    Google's Picasa and Rhapsoft's LiveQuartz work pretty good... and iPhoto obviously...

    Are you on a Mac? iPhoto came with it. Are you asking for photoshop for free? If so, that's against the rules.

    Not free but cheap is Pixelmator. Free and decent is Picasa.

    The GIMP needs the X11 layer to run on OS X. See the Requirements section at for a link to XQuartz

    Also, as others have said, iPhoto is good depending on how much functionality you need

    Lately I've started using Acorn. It's a normally a pay-for image editor, but there's a free version that has a few limitations (I don't do heavy image editing, so I don't even notice them). I've done a lot of searching, and it's the best I've found for free image editors.
