    Snapseed uses a different UI to process photos, and you really can't paint with it.
