    Well I have been looking around but haven't found anything but I need some kind of good free html editor nothing special. I am used to using dreamweaver.

    I also need a pretty good basic photo editor just to crop and resize pictures nothing more nothing less. Thanks guys!

    For HTML, NVU or Aptana are about as close as you're going to get to DW for free.

    For photos, I'm kinda surprised no-one else has yet mentioned the Gimp. It's open-source and works extremely well. The only downside is that it runs under X11. It's as near to photoshop as freeware gets, though.

    If you don't mind spending a few bucks, but want to keep it sensible, PixelMator is very promising and only $59.

    You should find all of the above at either VersionTracker or MacUpdate.

    Possibly Mozilla SeaMonkey's composer thing would be enough? There's also Amaya for HTML editing but it sucks really.

    GIMP is pretty good.

    Taco HTML Edit is great as well, but it's not really like Dreamweaver.

    Smultron is a great code editor, and it's free. Personally, my favorite combo is TextEdit and CSSEdit, although those are both pay-for programs, I gladly bought them. I do this stuff all day every day, and those are the best.
