    I just switched over from PC, and I took a screen shot from safari. How do I paste this picture in a program and paste it. I did the shift-cmd-3 function which should save it as a file. Where is the file located? I noticed that there is no paint like program, or am I missing something. help!

    It should be saved on your desktop as Picture n.[jpg|png] :)

    This is not true. iPhoto is quite adept at editing raster graphics files. However, I strongly recommend GraphicConverter. It is not free, but it is well worth the price. If you are poor or just a cheapskate, then GC is fully functional even if you don't pay the shareware fee.

    Grab

    You can use Grab (You'll find it in the Utilities-Folder) to save screenshots as pictures.

    No.

    But there are many free ones available. Do a search. Try MacUpdate. Apple Downloads. Etc.

    Macs have an annoying gap in software for sub-$100 pixel editors. To get going, try Seashore or GIMP. Seashore is basically Paint for the Mac.

    For a reasonable price, there are now Pixelmator and Acorn. I have Pixelmator, though I've not used it in a few months. Last I tried, they were adequate graphics editors, though still substantially behind Windows software from 10 years ago. But they continue to improve, and might meet your needs.

    Thanks for all the replies. I felt like an idiot when I minimized all my windows and saw 18 pictures sitting on the desktop. Either way, it seams off there isn't a basic picture creator/editor program included. I guess for every thousand aspects of mac I like better than PC, there had to be a few I didnt like.
