    What's a good image editing program I can use on a G3 that can run under 128mb that isn't GIMP? I need something that's like Photoshop. What is a version of Photoshop that can run under 128mb by the way? What is an alternative? I don't care if it's slow, it just needs to run okay on its own.

    Perhaps Color It! or their other version named Enhance would suit your purposes. I haven't used it for some time so check the requirements.

    Mmm, it costs a bit much, was looking for something like freeware, etc.

    What is the last version of Photoshop that ran with 128MB? There had to be one.

    Found just what I needed. Compositor. Got a copy of QuarkXPress too. :D.

    Photoshop 7 had a minimum of 128MB (192MB recommended), so I'm guessing PS 6 would be better.

    Why don't you just upgrade the RAM for $40 and ask then which image manipulation program runs with 768/1024MB of RAM?

    I'm planning on doing that eventually. I'm just asking for now.

    Best course of action:
    PS 7
    upgrade RAM to 1 GB. It doesn't cost much at all
