I've wanted a Mac for about 9 years and have finally decided to get an iMac! I have been using a Dell Inspiron for the past 6 years lol.

I know this may seem stupid, but my only concern with a Mac is being able to resize photos. I tried out iPhoto, Aperture and Preview and see NO option for resizing a photo lol.

The software on my Dell makes it VERY easy to resize photos, how the hell do I do it on a Mac?!

Thank you very much!

Another question, I am getting the 21.5" model. If I'm going to be getting into a lot of photo editing in the future would you recommend the 8GB RAM and i5?

4GB of RAM will be plenty for now.

When you need it, you could upgrade to 8GB in the future when it is far cheaper.

Everyday more people switch to mac.
The i5 is a great choice. one of the beautiful things about mac is a core i5 mac runs like a core i7 windows machine that has tons more ram.
also, 4GB of ram is plenty for mac, and apples memory is pretty expensive to upgrade, but that's probably because they use top of the line ram.

welcome to mac!
preview is the easy way, iphoto is a drag.

Preview>Tools>adjust size>image dimensions pixels/size etc>hit OK resized!

Everything else is easy as pie. You'll wonder why you ever bought a PC.

Preview is easy but I do all my touch ups in the free version of Acorn Simple crop tool with the height and width pixels displayed
