    Hi,

    I’m a PC user who is about to jump in and buy his first Mac.

    I use Photo Shop and really like it. One of the features I use is the resizing of images. I can tell photoshop what size I want and it does it. Now I’ve been onto the Apple store in Bluewater and they couldn’t answer this question but...... What software will allow me to do this in the same kind of way Photo Shop does? I don’t really want to spend £700 again on Photoshop and if I’m honest it’s a bit of overkill for what I use it for. So what will let me do this? Does Aperture 2 let me do it?
    Many thanks,

    Tom.

    If you just want basic resizing, the "built-in" Preview can do it.

    For batch resizing, there are numerous freeware apps.

    Many apps will do this...

    I recommend Graphic Converter

    But you can also use:
    Pixelmator
    The Gimp
    Seashore

    and others I'm sure

    I think Preview will even do this

    Speak to Adobe, they allow you to switch platform (for Free usually).

    I don't believe switching platform licenses is free... but I have been wrong before

    I guess it depends which local Adobe office you use. Some allow if for free, some will charge a small amount.

    Had a friend recently move his Adobe licenses from PC to Mac and only had to pay 50 USD to do so.

    I use Fractals 6 for all of my resizing...

    Preview does this as well.
