    Its been a while since I have switched over to mac now but basically the only thing I miss about windows is MS Paint, I liked to have the free, simple photo editing tool, I basically just used it for cropping screenshots and things of that nature, anyway, I'm wondering if there is any free equivalent of MS Paint for mac that anyone here might know about?

    If all you want to do is crop, Preview will do that for you

    But you can try something like Seashore

    Trying not to sound dumb here but I just spent 5 minutes with preview and for the life of me could not find the crop button.

    A good way to find an option in of the menu items, go to Menu Bar > Help and enter the option you look for, in your case "Crop" for example. It works in 10.5 and 10.6.

    There are two things i miss about Windows!

    A) MS paint

    B) MS games, mine sweep, that pinball game, and the online card games were great too.

    Wow! GraphicConverter can do everything that MS Paint can do while looking so much better doing it. As for Minesweeper and Solitaire (which you did not mention), I have several implementations of each.

    You can find everything that I mentioned above wherever Mac software is listed for download. The most popular sites are VersionTracker.com and MacUpdate.com. CNET's download.com has renewed life. I also like Pure-Mac.com.
