    Before anyone utters the cry of "Photoshop" it slows down my computer and is above me.

    I simply want a program that will be able to create and edit images easily, and professionally.

    Short and Precise,

    Try Pixelmator, it's not free, but works well.

    Ah, that looks quite expensive. I was hoping to keep costs down to a mere nothing...


    It does look nice though. :)

    Ok, what are you looking for, feature-wise? A photoshop alternative, or some more simple?

    The Gimp is free and very powerful, but it isn't all that user friendly
    It is the most "photoshop" like alternative other than Pixelmator (which is not free)

    Paintbrush is definitely pretty good for basic editing, I prefer it to Pixelmator (I have both).
