Hi, I have just got a mac and am interested in using some software to add some filters and effects to my photos. Are there any applications in iLife which are capable of this or are there any good free to download ones?

I am a poor student, wish I could afford Photoshop :-(

Gimp is apparently a free alternative to photoshop which is well spoken of. Havent tried it myself, but it's worth a look

I liked SeaShore as a free porgram. It's a heavily simplified app based on GIMP. It probably won't do quite all the stuff you want though.

I recommend The Gimp as well.
