    I would like to get my hands on some photo editing software.

    Basically I would like to create images where a person is replicated a few times.

    Firstly I'm not really sure how I'd do it and secondly can anyone recommend and software to do it for iPhone or iMac

    Thanks

    Perfect Photo Suite by On One Software. You can either use clone tools or put several images on different layers and use masks to make all the people visible in one view. PPS can be used as standalone or as a plugin to Lightroom.

    You could do this in any software that use layers.
    Photoshop
    OnOne
    Pixelmater
    To name a few.
    Some you can get free trials of. Might give you a better idea of which you like.

    Graphic Converter (costs around $35.00). This is the "Poor Man's PS"

    Pixelmater is OK, too. And cheaper.

    Also, depending on camera, check the apps available for it. I know Sony do a multi exposure app that does this in camera. Costs about £4. not used it so cant vouch for the quality of the output.

    Pixelmator

    I made my decision ..Pixelmator it will be...it seems that the Pixelmator Staff is following closely what is happening with the deletion of Aperture. Read more here:
    http://www.pixelmator.com/blog/2014/07/01/bye-aperture-hello-photos/

    I am sure that "Photos" will be fine tuned and I expect a lot of plugins being created by Pixelmator to ultimately become a very Adobe competitive Aperture replacement..

    I'd go with Photoshop or Pixemator, either one should do the job.

    I tried gimp years ago, I hated it. I'd rather spend a few bucks on Pixelmator :)

    I use it pretty frequently and it works fine, although I prefer paint.net, but that's not available on Mac. :)
