    Have you looked at Picasa? If you're not afraid of Google, then it could be a decent, free alternative for you.

    I use Preview for light photo editing (depends on what you want to do).

    I will look at picasa and see what it is all about. Is it a third party app or internet based storage?

    I use Picasa on my Windows stuff. It has the option of uploading to Google's web albums, but it's not required. I actually found some of its features to perform better than iPhoto. For example, it was my impression that the red-eye tool was more reliable and quicker.

    I also played around with a trial of Lightroom. It was way too complex for my needs.
