    So I need to do some simple re sizing of some pictures for forums postage.

    I can't seem to figure out how to do it simply on OS X and constantly moving pictures over to my pc to do it easily on paint is a pain in the arse.

    Can anyone recommend a simple picture editor I can use, or teach me how to use iPhoto.

    Preview.app will allow you to easily resize pictures.

    Tools>Adjust Size

    Or if you need to do a large batch of them you could build a simple 2-step Automator workflow.

    (You might also discover some other things you can use Automator for- it's very handy)

    Link, please. I've never heard of that one, and would be interested in trying it.

    Seashore is just like Paint. It also works natively on OS X.

    Graphic Converter isn't really a drawing app, and Tux Paint isn't a fully native OS X app (I think... I might be wrong there.)
