    I need a very basic and easy Photo App. I will not need to do a lot of editing with it. All I need to do is to be able to Add an Arrow or Circle to the photo and some basic text.

    I have:
    Colapic 2
    Composure
    Diptic
    Picframe

    I would at least like to add some basic shapes.

    Thanks Kate

    Actually Preview can do that. Just click on the toolbox in the toolbar.

    Also take a look at Seashore.
    It does basic editing, with shapes, text, brushes, layers and has a nice uncomplicated interface.

    I second Gimp - it's pretty powerful, although admittedly not the simplest program to use...

    I like pixelmator it's interface is better and more consistent then Gimp. I'm just not a fan of Gimp, perhaps its changed over the years but I never really found it to be worth the effort.
