    Do any of you know of a good photoshop alternative for Mac? I use GIMP on Windows, but on Mac it still uses the Windows shortcut keys, so it's confusing.

    You can try Pixelmator

    Or Photoshop Elements

    Pixelmator may be suitable for you.

    Edit: I am getting slow in my old age. :eek:

    I'm not sure if Pixelmator is powerful enough. I'm a freelance web designer, so I need something that's as powerful as Photoshop. I'll try it out though.

    Pay attention 007 :)

    If you truly need something as powerful as Photoshop, then you probably need Photoshop

    I checked it out. I don't see any way to configure the gradients though. The gradient options are very limited, unless I'm completely missing something.
