    What is a good reasonably priced photo editing program for Mac, I have been using Adobe PhotoDelux that came with my HP and really like it.

    How advanced are you/do you want to be? Are you professional? Tell us more about your requirements and we can help. If you only do minor editing, then iPhoto can work for you, but if you need more muscle, there are other apps that will help.

    Duff-Man says....if you've been using Photo Deluxe and are happy with it, then your best bet is probably Adobe's Photoshop Elements. It's very inexpensive and does everything the "average" person needs (and then some!) - it is basically what the old Photo Deluxe has evolved into....oh yeah!

    Aperture is terrific. I highly recommend it. :)

    Photoshop Elements vote from me, it's a good all round app for anyone looking to progress/want's a broader feature set.

    +1 for photoshop elements from Adobe. If you ever find it lacking you can always get photoshop. Both have many versions and are mature. Adobe definitely has a monopoly in the digital photo realm.

    Photoshop/Elements and Aperture and very different applications, both useful in their own way. I'd wait to hear more about what the OP is looking for before venturing a suggestion.
