    I use Photoshop 7 and Photoshop Elements 4. I'm not sure where to find a trial though but I've seen them there a few times.

    This is the only link I see but you need an Adobe account.

    Try Preview>Tools>Image Correction for very simple photo editing.

    thats not really what i want...iphoto can do better than that,and i actually have ''image tricks'' software it has many awesome effects thats are very easy to apply...so what i need is a good simple app that let you paint on your pictures and put text on them..

    I think it works more slowly than on a PowerPC machine but it works.

    Photoshop Elements 5 should be out soon anyway, since the Universal CS3 is out.

    I use Adobe Lightroom to get the right balances and colours and then Adobe photoshop CS2 if I need to actually change details or make major revisions using selections to the photos.

    I am quite a high end user though so...

    Photoshop CS3 although Elements would probably do me for about 90% of my work.

    Isn't CS3 like a $700 package?

    A bit of overkill for some simple photo editing. I too would like something that does a bit more that iPhoto, but without breaking the budget. I think PS Elements, when the UB version comes out, will fit my needs. Anyway that is more in my price range for a photo editor.
